iWrite - A personal journey
Because I was born to do so
Flying out with a pen in my hand
And a piece of paper as my diaper
My mind already full of ideas
Ready to be read
Because I was taught the love of stories
Before going to school
While I was in school
I even made my own hardcover book
The story was lacking
But it started my writing adventure
Because I am obsessive
Obsessive with the English language
And how changing the words can make poetry
Draw a picture
Tell a story
Cause a break through of emotions that I never thought was possible
Because it is freeing
It takes me away
I can make up my own story
Escape from reality
When I am in my writing world
Nothing on the outside matters
There is no one home
Because I joined the military
I didn’t want to blow things up
I didn’t want to work on sick people
I didn’t want to be stuck filing papers
I wanted to do something that made a difference
I wanted people to enjoy my work
I wanted to be noticed
I was a local celebrity
I wrote for the military
And suddenly people wanted my help
Because I believe everyone needs a journal
Because my journal is my best friend
It never judges me
It never comments back
It is a good listener
Even if it can’t help solve problems
Because that is how I communicate with myself
It is how I figure out the arguments in my mind
It is how I clear my head
It is like an imaginary friend
Because it is my dream
I want to be published
I want to be famous
Because the words I say meant something
Even if it is to someone I never met
To help people
To give advice
To make them laugh
To make them open their eyes
To express my love
To express my anger
To express my feelings
That I can not express through
Because words are beautiful
And it sure beats my singing voice
Because it paints a picture
And I can not draw
Because this is my art form
And I understand how to use it
Because that is who I am
Writing is me!
