Sobering Release

Why do I write?

I write because I need to release my emotions

Physical activity doesn't quite cut it

It may help for a little,

But the emotions just return an hour or two later

Through writing I've found an emotional escape

These overwhelming emotions cause intoxication within my soul

By picking up this pen, I become sober again

My distress causes confusion

So I pick up my pen and bleed

The ink released gives me refreshing air to breathe

This ink that is released causes contentment to build up in my soul

I write because without this ink and self-expression I would be insane

This ink keeps me sane

This ink keeps me emotionally stable

This sobering release is how I cope

My hope is that this release of ink will turn into something beautiful
