I Write


I write, not because I must
But because the words can no longer be chained to my fears
I write to free my soul
To look beyond the glass that holds my reflection
I write to dream
To take the first step in a new direction
I write to escape
To breathe once more
I write to stop time
To undo the past that haunts me still
I write to find joy
To feel the thrill
I write, because there is no other way
To let the words take control
