Why put pen to paper?
Why should I give my thoughts to the world?
What has the world done for me...?
The creativity I have nurtured in myself and harboured in my bedroom working long and hard only to be displayed to a cruel world for their - opinion - ?
Really? Does that make sense to you?
Do I need your opinion?
Why do I need your validation, I'm not writing for you…
Letting go the ideas buzzing around in my head the things that should be said but left unsaid
I’m writing because I need a release from the fight and the argument and the tension of life… it fuels my creative energy
So I guess that is something you have done for me,
Your wars and hatred and racism and abuse has opened my mind and made me write,
I’m writing because someone needs to tell you how it feels
I might not even be good but you have no right to judge because I’m not doing it for you
I'm writing for me.
That’s why I put pen to paper
That’s why I place fingers on the keyboard
That’s why I have open heart surgery in front of a faceless crowd
Because I need it.
