everything inside of me
fingertips on keys
it’s hard for me to speak
i write to keep
from living beneath
I started writing to help navigate life.
I didn’t start writing because I wanted to be a writer.
I became a writer because I needed to write.
You and I both know life is heavy.
And life is messy.
Most days I find myself searching for a moment of peace amid the constant chaos of living.
And writing helps me take that first deep breath.
After spilling all that is bottled up within life becomes more bearable.
Writing helps me find the peace from moment to moment, from day to day, from now until then.
I write to keep from living beneath everything inside of me.
