Why I Write

Why do I write?

I write because

it creates an inner sun break on a rainy day
because I crave to see my words dance on a page,
make a rhythm that force my feet to dance,
and help me find my voice.

I write because

it keeps me sane
when the world around me seems anything but.

I write because

it strengthens my relationships,
relieves the tensions, gives purpose
to those moments I don't always understand.

I write because

I feel that I have been called,
and sometimes even gifted,
although those moments are rare,

I know somehow God meets me here

on this blank page filling slowly
with awkward words, hopes, dreams,
dances, stumbles, extreme cliff jumps
and puddle splashes, grey skies and rainbows.
