I just read a quote that floored me
I have never understood something so clearly
Why do I write?
I write because there is no other way
I have so many things to say
And no one to say them to
My feelings have nowhere else to go.
I do not want to reveal my affection
For fear of losing a friend
I do not want to burden another with sadness
Because they are having a great day
Or they have problems of their own
I do not want to tell my family how I feel
Because I want to stay strong for them
It is never the right time to talk
But it is always the right time to write.
Nothing else can happen
So is poetry.
