Poetry

Because

I write because 
Writing words is easier than saying them 

I write because 
My heart has words of its own 

Words that my mind believes are weak
My pride won't ever let me share 
Words that may not be well received 

I write because 
my heart has never let me speak 
Without burdening my mind with emotions 

I write because 
My heart holds my tongue hostage 
And you don't see
What this life's doing to me 

B.B. John
