I write because I'm not good at talking. It's the only way I'm really able to express myself. I've told my secrets in letters because I just can't force them up out of my throat.
I write because I have so many emotions, bubbling over. I mainly write in the middle of the night, when I can't keep it contained anymore. I write because I'm scared what I'll do if I stop.
I might also write in spite. In spite of all of the people who said that 'I'd never really amount to anything'.
