Why I Write

PROMPT: Why I Write

Many people may claim that they write to escape their own lives or to create a world beyond their own. But not me: I write as an act of rebellion. The sad reality these days is that we are born into a society which tells us who we should be. A society that may as well be putting shackles on us, so I write to break myself free of those very same shackles which act as a form of restriction. I write so that I can see and esplore the world in my own eyes without any person stopping me. I write so that I can voice out my own opinion the best way in which I can which is through my words. Not so many of us can talk in front of a group of people so we pick up our pens and we simply write. But to write is not a simple task though, because it requires one to have an opinion or a prompt.
