    Why I Write

    I've been passionate about writing poetry

    and songs, I've been writing since 6th grade, the poem was called “Words, Words, Words”. It was about being bullied and feeling like it was a terrible relationship, but it was a friendship. Then I shut myself in my journals, an wrote until I felt free.
