Writing is
letting your feelings out
on a page.
Finding the
right words
to describe
a moment in time,
a feeling.
Writing says
what you can't say aloud.
Thoughts and emotions
swirling 'round
in your head
and heart.

The author's comments:
This piece of writing just came to me when I was laying on my bed one day wondering about writing. That led me to think about what writing really is, and that led to this poem. I think that thsi poem is an accurate representation of what writing truly should be.
