I write to escape.
I write because when I put pen to paper i can deal with all my prblems.
I write so I can express myself.
I write so that maybe others will understand.
I write for memories.
I write for records.
I write for love, and loss, and peace.
I write so I can leave it all, if just for a second, an hour an afternoon, I can be away and alone.
I write for me.
Why do you write?

Great poem. It shouldve been in the magazine, but there was another one called Why I write. It was a haiku

I really understand that. Most of the reasons you love to write, I love to read. If I can watch a daring swordfight or tasting the feast at Redwall Abbey or watching the Fool charm society to his every will come alive before my eyes, I'm not thinking of the chaos in my life. So in other words, that is why I write too.

I have a great appreciation for why you write. I write for the same reasons. Thanks you for sharing.
