Many people ask me,
"Why do you write?"
My answers are always the same.

I write because of the feeling when I get a good review.
I write because when I hold a pen and paper I feel unstoppable.
I write because writing is how I vent.
I write because it's my escape route from reality.
I write because if I don't my head will explode from all the ideas in my head.
I write because if I didn't I wouldn't be me.
I write because I love it.

My mom started to get irritated by my head always being in the clouds and my grades dropping. So she tried to take writing from me. I fought back with this poem. She left me alone and now I am on the honor roll. :) how about that mom!
