I write because…

In the blog, The Ninth Life, she was asked, “Why do you write?” I was amazed at her honesty and her testimony. It was very INSPIRATIONAL. I am glad she writes and decides to share her thoughts, insecurities, honesty, and her emotions with us.  I write because for so long, I had no voice.  I was so shy that I didn’t talk much. I didn’t talk much because for a girl, I have such a deep voice, not manly, but very brash for a young lady.  I was laughed at for the way I sounded.  It was very uncomfortable. I cannot camouflage my voice for anything.

As long as I can remember, I have been writing.  In the 8th grade, we had to keep a journal and we had to write short stories, haiku’s, sonnets, and essays, I was thrilled.  It was not a problem for me to write.  I lost all of my writings in 1994, due to a flood.  It was a devastating time. I will talk about this at a later time.

On a daily basis, there are thoughts and titles running through my mind and I am not able to pen all of them down, but I try. I keep my journal with me and sometimes at work, I write. I write to keep my voice, to show my emotions to all who may not hear or feel my heart. I write because it is therapy, it is soothing.  I write because I CAN!

  1. Not a day goes by where I’ve either read or written or both. On the whole, both! It is like breathing – putting your thoughts, inspired feelings or emotions or just observations, down in words or poetry.
    As for your voice, think of these beautiful ladies: Marlene Deitrich (seen her in the old-time movies) and her songs; Macy Gray; Lauren Bacall; Kathleen Turner; Angelina Jolie et al. Their voices (some husky) are considered sexy – so there you go, you’re in a league with these ladies. 👏🏻🆒
