    I write
    Because I cannot sing
    But if I write - the melody will come to Be
    I write
    Because I cannot paint
    But when I write - the painting is sure to be me
    I write
    Because I am sometimes slow of speech
    But when I write - my perspective can be communicated eloquently
    I write
    because it cleanses me
    but when I write – those who read may be cleansed like me
    I write
    to show the world that I am free

    I'm feeling this so strong. I don't speak eloquently...until a pen isin my hand. I can't sing, but my pen doesn't do too bad. :)

    Shaz this is the line that grabbed me:

    but when I write – those who read may be cleansed like me
    I write
    to show the world that I am free
