    i write to release the build up of emotion up inside of me.. i write to better my writing skills, i write because i think writing could actually take me someplace in life, to me right now it seems like the only thing that could take me someplace actually.. i sometimes write kind of manipulating my emotion i dont feel that strong but then turn it into a storm of emotion jus to create a strong piece & in the end i hurt myself cuz of it.. sometimes writing calms me down gives me peace of heart, sometimes it paints a picture of how i feel that cant really be expressed in plain words if i was jus talkin to someone.. i write because when i die thisll be my legacy.. i write because its kind of somethin i had in me a while ago.. i kind of forgot that at age 6-7 i wrote simple poetry or some shit like that (in another language).. so i kind of write cuz it was somethin in me that i felt the need to express.. thats why i write..

    i write for a number of reasons - because i need an outlet for emotions that would otherwise build up inside me till i explode - because i can create worlds of my own (sorta like playing god) with words alone - because i know someone needs to hear something but i don't know how to say it - because some stories need to be told and remembered - there are a thousand reasons i write, but the main reason i write is because someone else might find inspiration in my words and go on to write on their own. it's like giving birth to a writer in a sense lol. i seriously think writign and rapping are forms of art, and a realtively small number of people can reach enormous amounts of others through them. i am rambling on now so i am going to shut up lol. peace

    i write because im emotionally retarded, and dont like to express how i feel to anybody.
    an outlet definitely, keeps me sane.
    cant express how i feel through speech, and in poetry theres a certain safety net........you can say all you need to say without saying it outright, i can hide myself in metaphors. blah!

    exactly as ice and vinous said ^
    plus its alot easier to look at situations and emotions when its written . it's easier than talking ,sometimes there is alot i want to say but but by the time it hits my lips its jumbled up or i'll stutter and ruin it. sometimes i want to be heard without being interupted or questioned to death. it's a way to get other people to see things how i do and help other people to get to know me better and i love reading it too because its raw- even topical poems because they come from somewhere inside the writter and that kind of intimacy is priceless

    that's like asking me "why do I shit". I have no control over it, and sometimes it is both toxic and painful if I don't...

    i think the best poetry isn't from when you vent but from when you have too much love and you put some of it on paper - that's what i do - but i am a hopeless romantic and gentleman (two dying breeds of men) so i have no excuse lol

    I write because without my pen, the wounds would never heal. Its like Slug said, "Angels sing to me in my sleep// I sold my damaged soul for the magic of speech//" Writing is what I live and breath, do it to the fullest, or dont do it at all!

    It beats talking to myself..That's what I used to do. Had no way to express how I felt to anyone

    Then I started writing..it's nice because the paper can't turn away from me or ignore me..It'll always be there.
