I Write What I Write - Poem by Collette Anderson Williams

I write
what I write
because someone is hurting
and needs to heal.
I write what I write
because I need to heal!

I write
what I write
because someone is afraid
and needs to build courage.
I write what I write
because I must wear a lion's heart!

I write
what I write
because someone needs to forgive.
I write what I write
because I must forgive...
I must forgive me...and I must forgive you!

I write
what I write
because someone longs to smile.
I write what I write
because I need to smile -
even when my heart is aching!

I write
what I write
because I long to dance;
and I have dreamt the music in my heart.
I write what I write
oh! how I love to dance!

I write
what I write
because someone needs to love
and to be loved.
I write what I write
because I must love...!

I write
what I write
because someone needs to keep holding on
...to take heart...to have hope.
I write what I write
because I am hopeful!

I write
what I write
because someone's story needs to be told.
I write what I write
because no-one else - but I -
can tell my story.

Yes! I will write what I write!
