Why I write…

     Writing is escapism,writing is therapy,writing is healing,writing is release.Over the years it has become more and more difficult for me to face my past and even talk about it.Everything I say is either on the surface or related to someone else.I hardly like talking about my teenage years or refugee days,because I find it really hard to TALK about it…but when I write,put that pen on paper or fingers on the keyboard,I feel safer,I don’t feel judged,I don’t sense sympathy or pity or hostility.I can’t read people’s emotions while I write…I just let go,and that is when I truly become myself.Writing is my way of reaching down into the depths of my soul and baring myself out…to me.That is why I write.
