Writing
by: Will

I enjoy writing myself. I've only been writing since the 90's. It's such a way of therapy for me also. I don't share much of my writing, I'm such a private person. I do relate to how it feels like you're leaving the pain on the paper. It does that for me at times and sometimes it's just a way to let me know I'm making it through. I've shared a few of my poems and songs with a very few. I've never shared my journals with anyone. My writings, rather I'm in my journal or writing a piece of poetry or song, is a very big extension of me. I protect and respect every thought put down on paper. One day I hope to become more trusting to share as you have. I believe I'm on my way, just a little, but I'm getting there...Thank you for sharing your experience with writing. May it continue to bless you.
