Why I Write

By Priyanka Panwar

Why I write


I write when the world fails to listen
I write when the self introspects
I write when there are thunderstorms raging within

I write when the list is over
I write when nothing feels right
I write when there is a blur

I write to survive

I write to feel the bounding pulse

I write to make the weathered will withstand the whirlwinds of time
I write and let meaning dissolve in the chaos
I write and fly free in the newly-discovered terrain of self worth
I write and I un-write 

the fears that seize the soul
the promises of coherence 
the ‘I’ that isn’t.
