Why Writing?

Poem By Samiha Issacs

As I sit blankly in class glaring amongst the rows and seats in front of me,
the teacher blabbing pointless continuations of words, I can only think of
one thing. In all the years I’v had to ponder and discover my ways of

thinking, I never thought this was who I am, who I’m supposed to become;
a writer, allowing myself to sit and form words within my mind as I feel I
have something to tell people. Maybe they aren’t interested in what I have

to say. Or perhaps they know my thoughts might mean something to
them, something that they are able to relate to. I myself love to write. I
have prepared myself from simple poetry as an average emotional teen,
then slowly progressing to a determined writer.

Dark clouds, soft mist. Easy breeze, light drizzle. Sun peaks through endless

trees beyond sight. The feel of soft grass between toes. The light smell of rain

Let Innocence Be Revealed: Trailer Park Memories

My heart cried out in stubborn infatuation,
Lust surrounded my inpatient mind.
I wanted him near me,
Can I ever be free?
