“I WRITE BECAUSE...”
--by T. Scott McLeod

I write because of the fragility of our existence.

I write because it's my answer to impermanence.

I write because it helps me stay connected to my heart.

I write because we’re all different, and so much the same.

I write because the world needs more tenderness.

I write because I'm tired of secrets.

I write because it’s my path to redemption.

I write because I've forsaken those that I love.

I write because I want to know myself.

I write because I want to know you.

I write because I'm drawn towards things I shouldn't do.

I write because every flower is meant to bloom.

I write because life is full of paradoxes.

I write because I’ve had to leave friends behind.

I write because it's my form of prayer.

I write because, when I write, I lose track of time.

I write because I've walked dark streets looking for love.

I write because of the way the sublime slips away from words.

I write because of the twice shy part of once burned.

I write because it helps me learn.

I write because there are plenty of people who have written, famous well-published people, literary figures, literary giants, and I didn't like what they wrote.

I write because I'm always telling myself stories anyhow.

I write because I don't know all of the reasons I write.

I write for you.

I write. I write. I write.
