I choose to write because it is the only way I can remember the previous day.
Have you ever woken up one morning not knowing what happened the day before? What exactly you were feeling and why you were feeling that way. I have. I have tried to recap on my life but it sometimes gets the best of me and I forget all the things that I should cherish. I started writing in diaries to keep what was happening fresh in my mind. Everytime I would read them over again, it seemed unreal. As if my life was one big story.
I started adding fantasy writes to what was actually happening to me which makes my poems more personal. Every single poem that I write is about me in some way. A feeling that I might be having or a day that I decided to spice up. It makes my life a little more interesting.
