I do not write to tell the world that I am better than it is,
I do not write to say that I am the best,
I do not write to inspire my self-esteem,
Nor to express my opinions.
I write to tell my friends that they are the most important things in my life,
I write to tell the water that it inspired my words,
I write to say that the fire fueled my hand,
To tell the air it is the breath of my essence,
That the earth is my roots and my strength.
I write because it is who I am,
And that if I did not write,
There would never be an "I" at all.
