The Reasons I Write

By: Julie Thompson

I write because sometimes I can’t speak
Of everything going on inside of me
My voice may be silent
But the words are still there
Thoughts racing through my mind
Longing to be shared

I write because words have power
To change someone’s life
To comfort and encourage
To show love and to heal
To help others feel less alone
So hope becomes real

I write because the hardest stories
Are the ones that need to be told
Pain and shame thrive in silence
But our voices were meant to be heard
Freedom and strength are found
When we take a risk and share our words

I write because sometimes I can’t speak
Of everything going on inside of me
But God gives me the words
That bring peace and help me understand
How both brokenness and beauty
Are part of His plan
