I’m not a good writer

but I write anyways.


My grammar is loose

and sometimes (often)

I? use — punctuation; wrong.


Sometimes my words are jumbled

and the order wrong.


(I speak two languages

so naturally

I speak neither well)


I break rules

as a small act of freedom.

As if breaking the rules of communication

is my bravest rebellion against the world.


We all start somewhere, right?


I write

to share my stories

because I am too afraid

to share them in person.


In writing,

you get to choose

when to listen

when to exit.


I am not embarrassed

if you choose to click away this precise moment.


I write because I want to be heard.

    Punctuation...and grammar rules are chains to make all writers the same. Break the chains.
