Why I Write by Latanya Jamison


Writing gives me a voice in a world where I’m

Hardwired to be silent by the oppressors of my society

Yearning to be free from the constraints I was born in

I write to liberate myself for all the world to see

Writing give me freedom in a world where my civil

Rights are up for debate while other get theirs freely

I write because it gives me control over how my story is

Told to the next generation of writing voices

Every time I write the more I become the voice the world needs
