Why Do I Write ~ Dara Wier
I write to keep mortality in check. I write because all the poets before us wrote and lent us their genius and showed us ways to write with abandon. Because making up something whether it be the shape of a poem or content there in amazes. I write because there's nothing better to do. And I mean nothing. Because writing renders one unselfconscious, a state to prefer, to be lost in writing's miraculous ways. Because it's preferable to be lost in writing.
