Throwback Friday: I Write by Liyona

I write for something not yet found

I write for I can’t seem to say much of anything

when you are around.

I write to free my thoughts from choking me

from the wave of hurt to crash to harshly

I write because I can construct

I become the engineer

I become the architect

in a few words I transport myself to another place

to another world

I travel farther than my feet have ever gone

But I don’t mind because these words give me freedom

I can curse

I can cry

I can smile

all the while I can place a facade of words

to protect my silly ego

these words will be my wall

and my bridge to understand

I write because without it

I feel lonely

without it I feel slow

as I type my brain races faster and faster

filled with more and more ideas of new

stories that I could create

new galaxies yet to be explored

writing makes me the adventurer that I don’t think I could be

but writing also gives me respite that I don’t think that I could find

write for yourself

write beyond time

and you will find a smile.

I wrote this about 4 years ago and it still rings true!


Liyona is an “average joe” kind of writer who likes to think about ordinary things and then write them down. Ever since she can remember, she has been rhyming words and creating lyric poems. During her college years, she took a more serious bent toward writing and started to post on her blog (The Life and Times of a Quirky Character.) Currently, she resides on the East Coast of the United States just north of the country’s capital.
