Writing my release

2 AM and I'm still awake, writing a song
If I get it all down on paper, it's no longer inside of me,
Threatening the life it belongs to
And I feel like I'm naked in front of the crowd
Cause these words are my diary, screaming out loud
And I know that you'll use them, however you want to

Lyrics from "Just Breathe" by Anna Nalick.  Although I don't write songs, I do write, and this just describes perfectly WHY I write ... just to get everything that inside of me to the outside of me, to relieve the pressure.

  1. Isn't it amazing, Sharon, how writing things down can be such a release? I was having a very, very hard time dealing with the loss of my mom's best friend. Then I wrote about her on my blog and it just made me feel so much better.
