Shobana Gomes is an excellent poetess and writer. Her writing speaks volumes of her talent and her insightful observations of life. There’s much love and wisdom in her words.
I WRITE BECAUSE…
This was the theme of Simply Shobana’s Poetry Contest.
For any writer or poet, it’s a question that makes one dive beneath layers of skin, muscle, thought, emotion, and hurt.
Ah HURT! It’s a painful word but the driving force behind many creative endeavors.
How can one deny this wondrous fact?
And diving at the opportunity, I submitted my words, a poem, on why I write and what the craft of writing means to me.
The winners were announced today, and I am overjoyed to share that I am one of them.
It’s a great feeling to express, but even a better feeling to impress.
HAHA! Writers can be snooty.
My poem is titled – I WRITE TO BE.
