Why I journal…

I journal, to keep my sanity.  I wouldn’t dare share the thoughts I write.  I say most of what I think, and never what I feel.  I keep those with me, I place those in print.  Print for my eyes alone.  I reread them years later, I like to see my mental traipsing, most times I cringe.  Sometimes I cry.  Writing makes me feel whole.  Writing is my mirror.  I see not the wrinkles in my hands, my face, my eyes.  I see the deep grooves on the paper from my pen, and I know that I have lived.
