Why I Write [poem]

I write:
because the page is empty
because my days are full
because he forgot to call
because I met someone new
because I heard my favorite song
because I bought new shoes
because I yelled at my mother
because my mother yelled at me
because my cat curled up just so
because I caught the sunset
because these memories need a record
because my pen carries farther than my voice.
