Someone once asked me; "Bianca, why do you write?"
On hearing that, my lips arched with a flashed smile and I replied with complete honesty.
"Ever saw something so wrong but couldn't change it?
Ever felt something so cosmic and wanted humans to hear it?
Well, that's why I write.
I write so that I could make my contributions to Earth, to ease the situations I cannot change; situations beyond my human power.
I write so that those cosmic floods of thoughts could be heard; to give them life.
But most importantly,
I write to build myself; to heal myself
To let out my emotions and get control of them.
I write to discover myself.
To know how deep my demons lie; to find my strength and weakness.
I write to find peace.
For whenever I hold a pen to a paper, my soul reaches the altitudinous peak of complete tranquility."
