My Selfish Secret- Poem by Sara

I don’t write because
I want to change the world
Or make the comfortable
Feel discomfort
And those uncomfortable
Experience comfort.
No,
I write to benefit
Nobody other than myself.
I write because 
It’s the only thing that keeps
Me safe and sane.
If I weren’t writing this
Right now,
I might be drinking
Or bleeding
Or killing my kidneys with 
Too much lithium.
My writing is
My selfish secret
I’m willing to share.
