Roads
Road to the left, road

Winning Submission:

Why I write, you ask?
I write for me;
to find my deepest thoughts,

# Why I write?
I write for therapy,
to thank the unknown for what I got.

Occasionally I write to hate on Trump,
or the next white aged man who tells me what
to do
with my body and my uterus.
