Why I Write

I don’t think I could’ve said it better myself…

But, I’ll try sometime in the near future:

Thanks, to Dallas Clayton for continuing to inspire me with his art.



I will never cure cancer
not with the schooling I’ve had
and my lack of focus
and because I don’t really even know what cancer is
or how it works.
So the best I can do
is to write some things down-
some words, some pictures-
in hopes that they will inspire a stranger
sitting alone
in a laboratory
in the dark of night
to move a microscope
two clicks in an unfamiliar direction
two clicks toward a discovery
that might forever change the world
and cure me
of ever having to worry
about knowing
anything about cancer.
