By Writer’s in the Grove member Patti Bond inspired by the July 4, 2015, prompt “Because.”

Because I want to achieve
Because I want to change
Because I want to get better
Because I need to
Because I want other people to like me
Because I want to be proud
Because I want to gain respect
Because I am special
Because I want to meet goals
Because I want to be me



  1. Patti, This is a good poem written by you. It does tell your story in a great way. I do think this is something very positive in your life. Keep up the writing. Keep doing good things for yourself. You are a special lady and you deserve happiness and positive things.
