Why did you decide to sing and create songs?

i wouldn't say it was a decision. i had always loved singing and was always drawn to music growing up. about halfway through high school, the need to sing hit me harder than ever, and luckily i found an old guitar under out piano not long after i'd become addicted to singing along to karaoke tracks alone in my room (yikes). so i locked myself away in my room, taught myself guitar, and after a month i wrote my first song. very unintentionally... like most songs i write. they just hit me and flow through me over the course of a couple hours. i think my songwriting stemmed from an inability in real life to say all the things i wanted to.
