‘If you can’t help me stand, so be
it.’ And if I do, what then? I promise you’ll
discover the end of the next sentence if you try and
finish the one before it. It’ll pierce through your skin and
breathe with your permission. An extension that’s existed
long before your mother had found out that she was
pregnant. Let it live. Suffocate helplessness.

Over the years Eyes + Words has turned into a wonderful budding family of over fifteen thousand people across all platforms. It’s surreal and humbling to know that the art of poetry and story is alive and thriving. That being said, I hope that the creation of the Eyes + Words Writers Group serves as a vehicle and launch pad to help and support writers and the aspiring ones to keep manifesting words that many out there are searching for everyday. So go on and contribute, lets elevate together. Everyone is encouraged to share their experiences with anything involving writing.
