“The beginning of love is the will to let those

we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to

twist them to fit our own image. If in loving them we do

not love what they are, but only their potential likeness

to ourselves, then we do not love them: we only love

the reflection of ourselves we find in them”

– Thomas Merton

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.

    This goes with thoughts ive been having on genuine love. We don’t change what we love but some will argue u enhance it. But if u are truly loved as is change isn’t need for the love to grow…this is a great thought provoking piece.
