Written by Jacob Ibrag
Promise. ‘You’ll disappear in the red desert in the sky if
you break your word and spread my wildfire.’ Promise. ‘We’re made
up characters in your mind, playing parts you’re too afraid to try.’ Promise.
‘And when we expire, so goes you’re name. Wildfire spread through wilderness
and you’re nowhere to be seen.’ Promise. ‘Days forgetting weeks forgetting to
believe in presently.’ Promise. ‘Keep listening.’ Promise. ‘Please turn tape.’

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.
