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.

    Mmmmmm……. There is not such a thing as a promise. When somebody says “I promise” they usually break them.

    A promise is a person giving wait to a statement. Their character used as currency to back an investment. Each promise can only be judged by that character, making unreliable promises worth ten definite promises if they come through in the end. A promise is a wish we ask of ourselves.
