‘Didn’t ask to be here.’ And yet

there it is, a being living. Souls out to discover

their setting and experience anything that comes within

vicinity. Constructing what it means to make meaning, building

a box to be within. Limiting because souls live in vessels and they

are used to constraint. Space excites and intimidates. ‘I think.

I know that I’m okay with this.’ Defining and settling.

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.

  4. Nice piece! Just wanted to point out that ‘constraint’ is a noun; I think you meant to use ‘constrain’ which is the verb form. I could be wrong though…let me know!
