Written by Jacob Ibrag

That’s what it seems like. Rose

colored glasses to cover your wet eyes.

Holding them back, the words you promised

to keep. ‘Does this get better? Are we bound to

repeat?’ That’s what it seems like. More of the

same. Abandon silence or live by the chain.

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.

    Great structure – made it difficult to read at times, which fit well with the challenging questions and thoughts in the poem. Great work!
