Poetry

Fighting

Written by Jacob Ibrag

The final divide. Soul and body fighting to stay on the

same side. They aren’t ready to let go, still so much they have yet

to explore. And the promises that they’ve made to themselves and their

family. ‘We are the lines between the lines and the lines between those too.

Memories good and bad playing in between each racing beat per second.

Helplessly watching our father rest his hand upon our existence as

he helplessly prays to give his life to the boy in front of him.’

Hello again, I’ve missed you.


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.
