Making it more complicated than it has to be. Maybe

we need it that way. To exist in a place that wrecks our breathing.

To celebrate the wickedness our minds create. It hurts to try and even

more so when we think about quitting. Faces. Faces that don’t care

about anything. Faces. Faces that live within surrendering.

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.

  6. It reminds me of the adage, “Just because you’re paranoid, doesn’t mean we aren’t out to get you.”

  8. We make it complicated then cry difficulty to justify quitting. The false premise is that there is no value in simplicity giving birth to expansion.
