Follow the dog.

Walk a beat faster, it’s all

about to pop. Dance lessons with

my destiny or at least the one that I’ve

made up. Be careful of the diamonds you

share, they might turn into coal. It’s not

what we wanted, and yet we blindly

follow. A dog chased by billions.

Hoards of us pretending.

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.

  2. Well written, if you see this comment I just want to say as an avid reader of your poems I’d like to extend the invitation for you to be a part of my interview series with writers I conduct on WordPress. My series is called “Voices behind the words” and I do this to give us exposure to spread our content all throughout WordPress. Check out my page for latest ones which get tons of views and comments. Peace
