Nothing Is Happening

Written by Jacob Ibrag

The brain signals fight or

flight all while nothing is happening.

Adrenaline swarms into each vein and the

heart panics all while nothing is happening.

It becomes an internal race for survival all

while nothing is happening. Nothing is

happening. Nothing is happening.

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.

  9. Sometimes, the signs are there, warning us, but because we don’t see the immediate consequences or dangers, that is why we ignored those signs, and we end up, paying for that some time later…
