The Rise

Written by Jacob Ibrag

Thirsty, I liquor up before a battle with a

crowd. Roaring obscenities, making nostalgic love with

themselves. And after they finish, they’ll wipe their mouths. Vocals

shattered and bodies worn out. I’m found climbing a mountain, knee high

in snow. Not wearing a jacket and yet I’m warm to the bone. Should be quiet

in a place like this. Inner revelation and a courting of pieces. Inner voices

ignoring the cliches. The rise and its eventually. Here, everywhere.

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.

    This is so powerful. It reminds me of a movie but I do not remember the name of it. Phenomenal words, keep on sharing them with all of us. Stay awesome.

  4. I got a visual, in my mind, of a crowd on top of Cadillac Mountain, in Acadia National Park, Maine, making a racket, whilst there to “watch the sunrise”.
