Stories unraveling even if you aren’t ready for it to
happen. You can run from the mirror and yet reflections
remain. Reflections chasing every kind of surface. You aren’t
ready to see and witness something that’s always been there. It
isn’t particularly truth, it’s a thought that’s been seeded within you.
Eating at you. Slowly learning it’s alright to scream at you. Inhabiting
each and every second of your existence. And so you run from it, from
what it could mean. Building rocket ships and investing into escape.
But it’s always there, waiting for you to listen. Like a child who
needs attention, and an old book wanting to be held.

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.
