I have stumbled across a new passion: writing. It is proving to be insightful and rewarding.

Old Newspapers

Seeking to engage in a lifelong kinship with alphabet and vocabulary,
To form a lasting relationship with letters, words, and phrases.
Will provide blank spaces and blank pages for the written word.
Paper, pencils, and pens are available to freely express one’s self.

Create creative writing.
Be explicit.
Express your bare soul in front of the forming paragraph.
(Don’t be embarrassed)

The light will still shine just as brightly as the words living there.
Do you see them?
It is the same light.
What words are forming?

Where will you place them, in the front of the sentence or in the back of the paragraph? Don’t be afraid to show your vulnerability in front of others.
You don’t care what they see.
You are confident!
You are not afraid, either.
You’re bold.

Don’t become overwhelmed and don’t lose it now.
You’ve come a long way and you are that strong.
You have amazing grace hidden within your heart.
Seek it with the strength that you are.

A motivational message in your poem. As Barbara Kingsolver said,“Close the door. Write with no one looking over your shoulder. Don’t try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It’s the one and only thing you have to offer.”

It’s always better to write what you can’t say. Lucky are the writers, We make the world listen, what they don’t want to know.

I enjoyed! Thanks for sharing

Writing takes on all kinds of guises. Despite the reasons, it can offer enjoyment, therapeutic value, and even, if lucky, monetary rewards. Your post sounds like a good pep talk!
