-when you come to the edge of all the light you have, and are about to step off into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing one of two things will happen; 1. there will be solid ground for you to stand on, or 2. you will be taught how to fly


Some write to impress. And others to express.
I just write because it’s what I do.
They say “words are like weapons.” And I do agree.
But I usually lay down arms, and write, carefree.
Unless my words have to be weapons,
In which I pack them with metaphors, idioms, and rhymes.
Those are, I find, strong armaments in worded, warring, times.
But in more preferable occasions, of peaceable nature,
I find words to be like the breath that I breathe.
Serving me, naturally, with gentle, soundless, ease.
Some write to impress. And others to express.
I just write because it’s what I do.
I wonder where my words will take me next.
And I wonder what they’ll do…


The author's comments:
I felt inspired by words, and how lovely they can be. I know that's kind of weird, but I'm kind of a weirdo, so I have no problem with that:)
