Without a Platform, Words Will be Forgotten
When you’re a writer, and you’re driven by an unseen force and an unexplainable desire to write, then the words often emerge fluently on the page as an extension of your subconscious, and something that never existed before somehow manifests itself into an entire world of complex imagery and interpretations. You relish in the idea that you created something out of thin air, and feel proud that the blank page or the blinking cursor didn’t stop you from writing something remarkable. You write line by line, verse by verse, poem by poem, and eventually, you complete a whole book of unique stories, filled to the brim with emotions and metaphors, ideas and images, insights and wisdom, and even have the passing thought that you’re the first person to ponder such intense feelings. Your family reads the words intently and always let you know that they’re proud of you for creating something special. You read them aloud on stage and send a few lucky ones off to be published, but on the page, they will stay unread and dormant.
