(To Write) is to Feel

To Write is to Feel Image

Damaged.

That’s how I feel when I write misery, unhappiness, and anxiousness.

I write how I feel.

  • I don’t compress it.
  • I don’t deny it.
  • I don’t hide it.

I feel broken when I can’t write any happy thoughts.

But what choice do I have?

Stop.

I can’t.

If I stop the horrors, I struggle with will strangle me.

I’ll have to keep writing whatever the hell I feel.

I’m imperfect, vulnerable, and afraid.

But that doesn’t change the truth that I’m also brave, worthy of love, and belonging.

What I feel.

I write.
