What does it mean to be a writer?
A writer is somebody who dares to think outside of the everyday box of our constructed life.
A writer is someone who goes the extra mile, even if that means experiencing sorrow or suffering in the name of gaining new experiences.
A writer is a fearless soul who isn’t afraid to wander aimlessly throughout the expanse of the world with only a dollar to his name.
Living on the edge of life and death, constantly wondering whether he’ll eat tonight or see a familiar face in the next city he travels to.
Someone who takes a chance and risks what little he owns to become something great, even if it was just to prove to himself that he could get out and survive in the world.
So what is a writer?
Well, you and I are writers. We live and breathe our life story even in the whispers of the corridors, cubicles, aisles of stocked food, and endless rows of merchandise.
We are the unheard voices that ring out so silently and inaudibly that not even a ghost hears our moment of pristine clarity.
Lights flash in a brilliance of disarray as life passes us like a trace of echoing fates.
But strangely enough, in the wide-sea of darkness and unfamiliar fears, there is always a tiny flickering hope hidden away.
A wise woman once told me that I could find comfort in the most unlikely of places. Believe in yourself. That’s the only way you’ll ever find true happiness in life.
Forever in Your Debt,
