I BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF WORDS.
Words can be used to lift up or hurt, pacify or anger, remembered eternally, or easily forgotten. The liaison between our internal and external lives, words transcend space and settle on our emotions.
Creative writing is my canvas, my voice adds the color. Before writing, I denied a childhood of abuse and neglect, unknowingly protecting the forces that made me small. Truth was the fissure that broke me open and allowed my powers to shine. Humanity is united in pain, eternally bound by shame and guilt unless we commit to making a change. Writing is my sanctuary. We are all wounded, but freedom lies on the other side of pain, where art and voice collide.
Wednesday Wisdom is a (mostly) weekly post of thoughts on empowerment and life.
