“writing is a tool. it’s powerful.
writing is the screwdriver that gives the nail security,
it’s the rock that stands firm during a storm. words hurt.
even writing simple words can invoke an ache you didn’t know existed,
a hidden pain that was trying its best to stay packed far, far away.
writing is healing. it’s hard.
pain is an abuser. it is an addict on harsh detox, and
we are the ones that must try to contain it.
writing is the locked door that separates us from pain.
by writing, we release our pain and heal,
locking the door to the abuser until they are pure.
writing is a savior.”
