Just let the words spill out from your brain into your hands
onto your pens and pencils and keyboard, into finger paint
messes and raw letters that spell out angry or happy
or excited or sad or whatever you want to call that feeling that
pulsates with you heartbeat and thaws your brain. Just write
whatever comes to your mind – don’t mind that it could be
written by a first grader, or that it makes zero sense to anyone
other than yourself – and just give your thoughts a fighting chance
to live and to breathe and to inspire and to impact.
Just write, read over, and (re)write some more.
