the writers [the world changers] || Grace Anne



a writer does not write
because they want to


a writer writes
because they have to


a writer is a world
trapped inside of a human body.
they bleed stories
it’s not something they can help;
they’re born that way


a writer can make a trip to the grocery store
into a glorious adventure
a walk down the block
suddenly becomes a journey


oftentimes people are confused by writers
they don’t understand


how can they, when the writer can’t even understand
themself?


how can they understand why you suddenly awake in the middle of the night
and are found slumped over the kitchen table the next day
exhausted
but happy
because you finally found the perfect sentence


how can they understand
the way the words become a part of you
pumping through your veins


they can’t


and that’s okay


because maybe writer aren’t meant
to be understood


maybe they are just meant
to be
loved


just the way that they are


the way that their hair is always messy
and the way that they laugh a little too loud
the way that their eyes glaze over
when they’ve become lost in their own world
and the way that they feel
more deeply than you can comprehend


and that’s okay


they are the creatives
they are the world changers
don’t try to change them
let them change the world
let them be their strange
quirky
unique selves


because it’s okay
