Writing is Faith

If faith is all I have
Then my writing
Is my faith, my hope,
My strength. I write
Because I don’t have
Anything else. Just lines
And half rhymes. I’m a
Restless soul wrestling
With how to be whole
While staying so broken
Because I like the pain
Of being open, the way
My shattered vessels
Take up more space
And bleed out more love
Than if I were perfectly
Composed. There is a joy
In imperfection that
Not everyone knows.


About thefreescribbler

My life is one of words. I am a scribbler, whose thoughts are best expressed through adjectives and phrases and punctuation marks. I would not go so far as to call myself a writer, although many would disagree. I’m characterized more by my unfinished works and half-embodied ideas, scraps of stories and parts of poems. Maybe one day I’ll be a writer, but I’m okay with being a scribbler right now. It fits my personality and style, and best expresses my aims. I’m not trying to create some lofty version of literature. I’m just a kid blogging about life. View all posts by thefreescribbler
