Arts & Culture


I want to write. Pour words onto paper. Fill up pages. Run out of lead.

I want to sing. Pour out my heart. Fill up hours. Run out of breath.

I want to dance. Pour out my energy. Fill up space. Run out of strength.

I want to speak. Pour out my thoughts. Fill up ideas. Run out of words.

But sometimes there’s silence. Sometimes there’s stillness. Sometimes there’s quiet.

I find joy there too.
