Ever since the beginning of time, writing has always been one of the best forms of expression. Our early ancestors did it in many ways and places; hieroglyphics, drawings, and markings all over the world are the perfect example of that. But, why is it that we express ourselves this way? Who do we write for?
To be honest, I don’t have the specific answers to that, as they vary from person to person and time to time. I do, however, know that a majority of people, write to express themselves in diaries, blogs and other places such as social media. But why? From personal experience, I write because it helps me see things from other perspectives. It lets me vent out, and not feel like a balloon, filling up with “air” until it explodes. Many people do it, even if no one ever reads it. It just has a way of making you feel calm. You got it out of your system, you can maybe find solutions that you didn’t see before, etc. It is highly recommended that we all have some form of self expression, a hobby, art, writing, dying your hair, tattooing yourself, whatever it is that makes you feel that you are ok, that’s what makes you YOU. 💁🏻♀️
So, without further ado, I present to you the main piece of this post, “A Pawn’s Price”. Written by an anonymous reader, who we’ll name Josh, out of respect for their privacy.
A pawn’s price
I’m maybe a pawn in this chess game we call life; my duty is to help others. Even if I’m the greatest at my job, I don’t taste the victory. But then again, my queen, if I can survive the struggle of this battle I can become whatever I want. A Shining knight, a hard rook, a wise bishop! I can even become royalty, if I want. Because I’ve been in battle and found a way to die as a pawn and be re-born as a new piece that has learned what the price of hard work is, risks and luck. My price may seem worthless now, but my hard work will pay off, and I’m going to be the key to victory. Don’t underestimate me. My price and my abilities are not what you think. I will find a way… for you darling, I’ll be, the best I can.
We can all relate to the writer and his feelings. It is a very powerful piece, spoken like a true champion at life! Thank you, Josh, for your submission and we hope it will not be your last one here on our blog.
Remember, if you ever feel like you’ve reached rock bottom, and can’t seem to find a way out, there’s always someone out there willing to listen. And if you don’t feel like talking to anyone, write your feelings away! Write until the tears go away, until you feel you can breathe again. Crying is not weakness, it simply means you are human and need to vent.
That’s it for today’s post, I really do hope you enjoyed it. Please share and subscribe so we can keep growing and sharing ours and your stories too!
