Writerly Thinz: Words Of The Day



The world to stop is all I desire

A breath

To take to stay alive

Other times

The world to stop is what I want

My breath

To take to ever stay still. – Walter Uchenna Ude, @Walt_Shakes

    Wow Walter, this is an amazing piece of writing. The ‘uncanny’ way you have with words shines through. This is deep.
