I stumbled upon this site a fortnight ago.
I came looking for a contest.
Instead, I found a community.
People were sharing stories that I laughed and cried at.
People were so accepting of each other.
People from all over the world.
People of different races, genders, sexual orientation:
everyone was different But we all shared one thing in common:
we all had a passion for writing.
I wanted to be a part of this community. So I immersed myself.
I am not very confident about my work.
So when my mouse hovered over the publish button,
Who would want to read my writing,
let alone like it?
I had asked myself in horror.
Was I even considering this idea?
I decided to take the jump.
When I came back I found that someone had actually liked my piece!
With the biggest grin on my face
I knew nothing could bring me down.
Not even my angry parents who disregarded everything I did.
It was like walking on a cloud.
It was just the start.
Someone welcomed me onto the site.
Another left a positive comment.
In the end, my heart soared,
it was such a small thing
But it brought me happiness.
Take the jump.
I love this place so much! I think I found something new to obsess over!!!!!!
