Jeremy Brown 1989 (Wyoming)


“Some people think that words are just adjectives, pronouns and verbs. You should choose them wisely and precisely. People may cling to them tightly. Your expressions can have the most devastating impact. You don’t know what the person will say or how they’ll react. You might not even be able to apologize or take them back.

Saying the wrong things can slit a persons throat like a knife. I must admit, I’m no angel and I’m guilty of doing this. Be careful of what you say or quote. Phrases could possibly invoke feelings of hatred. Paradoxically, even if you mean the world to a person, you can become dead to them. So count to ten and relax before you say something you can not retract.”

I’m from Casper, Wyoming and I started to write to help myself through alcoholism, depression, anxiety and anger. I found it to be a very healthy outlet to alleviate my emotions and thoughts. Plus it turned into a fun hobby. I couldn’t keep bottling everything up anymore because I felt like I was going to snap. Once I started to write I wanted to write about what I was going through and dealing with in my life in a poetic/lyrical way if you will. I hope my writings help provide people with hope and to let them know they’re not alone when it comes to these issues. I also hope my writings inspire someone else to get sober or write. If I can touch or make a difference in someone’s life I would be extremely humbled and thrilled. more…
