Re:imagining Paper to Build Better Walls

A single sheet of paper
250 words gifted from a creator
Sparkled with magic by an illustrator

Stories shared from across the Earth
Seeds of knowledge and insights birth
Shining a light on every child’s worth

All deserve a chance to learn and read
More than a want, it’s a basic need
Limitless potential to be freed

When world wisdom is spoken
Imagination past survival awoken
Generational cycles broken

Walls that words can break
A single sheet of paper is all it takes

A better world is what it creates

About a year ago, Sanjukt Saha reached out to me and other writers on Medium to write one of these magical books.

I was still very much finding my confidence in sharing my writing on Medium so I hesitated.

Those feelings of “not good enough- yet” were there.

It was the spirit of the cause that drove me to take part and write something.

When I read my words now- well I cringe a little BUT it was where I was at the time AND it led me to magic.

A world of hope.

Hope that the world can change through words.

Honoured to play a little role to plant seeds of change with WallOBooks.
