One of my most favorite poets is Ovid. He was born into a prestigious family who expected him to be a lawyer or official. What intrigues me most about him is that he stepped away from all that and write poetry. He was hailed one of the greatest poets of his generation. What’s wild is even with his popularity as a writer, he exiled by Augustus from the country. No one really knows why he was exiled but his writing remains to this day as powerful works of art.
Choosing to write doesn’t guarantee an easy life, your actions and your thoughts aid to give you a better life but the #writerslife itself brings more life to you and those around you.
