The Necessary Pursuit

Storytelling… The pursuit of capturing that which cannot be captured, in order to express that which cannot be expressed. How dare I attempt to bottle the essence of emotion like those whom before me could not? Yet, still I try. Rather, I believe expression is a matter of survival, not competition. To refrain would be death in every capacity of the word.

 

Death is the lack of storytelling. The lack of expression.

 

Why have words failed us so terribly that we yearn for other avenues to speak? And why do those avenues fail us still? Is there nothing within a man to aide him in the truest and deepest communication of his Soul?

 

To live is to struggle to express oneself. To die is to stop, and I'd have it no other way.
