Writers are gods by Isaac Somto - The Isaac Somto Foundation

  • Writers are gods by Isaac Somto

    Writers are gods!
    We create worlds with our pen
    We create and write the fate of our characters
    Beauty, riches, ugliness we assign to a character's destiny.
    How we became gods we don't know
    We only know we sing songs with our pen
    Songs louder than talks, but quiet than action.

    As gods, we do not have dominion only on characters we create
    We control emotions of humans with our pen;
    We force tears down the soft cheeks of humans when their eyes have a feast on our stories.
    We resurrect dead men through writings;
    Bringing them back to life and keeping them in the hearts of men.

    We write words that seduces men and women
    Forcing girls to squeeze their legs making the soft thighs kiss the lips in between their legs
    We make the soft rods in between men legs grow fat and strong, decorated by veins.

    The Isaac Somto Foundation accepts works only from/about African writers at home or abroad. Set out to add your voice to the gathering thunder.
