FREE WRITING

Lets lay here together hand in hand, under a sky that twinkles with the memories we made, watching our thoughts go by. Lets watch them fall like autumn leaves and pile up around us, making a collage of summer memories. Lets make the bare trees bloom like cherry blossoms in the spring with new memories we made from sitting under the jacarandas, poking each other with fairy fingers, letting our laughter lighten the muggy air, and the dances we performed...

The Results

FREE WRITING

Our brains are just grenades 
A countdown into the inevitable
Trip the trigger 
Do it, I dare you 
The result is uncanny 
To anything you've ever seen before
Sometimes we explode
Implode - collapsing into our selves
Sometimes we fall in love 
Blasted, blasted love

"Mom?" I peaked out of my room, my mommy didn't wake me up for school like she always did. She made me worry. I crept out of the room. "Mommy?" my voice growing increasingly frantic alerted her to my worry.

"Good morning." My mother greeted, she wiped her sleepy eyes. They were very red and showed her tiredness. This happened often. She sniffed and it sounded like when I had a cold for those days two weeks ago.

Transcending the boundaries of words

FREE WRITING

What is in a word,
A w?
An o or an r
Is a word a sound,
Is a word some ink on a paper,
A symbol of something,
A symbol of nothing?
Does it have meaning ,
Or do we give it one? 
Do words connect like lego pieces,
Or stack up on each other like pages in a book?
Do we write words or do we draw them?
Is there an answer...

Breath

FREE WRITING

Sing with the words you speak and let the air catch your falling fear
Cry with the tears that love you before they leave too, and let the air catch them
See with eyes that give volumes to those that can't see and let the air blow away the fog
Feel the warmth that's around you and give it to the air to live with the cold
Fall with the air to catch you and fly

Lesson 1

PROMPT: Open Prompt

Life teaches valuable lessons.
Lesson 1:
Beauty
Beauty is subjective.
A girl with scene hair can be beautiful to some, but others may prefer a curly haired brunette.
Beauty is unique.
The truth is we're all different.
So why is it we try so hard to be the photoshopped model on the magazine.
Follow trends because it’s easier to get lost in the crowd than to stand out and face the judgement that might follow.
