She's Trying, Pt. III

FREE WRITING

She has her face buried in her hands, crying.
You don’t know why, yet you still comfort her.
Her sobs are ugly, but you don’t really mind.
“It’ll be okay,” you whisper to her, gently.
She continues, almost as if she didn’t hear you
Do words really speak louder than actions?
Or do actions impact more than words?
Because as soon as she felt your touch,
Her tears began to dry.

Staring at the remains
of smoldering words that were once
fresh out the pan
the oil spitting at you
as if you were some sort of gummed pavement
crackles of punctuation peppered round the tape markings

Setting in stone.
warping into memories
collapsing into another relapse, a replay
of a vicious dance around your vision
blunt means to say sharp words

ashes blowing away
could it be your body? or feelings?

an eternal blue
that even the whitest white cannot...

La Isla Bonita

FREE WRITING

A long time ago, Madonna sang about a place called “La Isla Bonita.” Ever since, I’ve been wondering what “the beautiful island” looked like. Frankly, I picture it to be an ideal place, where the summer breeze flows oh so lovely. The kind of place you only see in movies, with clear skies and turquoise water.  

However, when it comes of La Isla Bonita, there is a catch. Everything seems to be too perfect to be true. One might...

Growing up in America sometimes disgusts me. Yes, I realize the privileges and the freedom I have, but answer this for me:
Why are my peers and I taught how to defend ourselves against an active shooter daily? Why are we having drills, where we barricade our doors and get ready to jump out of windows? Why are we taught that we should throw our laptops at a gunman to give our classmates more time to run?
