He lived a life strapped with tubes winding around his nose and mouth, unmoving with eyes shut, and with the continuously humming box breathing life into him.

Globalization and Generalization

PROMPT: Your Voice: Globalization

    I can't say anything without making generalizations. Which I hate. I know that there is always an exception when it comes to groups of people. However as a community starts to get larger and more diverse this is exactly what happens. The larger a population the more the individual and ethics get lost.
    Now, I am not saying that a global community is an issue. A global community allows for extra support during times of hardships,...

The Hole in the Sky

FREE WRITING

A hole opened up in the sky while I sat in my car tapping my feet. The back seat smelled like Cheerios and half-eaten McDonald's fries, both sitting in the empty seat across from me where my brother should sit. The empty seat in front of me where my sister was. I look up at the driver's seat, and the person driving has no face. 
This must be another one of my dreams.

No Rest for the Weary

FREE WRITING

Is it always going to be like this,
Forever and always
And 'til forevermore?

When everyone tries so hard 
Does their best
But the Universe keeps on giving more?
No rest for the weary

What can we do?
What can we say?
When there is no full stop
No way to say no

We do what we always do
The normalcy, it helps us
But this turns even the tiniest bit of change
Into an unsolvable problem we always have

PROMPT: Open Prompt

When the lunch bell rang, a sound that was on the deeper side of shrill, Sarina walked into the cafeteria in her wet shoes, her head slightly lowered so she could hide behind her hair. She'd brought a lunch, just a sandwich and an orange, so she wouldn't have to feel the eyes of others on her as she went up to the counter. 

To Sarina's dismay, all the tables were taken up but one, meaning she would have to...

The White Door

PROMPT: Omniscient Lens

Crouching atop the roof of a building, he surveyed the area. There was no one to be seen. Behind him, two others crouched, shrouded in black, melting into the night. There was no one to be seen, no one to see them. But then again, there never was. They remained in silence for a few moments, listening to the sounds of the night. The sounds of far-off cars, the chirping of crickets, the occasional clang of the pipes in the building...

Life is a blur. One day it's going great, but the other it comes crashing down. There's no certainty in what's going to happen next, only oblivion. I've forgotten so many things that have happened to me in the past 16 years of my life, and it saddens me. Why can't I remember? Why can't I grasp each precious memory in my soul until it burns an imprint? I look back at photos of my past and realize that everything...

The softness and lightness of the clouds that hugged her body was the most comforting and she never wanted to get out of this paradise. Her body was tired beyond belief, it was something deep in her that craved the rest and sleep. She pulled the comforter tighter around her. That’s why they call it a comforter. hah. She thought, sleepily, smiling to herself. She adjusted to sleeping on her side, the comforter pulled over her head as she slipped...

    There have been studies that say that staring into someone's eyes for an extended period of time can make you fall in love with them. While I don’t know if that is true, I doknow that I certainly feel something when I stare into your eyes. And as we have danced together over the years I have had many opportunities to do just that.
