PROMPT: My December Writing Competition 2018

It's fun at first. When the young blood in your veins gets so excited over what gifts you are to await for in Christmas. Then realising that the gift you have received is your long awaited red remote control car. You smile like the sun and spring up and down on the ground. At first.
This is what the month December brings for many. And, as much as I have hoped that one day I will be like the stereotypical...

I Guess We'll Never See the Sun Explode

PROMPT: We Forget  | GROUP: Global Citizens

Sometimes we forget
    that the Earth
    made us
and not the other way around.

Sometimes we forget
    that we need
    the Earth
and not the other way around.

Sometimes we demand
    respect

when we're not giving it to her.

Sometimes we believe

Why?

FREE WRITING

She sits at her desk and
Worries for her sanity
Why do their opinions matter to me? 
She asks,
For she finds them the reasons for her tasks.

Later on when lying in bed
She said,
Why do I seem to care so much
For other's praise and likes and such
Why do they define how much I matter?
She asks again as she gets sadder

Oh, if only she had a clue,
If only she knew
That God loved...

Who Might I Be?

FREE WRITING

Who am I? The words echo in my brain like a pin dropped in an empty room. They invade my mind like mosquitos slipping into the cracks, leaning me wondering how they even got there. They pillage my thoughts leaving a trail of mental fire and doubt in their wake. They strain my sanity, like the moments right before finals, where you’re even cramming while you’re walking to the classroom. They strangle my happiness, letting it breathe only for a few blissful moments. They haunt...

An Australian Christmas

PROMPT: My December Writing Competition 2018

My family immigrated to Australia two years ago, and December is the month which marks the two year anniversary of our migration. It was fairly obvious that migration would bring significant changes in lifestyle but, even after two years, my family still cannot get used to the blistering blanket of heat enveloping the Southern Hemisphere during December. The December I encountered two years ago gave me the courage to do what I believed, even if no one else in the...

It Takes Effort

FREE WRITING

It was my queue to head up the stage. I could tell by the surrounding expressions that my nervous feelings had shown. I slowly and steadily trotted up the stairs, doing my best impression of confidence. I looked at my script.

“Good evening all. As you know, I am Piper,” I spoke, sweat dripping down from my red, hot face. “And I am here to discuss what lies ahead of us. War. We must conquer the challenges we were born...

    I stared at them, watching in amusement as they held their heads in their hands. My phone was in front of them, on the table. A shockproof case with a galaxy pop socket fit square in the center of the rectangular device. The rubber on the sides of my phone case was tattered, all those months spent scratching at the sides, so the elevated button on the case for the power button was invisible.

Alive

FREE WRITING

I've been holding my breath too long
waiting for things that'll never come
I've been going down the same roads before
where I crash, burn, and start once more
The secrets that keep me up at night 
are slowly draining my will to fight

So I think it's time to stop second-guessing myself
And start dusting off my battle armor on the shelf

I'm learning how to let go
of the regrets that dragged me down low
For the first...

years' worth of misery

no photos or portraits,
no memory of him

The Last Step

PROMPT: Walking

His sagging, slow, steps echoed through the empty alley. Anybody watching could tell that he was upset, but you wouldn't know his true intentions unless you paid close attention. His head hanging, as if he was ashamed, his feet shuffling along the pavement, without a reason to lift off the ground. He looked like a man that had just seen hell. Despite the walk, nobody knew that those would be his last steps.

Maybe Things were Better Before

Maybe things were better before.
When the Sun and Planets orbited us,
when stars were glimmering jewels in the sky
and not flaming giants,
when the world was flat
and the sky was open,
when our own realities were enough for us.

Maybe we were happier
before we could think,
when we knew that Earth was flat
without knowing it,
when it came as easily as breathing.

Back then,
we hunted and built
and planted and ran,
and our worlds...

There are only two things that are truly beautiful- the sunset, and pie. 

Ten years ago, in the faraway land of Torch Lake Michigan, where the sun shimmers on the lake, creating illusions of lost loved ones through burning light, a tradition was held. 
Bubbling laughter was said to be heard over the lake, casting a glow like the setting sun, as we got ready for our first Poetry and Pie. 
Chairs were wrapped around a burning bonfire and the...
