Message from Writer

Just an 18-year-old, lover of books, horses, action movies, Marvel Superheros, travel, and food! Trying to find a name for myself and spread my love of the world to everyone I can. I hope my work inspires you to laugh, love, and most importantly to live life beautifully (even if it's messy:)

We call our ships 'She.' We call our war machines "Women." We compare women to Black Widows and Vipers. And you're going to tell me it's not "lady-like" to scream, to take up space, to fight and demand respect and do whatever the hell I want. You've looked at Nuclear bombs and been so in awe that you could only name them after women. Don't try to down-play my power. -Anonymous

Young Sacrifice

The sky is painted black and grey.
The streets are filled with people screaming. 
As an ancient God throws himself at the shore.
His attack is relentless,
his waves are without mercy. 
Then I see a small girl race out to the beach,
despite the pleas of her mother,
and the warnings of her father. 
She stands barefooted on the murky sand. 
Her white dress billowing gracefully despite the gale winds. 
She faces the growing tsunami wave with her hands on her hips. 
And like the sacrifices of old,
 the ocean wraps its wrathful arms around her and drags her away. 
She does not scream or try to fight,
but instead smiles, 
and spreads her arms wide,
ready to embrace her doom. 
When she has disappered, 
the waves calm. 
The black grey sky gives way to blue.
And the people return to their homes. 
I search the water for her,
but she belongs to the ocean now. 
And just like in ancient times,
it is the youth that save the world for the old.
