Message from Writer

Hey guys! If writing is your life (as is true for me), then you should follow me so you can stay updated with all of my new pieces. I am always seeking positive critique, and am available to peer review for my followers. My favorite genres are apocalyptic and post apocalyptic fiction, fiction, and mystery, horror, and paranormal. If you are seeking peer reviews for any of these genres, I´m your girl! I love to write flash fiction, so if you like to read that, follow me, and stay connected!

how to stand up to Society

My culture is who I am
And who I am has changed so much
When I was a kid, in the 2010s,
What you would hear on the radio were songs about love and dreams
Political affairs were courteous and fair
We could play ball outside without our mothers having to worry
We found safety within our schools and churches
Social media did not invert our view of people
As I got older I learned,
Society can never go back to the way it was
We aren’t truly safe in school
Politics aren’t truly fair
And now everything I say offends someone
Anxiety and depression rates are high
But who would I be if I let that be
The thing that defined me?
Just because things aren’t top notch these days
Just because we’re stressed out due to school
Even though we are pressured to be
A good educated adult?
We can’t let these fears define us
We have to remember the good old days
Of our youth that gets taken away
Spend time with family
Be there for friends
Go to church on Sunday
We can’t let this new form of society bring us down
Instead we must rise up to it and say
“We won’t forget who we are,
We won’t accept racism and mysogyny
We stand for the people we used to be
Surrounded by childish fantasy”
