Daydreaming and procrastinating more than is healthy.

Writer's block and sleep deprivation are my constant companions.

Feedback really helps, people. Be brutally honest, please.

Reviews are greatly appreciated, but if they don't offer any criticism, they're not much use.

For—

The farmer in Fiji, who lost his crops, his income, his livelihood, because of the seawater creeping up to his farm, destroying all the crops;

The child in Yemen, with his skin stretched tight over his bones, the drought worsening the war already ravaging his country;

The woman in Kiribati, who doesn't even know of the rising seas threatening to consume her, along with her whole country;

The child in Manila, who lost his home and his parents to the flooding that tore through his city;

The girl in Delhi who lost her father to the poison from the vehicles and the factories eating up his lungs, taking his life from inside him—

For them and for ourselves, we must change.

    Thank you for entering! One thing, my comp was actually closed when you entered. The date was the 15th of April, 11:59 AEST, and this was shared several hours after that. But, since I don't have a huge amount of people entering, I'll let you :D I like this, very inspirational!
