FREE WRITING

35
Sitting here,
staring at this
screen is
accomplishing
nothing.

my bed, only a
few
feet away.

i wish i had the
strength
to get
there.

yet here i am,
typing away
and away
and away.

if only i was
going somewhere.

    re: okay, here's the thing. this is a place where only constructive comments should be accepted on pieces. inserting your own opinion may be a little bit insensitive to someone who is only looking for a safe place to voice their differing opinion.
    I'm not saying that you can't. I'm saying that you should be careful.

    Re: Trump obviously is not in it for himself as you suggest, he gave up a life of stress-free luxury to serve our country. He is a hated man, and bears it well. I respect him. How do I sleep at night? how do you? I am a upholder of life, sanctity and honor. I am a freedom fighter, I will never succumb to the evils of today because I Know what our fore-fathers wanted, a Republic! Not socialism. Saying he's racist is, yeah, he is not racist. Look up Officer Tatum and you'll hear him. And the Miami immigrants from Cuba, voted Trump so that proves something.

    I feel the exact same right now—you capture it so perfectly! I'm honestly just praying that God's will be done in the election cause I'm not going to worry about it anymore.

    same. in the australian classroom all the screens are red and blue. and its all i can think about. the world is at stake. jeez i don't even know if that was what you were referring to, but that's where this resonated with me. this careful, simple poem where every word is perfect.

    re: aahhahahah I 100% stress bake. tbh australia is wayy more vocal about the us election than its own. i reckon if Australia was voting it would be a biden landslide, most people i know just kind of think that America is either hilariously funny and a political joke (sorry!!!) or the end of the world as we know it (sorry again!!!!)

    100% relate so you're not alone!! except my definition of going somewhere is like...walking to the kitchen to eat something so i feel "productive" and don't feel bad about the 4 tests i have this week...oops XD
