This is a piece from a prompt about astonishes you. We had to write 10 things that astonished you and do a bunch of writing prompts that worked around that. One of them (this piece) was about telling a fairy tale-ish story of how that astonishment was founded. The astonishment I picked what 'seeing powerful spoken word performances. This is a draft, and I am open to have anyone's feedback on it! Enjoy!

Once Upon.

August 22, 2015


Once upon a struggling time.
People came together.
Being united with one common message.
The same hope and dream of their message being heard.
They begin to craft.
Forming every word.
Every break,
And every motion.
They create a voice.
A voice that could be heard from miles away.
A voice they hope can help change the perspectives of the people around them.
Touching their heart.
And uniting their soul.
They have strong hopes.
A hope they can begin a conversation afterward.
A dream of being remembered.
Far after their existence.
To eternity.
