#OdeToSomeFormOfWriting

November 5, 2018

FREE WRITING

20
somehow in this short time i've been here
in this supportive, slightly dysfunctional community
i discovered you.
i discovered your writing,
i discovered your heart, your soul, your love.
i discovered girls with silver eyes and girls with red hair,
i discovered boys of warring kingdoms, friends against the odds,
i discovered celestial lovers, lost to space,
i discovered children. so many children. broken, bruised and hurt.
i discovered pain. your pain.
the pain of the child with the string turned red with anguish.
or maybe it was love.
through your writing, i discovered love.
love for nature
love for humanity
love for the stupid things we do
for the silly things we end
for the beautiful things we take away.
almost as an act of rebellion
i consider making this piece something that they despise
something mentioning death or suicide
or things that they to hide
under the premise of it being unsafe for the younger community,
really?
all thirteen year olds have read the hunger games, death is nothing new.
innocence and ignorance need to be separated in the dictionary of our minds.
we're not helping future generations like this.
a piece titled as a children's game has no qualms with your confusing system.
gratuitous violence and gore i understand.
but some horrors we need to see.
the news will tell them all they need to know,
you can't hide the truth from a rallying crowd.

someformofwriting,

thanks for letting us read your words

one last time.

we'll miss you, and good luck.

Do I dislike posts that aren't actual content? Yes. But I love SomeFormOfWriting more than I hate announcements, so do the math.
I apologise for the pun.
I will miss you though.

edit: this goodbye message turned into a rant slam poem. watch this get taken down lmao because of the one word.

    I agree with all the comments before me, wholeheartedly. SomeFormOfWriting was my favourite place to look for an outstanding piece of writing (understatement of the decade). I have left this site once due to the reason of work being taken down. I only came back to get my work reviewed but my profile doesn't' even show the half of the amount of work that I have on my computer. I really hope WtW can pull their heads out of their make believe, ignorant clouds and see what everyone is trying to say. Because if there is no hope to show our TRUE selves here, then there is no hope to show our TRUE selves anywhere.

    You know what? With SFOW's permission, why don't we use the phrase "Write free" in our writing when she's gone? Some sort of tribute.

    I'm in the same boat as AminahMcBina. I haven't been here llong,, but I have already reached a point where I will miss SFOW. I'm not sure where I stand on the violence thing (I can understand both Aminah's POV and the admin's), but I will miss SFOW. I still respect and support her decision to leave. Soldiers died in the Revolutionary War so we could have the freedom to make choices like this. Always write free, SomeFormofWriting, wherever you write.

    I very much enjoyed this post. Even though I have been on WtW for hardly a month, I have connected with a few of the writer's here. SomeFormOfWriting, was an amazing writer, and her work should not have been taken down.

    It seems as though a revolution is going to start :/ I hope the posts everyone made for SFOW does not get taken down, because she needs to know how much she meant to WtW, and also WtW needs to wake the hell up! We can handle the things we see and read, they can't shield us from everything.

    I'm equally as pissed, if they take you- like your whole account- down for defiance/rebellion, I'll up and leave too, with a colourful goodbye message emailed directly to the admin.

    That is if the hate-filled ballad that I've so passionately written to WtW doesn't get me kicked too. (Inspired by you :>)
