The babies grow to become relatively humble children,

Passion flies through the window and power takes it place

White poppies

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together



PROMPT: The Unseen
GROUP:  In this together

     White poppies 
People running helter-skelter, 
Mama is shouting "where is my daughter!"
Gunshots, bomb blasts,
Swords drawn from their sheaths.
We thought; it was a thing of the past,
But we still find it hard to breathe, 
Hard to live, hard to see.

Beautiful white poppies in the garden,
Where every creature lives happily.

Everyone trusts no one,
'Cause a mother slaughtered her teen,
​Little boy with a gun,
Side pockets...

Who the world needs today

PROMPT: Superhero of 2020  | GROUP: In This Together

The World needs someone who is ready to stand against injustice, who is ready to say no to insecurity, no to racism. The more we keep silence the worst it becomes, the world we leave in today is not the world we can keep silent. To say no this we need to create awareness and take action. The world needs someone who is ready to fight for peace

FREE WRITING  | GROUP: In This Together

        It happened in an irreversible moment of recklessness. Maybe it was my fault. Who am I kidding? Of course it was. I was the one who was not being alert or looking forward when I was in a rush. The one who slammed on the brakes too late. The one who caused all the future events and complications to take place. 
    But I didn’t know that in the fifteen seconds it took to change my life.  
    My day hadn’t started...

~HOME~

PROMPT: At Home  | GROUP: In This Together

Home
Maybe she's overcomplicating this, nothing could get her away from the pillows and soft blanket.
But is that home?
In such a luxurious place, she feels foreign and unwanted in the most ridiculous way.
Is that home?
That's not home!
Reading a book with music blasting on the headphone, adapting a character's life making it her own.
Yes! That's home.
In her uncle's car sprawled out on the backseat.
Staring out the window, seeing the future what she plans...

PROMPT: This I Believe  | GROUP: In This Together

I believe in creativity. 
On this Earth, from the year I was born, to now; times have drastically changed in how kids observe and play. 
When I was a small child, I was blowing air from my mouth into a fan to make funny sounds, and pretending to be an all-powerful superhero on the playground at recess. 
In today's society, parental figures hand their small children technology. 
Do parents not understand the importance of allowing your children to explore new...

This I Believe

PROMPT: This I Believe  | GROUP: In This Together

I believe,
one day,
we will return to normal.
Masks will no longer be worn,
small businesses no longer closed
still, through the rising numbers,
I believe.

I believe,
one day,
I will be okay.
My trauma will be healed,
my mind free of guilt and regret
as waves of depression come and go,
still,
I believe.

To The Future Me.

PROMPT: Dear Me  | GROUP: In This Together

Dearest Self, 

You, as a singular person, have gone through more than any person should have at a young age. 
I hope that now, in the future, you are thriving,
happy, 
and free. 
Because right now? 
You are struggling. 
You have been through abuse; sexually, physically, emotionally, verbally. 
You have been suicidal; you have tried to end your life; you have been to a mental hospital. 
You have been bullied, your entire life. 
You have struggled with severe depression,

PROMPT: Playlist  | GROUP: In This Together

idk, there's just something about playlists for me. Maybe it's my obsession with listing things, putting songs into groups and categories for seasons and events...I just have a thing for organizing my music. Maybe i'm just insane. I'm sure my friends wouldn't rule that out. Whatever. I love playlists. I have too many, I make too many, I delete too many, and this is my latest.

The Shadow

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

Your stalker:
a transcending presence
traces each step, paving your trail
he camouflages in the lingering darkness that follows you
consumes you
defines you,
you

Your figure:
precisely defined by the obscurity of your forged delectation
is heightened by the shadows cast
the cast that accentuates your imperfections
your indignity
your desolation,
you

Your self:
the antithesis of your shadow
the lightness
faded
disregarded,
shadowed

A Captivating Sight

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together

Wow, what a night,
Beautiful indeed,
A captivating sight,
The joy of being freed.

Stars unimaginably bright,
The moon as white as snow,
Each a comforting light,
I admire, as I sit below.

As I gaze at the sky,
I let out a cough,
On my back I lie,
As I begin to drift off.

At home. In my own room. I don’t need to pretend, to be all those that I’m not. I don’t have to be happy, or be the cheerful one. I don’t have to bring light to the world, i can be the darkness without guilt.
Lock the door for me. Put on some musics as well. The voice of Merethe Solvdt soothes me, and all those unhappy moments are resolved, locked outside the thin walls of my room, and out...

Anxiety 

I honestly don't know 
My days are gloomy
I deeply inhaled
I can't breath 
Eyes blood-red from crying
I just said "I'm actually sad,
why do I feel bad?"

Anxiety

I'm unsure
Scared
Doubting 
This will all be a mess...
I'm trapped 
It's crazy enough to be 
Imprisoned in your own mind
What more could it do to me
If I can't even get in luck with life

Anxiety

The feeling or worrying 
The feeling of unease
The feeling...

Everywhere is Everything

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

Everywhere is darkness,
everywhere is light.
There is always day
and there is always night.

Everywhere is loneliness,
everywhere is connection.
There are always people
if not always reception.

Everywhere is noise,
everywhere is silence.
There is always quiet 
hiding amongst the violence. 

Everywhere is broken,
everywhere is pristine.
There may still be beauty
waiting to be seen.

Everywhere is...

Everywhere is everything:
Turmoil and calm,
Forward and backward,
Ancient and modern.

The pejorative and laudatory
tangle into one.
Though...
