My Views On Friendship

FREE WRITING  | GROUP: In This Together

 First friendship
               The first independent choice of your life, where you did
not ask for your parent’s permission or look back at them to be with
someone, where you just let your mind make his first own realistic
decision of this puzzling world, the first time when you were not with your
parents, your protector and tried to walk your way yourself and there
you found another such person same as you, alone, confused, scared to
go on...

All God's Creatures

PROMPT: Creature View  | GROUP: In This Together

Eagle's soar above my head, 
planting the seeds of my ever-growing dread. 
I scamper through the alleys,
and while others are in the valleys, 
I think I like it here just fine. 

Seagulls pick through the sand, 
and wild dogs persist to bark, and 
the wolves--at all hours of the night--growl
and I run from the alley cats who're on the prowl, 
and the people still stay inside. 

Yes, they all avoid coming out
like the city is a fisherman...

In The Places I Am Me

PROMPT: At Home  | GROUP: In This Together

The ability to be comfortable in myself, in what I am doing, with whom I am with, and with what I am saying brings me to my most absolute home. 

As I drive 45 on the back road, the sunroof down and the music of real, raw emotion coursing through my entire being. As I am allowed to scream and cry to the lyrics, the lyrics of the songs I only listen to with no one else around. As I...

Home Sweet Home

PROMPT: At Home  | GROUP: In This Together

For me, home consists of a collection of sweet moments that I wish were never-ending
Home is being on a tram in Łódż with my newly purchased notebook in hand
Home is laughing my heart out with my best friends
Home is coming back to the people who feel like home
Home is resting with my thoughts on a lonely rainy day
Home is my favorite songs playing over and over
Home is the truth of my emotions

My Love

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

Basketball. Basketball is my everything. The pure joy it brings me. The searing love I have for it; not just the game itself, but the whole process. I'm in love with the process, if you will. The hours upon hours spent practicing, I would not want to be doing anything else. As for the game itself, it's true art. There's expression in the game. People find they have alter egos on the court. It's transformative. The intensity displayed by opposing...

Music of My Happy Place

PROMPT: Playlist  | GROUP: In This Together

1. Rockin' My Paw; Summer Salt
Vocalist Matthew Terry acknowledges the struggles that life throws, however his response to such struggles truly promotes hope and personal control. He sings, "It's my day, no one's gon' be bringing me down," as a way of declaring his own strength in challenging what challenges him. Instead of becoming burrowed in stress or frustration, he merely goes as life takes him, realizes that breaks are a necessity to growth, and simply dances and...

Six Feet Apart

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

Seven o'clock; 
I climb out my window 
to my throne made of rock 
where the wild winds blow. 

A book in my hand, 
but the real story in my heart, 
I wander the land 
and gaze at the sky's art. 

I find my place 
upon the hill, 
and my mind sets its pace 
through the author's will. 

I wander through places 
that I've never seen, 
and I wear the faces 
of people I'll never meet. 

And I'll listen to the...

Coming To Myself Apparently

PROMPT: At Home  | GROUP: In This Together

This is probably supposed to be poetic but it's late and i'm tired so here we go with just writing my non-poetic thoughts.

I come back to myself when i have nothing to think about. So, shower thoughts, those moments right before falling asleep. pretty much all of the above. and when i'm bored (which is more and more lately). heres the thing though. i don't like being bored (weird thing to say, right?) the worst time of the day...

Keep Your Head Up - The Spacies
keep your head up, when the odds are beating you, keep your head up, just keep on following your line if it’s genuine
Don't lose hope, keep going, you'll get there in the end.

Alone - Alan Walker

Solidarity is one of the most powerful things in times like this.

Though this song was written in response to the Manchester bombing and was released at the time of school shootings, the message still applies to today's events. "You can't take my youth away, this soul of mine will never break", no matter what negativity and pain appear in the news, we'll stay strong.

  1. the swish of my pen as i leave it free to dance upon a paper stage. hard downstroke, twirling upstroke, loop. a dancer untamed, soaking up the spotlight.
  2. a chocolate ice pop, melting on my tongue, tingling my taste buds with bittersweet flavor. a flood of happiness in a single lick. it coats my fingers, but i don't care. a remnant of the joy; perhaps it will last.
  3. the rhythm of footfalls on a run through a deserted neighborhood. flower...

PROMPT: At Home  | GROUP: In This Together

Home. That's a complicated word. Home is supposed to be what you call your house. But home for me, doesn't have walls. It doesn't have doors, it doesn't have a roof.

Home is my piano.
Home is melodies and harmonies
Home is my voice melding with the chords
Home is my fingers, running wild over eighty-eight keys
Home is the way I can be myself, whenever the music is flowing
Home is the peace in my soul that each note...

Dust Dance

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary  | GROUP: In This Together

Dust always dances
In the quiet of the room
Always hovering, flickering, unseen
Until light cascades forth
Flooding the area
Sunlight catches the speckles
As they flit to and fro
Dancing to an unknown melody
We humans only wish we could hear

PROMPT: At Home  | GROUP: In This Together

Home.
    It's such a simple word, but it elicits so much joy. Everyone thinks that home is where you go at the end of a long day of school or work. But that's not always the case. The place you go to every night is just a house. It's our job as the people who live there to turn it into a home.

Sugar Plum

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary  | GROUP: In This Together

A powdery white bloom on its waxy surface-
The shades of purple fused with a spot of dark red.
Its thin snappy skin reveals juicy flesh-
The colour of apricot ringed pink.
The air fills of a candy-like aroma, a mix of fruit and flowers.
Intoxicatingly sweet liquor oozes out-
A poison of the mind and heart.
A fairy sleeps deep within,
Open the pit and you shall see.

At Home

In the depth of the desert 
In the middle of the sea, 
At the bottom of a mountain 
or on top of a forest tree.

Until not long ago,
maybe two or three weeks, 
those are where I went 
those are where I felt 
home.

where my every story began,
where all of them would end
nature was my paradise
and only sometimes my hell.

but-

no matter what-

it was home.


and it was where I,
