The Gift of Knowledge

PROMPT: Timeless Counsel  | GROUP: In This Together

    In my 14 years of living I’ve gotten so many pieces of advice. Family, friends, strangers, they all have something to tell me. I don’t remember most of these  words, and some I feel are too private to share, but even if my mind doesn’t remember all the pieces of advice that I’ve been given my heart does.

Take the Controls

PROMPT: Spaceship Earth  | GROUP: In This Together

Working as crew members means that we must take hold of the mission, and be active in achieving it. Passengers would simply sit in the spaceship and let it carry them. A crew member, in contrast, would take the controls and make the spaceship go where it needs to go.
    Life is the same way. Rather than simply sitting and letting life pass us by, we must be active towards achieving our "mission" in life. We must take...

For Myself

PROMPT: Dear Me  | GROUP: In This Together

Dear Me,
You worry a lot of the time. You’ve moved past those panic attacks but anxiety still decks you a falling blow when you’re not careful. Your hands shake when you get nervous, but only worried nervous, never butterflies-in-the-stomach nervous. You compare yourself when you shouldn’t, but you’ve made peace with being imperfect. You embrace it and try to fix the parts of yourself that you think need fixing. Sometimes you can’t see the parts of yourself that hurt...

Look Skyward

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

When death threatens to overtake my calm demeanor 
When smiling with teeth strained and rotten from all my lies
Is too much.
I return to the sky 
I cast my gaze upon the heavens 
Mountain. 
Sunset.
Rise.
Beautiful in its simplicity, in its unwavering favor.
That it casts upon all wayward travelers
The sky will never abandon those it bequeaths below 
It is infinite and magnanimous and free.
Everything I want to be.

The Hollow of Breath

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

The racing of a heart, still
apprehensive in its dawn.
The steeling of a will,
a soul, inside, is torn.

The indomitable, unsurpassable, 
most daunting of all horrors. 
Too close to ever evade -
The Mind.

My conjurer, my personal demon.
Bone deep power.
How it creates that which none have ever seen
in the flesh,
is the true terror.

It threads through the heart of all peoples,
feeding their imagination,
seeping into an ink-black room,
a figment of air...

Smile

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

The pearls emerge nestled between
the slightly chapped casket
of his pink lips
rough like an oysters shell
and in a world
of masks and distancing
of fear making our humanity dissipate
I am overjoyed
to see a smile

Crimson skies

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

Emerald green leaves sway back and forth in magnificent waves, 
A cluster of pecan trunks, 
The scurrying of a small striped squirrel, 

Pearly white snowy owls stir,
Birds tuck their little ones in the safety of their nests, 
A bed time story for mama's little boy, 

All under the cool winter air, 
Blowing the lone clouds, 
Dotting the beautifully crimson skies.

Dear me,

Words; I could write thousands of them. I could hand you an instruction manual. I could tell you exactly who I want to be when I'm you, but what does that matter? 

I have advice; lots of it. The problem is, you probably have more. You hold the thousands of secrets; you can tell me exactly what I did wrong, exactly how I can change. You stay up all night wondering what if to something I hold power...

Hiraeth

PROMPT: Superhero of 2020  | GROUP: In This Together

The world does not need a hero.  
The world does not need more reason to fight. 
The world needs a friend, 
to hold its hand while facing everything thrown their way. 
The world does not need someone to solve its problems, 
it just needs a hug; 
it just needs someone to hold while everything falls apart. 

The world is not broken; 
its just alone. 

He's missing home.

A Mutual Acquaintance

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

I lose myself in his words.

For in his words are a safe place.
A safe, twisted place.

In his words no hopeful dream, can hope to stay
Because there, fear prowls, eager to consume.

Don't believe what he says.
His words are like a broken mirror, 
the most beautiful complexion will always be distorted in it's reflection

No, his words are an enemy to growth
and an antonym to truth.

His words are the lies we allow to take...

Ghost of my past

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

I see you in the lake down by the meadow. 
I hear your voice in the song of the cuckoos. 
What could I have done, 
to make you stay? 
One more night, 
by my side, 
just like the old times. 

I know I hurt you, 
I know I did. 
Should've said I loved you. 
Should've made you stay. 

I saw you, 
but I couldn't, 
I heard you, 
but I didn't. 

The memories keep me awake, 
day and night.

With the humanities ( my food banks ) gone - seagull’s POV

PROMPT: Creature View  | GROUP: In This Together

Sue had been a big fan of fish’n’chips. A great kiwi delight in NZ. She hovered in the air, searching for the familiar smell of fish’n’chip from the cafe on the side on the road. Yet it didn’t come. Sue flapped her wings viciously, and soared towards Mission Bay, where there’s a whole street of restaurants right beside the beach. Laughing, wandering and dining, there had always been a busy place for humans. The ideal Sunday afternoon to most kiwis...

Unconscious

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

The darkness
behind the scenes, 
the fortune
in those
hands
stained with blood.

Should we
leave it there?
after all if
we don’t see
it
maybe it
doesn’t 
exits.

But could we?
after all
it’s closer
then we ever imagined.

the caged animals
might
as well
one day become
us.

We fall
in to
this giant pit
going down
and
into
nothingness.

Will we regret?
Maybe
or maybe not
but 
eitherway
it’ll be
too late
to even
say
goodbye.

A Hero

PROMPT: Superhero of 2020  | GROUP: In This Together

A hero.

What is that, exactly? One may imagine a tough, rugged figure donned in a spectacular show of garments, ready to pummel the faces of evil-doers in every nook and cranny of the city. People may also think of some vigilante covered in a veil of black leather and various punk-like attire, hands ready to throw street criminals a knuckle sandwich of justice. But why?

Why do we look up to the superheroes we see zooming past our TVs...

Hey you! Or me? Or us?

Whatever! I know you're you and I'm me and we are still the same. I say that because I know I will have evolved into a different person. Maybe only the little things have changed like favorite colors or foods. Maybe some bigger things have changed like career aspirations. Despite what may have changed by the time you see this, I know that I still remain the same. The same feelings, the same sense...

Untitled and unseen

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

This is something everyone wishing they could see, what only a few can. 

People never believe, who'm just avoid the belief. 
At times, not everyone agreed with what we saw.

And so it was clear, for us it was seen. For them it was unseen. 

We, the seen, have decided that we will remain hidden alike our sights...
For the sake of the people who do not see the unseen.

Together we, the unseen, will in hope become apart of...

What can be felt but never seen or touched. The good and bad experiences that define us that foretell the course of our future. Problems without resolutions, a recipe without any ingredients. Life Shattered like glass, broken in pieces never again to be made whole. A Puzzle without all the pieces unable to be completed.
Despair Overwhelms impossible to neglect or ignore. Reality overcomes fantasy the harsh truth of the world becomes clear. The sad feelings of self hate we keep...

Happiness.

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

You cant see it,
It's like the sun, It's in you
Some can't find it
Some can

When you think about it most of us don't until we finish
Finish school, Home, Work
Friends, Family, Lover
You can only find them when you can see it

Maybe it is unseen but when you find it
it's not invisible
it's you
It's Love

It's friendship
And It's Name is happiness

I had a dream last night 
I was fighting with myself
Telling myself to give up cause I already live in hell
I locked myself in a dark cell
Its no biggie I chose it myself
See I bang on the door and beg and plead
Tryna get out but I'm really holding the keys
My name is rival because my biggest rival is me
That's what I wish people could try and see
I'm the reason I walk around...

I'm losing my mind
Sitting here in my bed 
Nothing but time
She's one of a kind
But so out of my league 
Its scary to see how far out of my reach
Zero self confidence
That's why I suffer
I tried to find a perfect time to tell her I loved her
But I was too late 
I let my chance pass me by
Now say I'm happy
Hell of a lie
Remember how I said she was one...

A Bird's Eye View

PROMPT: Creature View  | GROUP: In This Together

A hundred miles per hour, soaring through the airwind, was the falcon. Wind gushed across his streamlined feathers as he flew forward. Its bellowing sound was nothing but a mere taunt to his bravado performance, only propelling him further and further. To him, this was an everyday feeling; a brisk walk, in human terms. Yet, to any onlookers watching from their windows, his unmatched speed was a remarkable feat of nature. 

However, he began to slow down. From a subtle...
