THE HARD ROAD

PROMPT: This I Believe  | GROUP: In This Together

THE HARD ROAD.
Darkness filled the entire night,
All I had to do was work hard and fight.
At first the journey was full of bumps and scars,
It felt as if my body was been run over by cars.
The mountain to my dreams was full of ups and downs.
But its better to swim than to drown.
The rocks surely bruised my knee,
Achieving 'The Dream' wasn't a cup of tea.
The dark night became the darkest.
There...

More than a pandemic

PROMPT: Don’t Forget  | GROUP: In This Together

Don't tell me you've forgotten,
the world isn't at peace,
the pandemic isn't the worst.
climate change is still happening,
the fires aren't a curse.

Don't tell me you've forgotten,
soon it won't be snowing anymore,
our winters won't be white.
Climate change is still happening,
so let's stand up and unite!

Don't tell me you've forgotten,
polar bears are drowning,
the polar caps are melting.
Climate change is still happening,
we have to keep on helping.

Take Me to Love

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

Take me to the first cry
When a mother smiles at her child
Take me to the last farewell
'Tween parents and the teen so wild

Take me to the Samaritan's heart
Who, though a stranger, would still pause
Take me to the warrior's way
Helping another with a different cause

Take me to the wife's quiet love
For her husband's every breath
Take me to the man's devotion
Who would not part till death

Take me to the gift...

The Power Of Secrets

PROMPT: This I Believe  | GROUP: In This Together

I believe in the power of secrets.
I believe in the whispered words travelling from one person's lips to another's ear.
I believe in the treacherous lies spilt from those very same lips  to another pair of ears.
I believe in the inevitable diffusion of those secrets, whispered in a moment of trust and camaraderie, spreading through the air and bumping into peoples ears like particles in Brownian motion.
I believe in the indescribable high you feel when a weight...

A Visit to the Mirror World

FREE WRITING  | GROUP: In This Together

     On the marble steps of the City of Vallen, of the Kingdom of Corval, stood daunting columns flanking the left and right sides of the raised entrance to the monarch's residence. The entrance jutted out from the rest of the design with a modest steel door pushed into the cube. The top of the jutting cube is a garden. A variety of flowers lived up there, nourished from undisputed access to sun. The columns drew high in the blue...

Life goes On

FREE WRITING  | GROUP: In This Together

Whenever the clouds of sorrow 
gather in your blue sky,
whenever the locusts of badluck
invade your green farms,
Never forget fight 
cause this is name of life.

At times you may may feel
that nobody feels you,
and with that feeling 
it feels that the world has stopped too.
You might feel targetted by hundreds
hundreds of sharp arrows,
and here comes the time 
of endless sorrow.

But this is the life dear
nothing stops here,
problems are there ...

From A Dog's Eye View

PROMPT: Creature View  | GROUP: In This Together

Molly was a lazy type of dog. Her schedule consisted of a strict regime of sleep, sleep, eat, oh and more sleep. 
Not that this relaxed pup was going to complain! 

Her owners were nothing but kindness themselves, lavishing their "precious baby" with treats and toys galore. Sure, they were often busy, yakking away on shiny pieces of metal, or dashing in and out of the door at late hours. 

You see, Molly was officially adopted as a puppy, at...

"Astrid?"

      Astrid shifts. She refuses to meet my eyes. I didn't look either.

Riddle Me this

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

These are my poems for intangible things. The answers will be in the footnotes.
Today's the morrow,
Yesterday's today,
and tomorrow will be today.
What is time?

I smell sweet and overwhelmingly dirty from place to place.
Everyone uses me as is their lifeline,
but flowers reject me.
Not a single dent by time can stop me,
but only few acknowledges my presence.
What am I?

I make your spine shudder
and I make your eyes dart at every corner ...

Verse 1;

This song gives us hope for the future like no other.

Thoughts of a angry world

PROMPT: This I Believe  | GROUP: In This Together

I believe poison is healing.

I believe waves are lonely.

I believe phones are freeing, but freedom always come with a price

I believe dignity is false pride, loyalty is just a fantasy.

Bedtime stories are real, Politicians are killers of everything.

I believe belief is fleeting, thoughts are forever.

I believe love is a painkiller, good in the moment, but tears you apart in the end sometimes.

I believe dolphins are smarter than we think,

They know not to...

Bailey McFee's Mission in Life

If there was leftover love in the world, it sure as heck made sure to stop and rest awhile on Bailey McFee's shoulders. I swear, this little girl hated nobody and loved everyone. She had long blonde hair that was almost always tied up in twin pigtails, her pale face was always covered with freckles no matter the season, and her smile could wear down even the strictest of adults.When she was 5, she gave a homeless couple her 1,000...

Her Wisdom Came Too Late

FREE WRITING  | GROUP: In This Together

She is a ghostly girl on a forgotten ship
A dreaming and misty lady the gods once favored
She sees the waves, the boulders, and the promise of taunts
That she too was a promise once.

Locks of moss and death, once evergreen
Untouched, painless skin of fallen leaves
She was the daughter of marble ways and praise
She was creature, she was mortal, she was god. 


He sees her now, he hears of then
Then, she needn’t jewels; her...

I believe in wind, whispering though invisible
A waft of fresh breeze to invigorate my skin
I believe in gravity, the force of earth's pull
A steadying certainty hidden within

I believe in thunder, a clap of might
So loud it could break thought
I believe in skunk stench, for its acridness
Will leave me distraught

So I must believe in You, though I see you but little
For effects of Your might are not to be forgotten

I Want Something to Believe In

What do you believe in?

Well I dunno. What do I believe in? That could be anything.

I guess God counts, does He not? I believe in God. That satisfies the question, but I have so many questions - so many curiosities to be addressed and answered. My belief increases with inquisitiveness. 

Do I believe in people?

The question doesn't make too much sense either, so how am I meant to answer? Well they exist in my mind all right...

PROMPT: This I Believe  | GROUP: In This Together

I believe in,
The twinkling of the stars,
The dew on the leaves,
The first ray of the sun,
The scars on the moon,
The smile of the innocent child, 
The quotes I read every night,
The love of the parents,
The dream I think about everyday,
The bliss on my face when I score exceptionally,
The fog I see every winter,
The ice-cream I eat every summer,
The flower blooming,
The leaves changing their colors,

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

The sound resonates inside me
My eyes glued to the screen
unaffiliated from the outside world.
My eyes are streaked and brimming red 
from all that brightness emitted ahead.
But I have not a care.

Gasp!

I unplug 
from the mobiles, the gadgets
From the so-called necessity
I unplug and transform
and no longer am I that solitary being.

I heave out a sigh and look around.
The sun shines from above
penetrating my glasses and into my eyes.

Spring's New Life

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

Broken through the precious ground
a shoot worth nothing to the eye.
As bitter winter thaws and the sun sings its gentle lullaby
as alighted spring comes around.
Roots of fragile shallow rope that hold new hope
with shining new leaf grows small.
Ignored as all the world grows
and forgotten in all its empty woes,
winter retreats as spring shares its all.
