Message from Writer

"'I didn’t go there looking for you. I went looking for me.' My voice is soft, low, and shaky. 'But now, here you are, and somehow, in finding you, I think I’ve found myself.'"

Society of School

FREE WRITING

Why is it that
My love for learning, for growing, for pride in myself
Causes other to attack and bring me down to where they themselves are
Drowning,
Alone in the sea of their mediocrity

Why is success seen as arrogant,
Passion seen as oppressive,
Excitement seen as insanity?
Today, students are focused on being
Mediocre, just a
Broker
Between what is possible and what is wasteful

School is seen as a jail; it has made a forced habit out...

Two Drifting Ships

PROMPT: Love in Words

You don't know that
When you left
A piece of you was forgotten

It fell behind the couch and now it sits
Forgotten
In the living room of my heart

We are drifting
Like two ships passing in the dark
Only my lights are on - yours are not

We are still connected - our radios are on, only
No words are being passed between decks, there is only silence as we drift apart.

I can hear the background noise...

Today and Tomorrow

PROMPT: A Pair of Poems

February 8, 2019
Stressed, working endlessly
I'm struggling to focus on everything at once-
Balancing dreams, hopes, and ambitions with today's work and day-to-day chores
Trying to keep my eyes forward without stumbling on the rocks I can't see beneath my feet-
I'm tired.
I'm working so hard to
Ignore the distractions of so many things but
It's hard.
The only thing I can see is the blinding light at the end of the tunnel
The hope - the dream...

Imagined Horizon

PROMPT: The Vistas Beyond

Though my window is closed, I imagine I can feel the breeze.
I watch the leaves of trees flitter, choosing to see a peaceful bird passing by rather than the large truck that is rumbling through reality.
Though all directions are blocked by identical buildings with shining roofs, I stare out as if I can see past the horizon.
