I'm 17 and I've never gotten a chance to put any of my stuff out there and now I can. A lot of what I write is rather dark, it tends to be more focused on death than anything. Also, it's doubtful you'll find any sappy romance stories in my portfolio.

Are We Using Social Media Wrong?

PROMPT: Unplugged: Op-Ed Competition

As a society today, we've begun to view social media as harmful because we see it as something that sets unrealistic and unachievable standards that lead to jealousy and self-deprecation. Do you ever stop to think that the reason we view social media in such a poor light is because we're using it wrong? We declare it a troublesome force in our day to day lives, but we often fail to see the good it does. Sure the people online...

The Music

PROMPT: Talking to “You”

You can hear the music in the wind. The music you know travels to you from the far north where the children are hidden deep in the mountains. Where the people still smile and laugh, where there is still hope. It is a land far different from the one in which you lie. Here, the ground is soaked with the blood of all your fallen men and all the leaves on the trees have fallen to the bloodstained ground and...

When the World Goes Dark

PROMPT: Open Prompt

    The world is seen from a billion perspectives every day. The man that sits on the sidewalk with the cardboard sign in his hands, begging those that pass for any sort of change may see it as a dark and hopeless place. The people that pass ignore and play the role of those too arrogant to help a man in need, or maybe they think he dug himself into his current predicament, but then there’s that one person who doesn’t...

The First Time I Cried

PROMPT: I Remember

I remember the first time I cried. I remember the exact hour of the exact day. I remember the way my father hung his head, how he looked at me. I remember him staring, just standing there and staring at me, he couldn't look away. I remember when he leaned down and asked me a question I knew he already had the answer to. I remember how when I answered, he closed his eyes, real slow. I remember how he...

Sweet Night

PROMPT: Songwriting Competition 2017

2 steps, thats all he had left
He'd taken 24 chances so she wouldn't forget
She had one word left between her lips
But he quieted her with a dying kiss
Isn't it funny? 
How quick things can change

It was a sweet night 
To make her forget
And that dark light
Had already quit
So he couldn't get better

Hold tight
Thats what they forget
All those silent words
Left hanging on lips
He took, one breath a second...
