The eternal finish line

PROMPT: Sports Journalism Competition

It's sunrise on Lake Ruataniwha, the water is like shining like glass. Rich orange rays from the break of day reflect and dance on the water's surface. Nerves sink into my bones, it is dead silent, I can hear my heart beating as if it's about to leap out of my chest. The silvery, turquoise water of Lake Ruataniwha is exposed among frost laced hills and dry scrubby Mackenzie Country terrain. An array of white shadowy mist clasps the water...

We marvel the streets
Lost in time
Lost in our thoughts 
We are at odd with everyone
Not knowing how to conform
We explode with confusion
we are lost in a stormy sea
with gushing emotions

A whirlwind of feelings 
Spontaneous thoughts
Maxed out emotions
Hysterical laughter
Neurotic anger
and tears plummeting to the ground

We sparkle 
We are teens
bursting at the seems
Infused with teenage glory
Were more than just a screen
We are teens 
We're  on...

The eternal finish line

It's sunrise on Lake Ruataniwha, the water is like shining like glass. Rich orange rays from the break of day reflect and dance on the water's surface. Nerves sink into my bones, it is dead silent, I can hear my heart beating as if it's about to leap out of my chest. The silvery, turquoise water of Lake Ruataniwha is exposed among frost laced hills and dry scrubby Mackenzie Country terrain. An array of white shadowy mist clasps the water making the finish line seem eternal. My rough and blistered hands are clammy as I tightly grip the rubbery, marshmallow pink oar handles. I look over my shoulder and see florescent orange buoys that disappear in the distance displaying the vastness and serenity of the lake. I can see dusty desert like fauna that disappears into highlighter blue water and rugged snow-capped mountains that loom in the distance.  Surrounding us is seven crews who are scarcely composed with their heads...

We're  on fire

We are teens 
We're  on fire

We unconditionally dream
buzzing with brilliance
and laced with ambitions
we are filled with
ever changing energy
every changing energy

Glued to our iphones 
we scroll and scroll
stuck in a pocket sized screen
drunk on social media
filled with contradiction 
we are compulsive
and addicted

Lost in societies expectations
Living glorified Instagram lives
We sear our eyes on screens 
While waiting for our dreams
We're more than just a pocket sized screen ...
