I've grown up my entire life as a global nomad. Due to this, writing has become the outlet I use to express my thoughts and experiences.

Celebration -- A Day to Remember

PROMPT: A Star is Born!

Imagine the oldest person you know. No, no, no…imagine the oldest person that your grandparents know! Hold on now, let’s go back even further. What about medieval knights, or the Romans, or even the Egyptians? They lived on the same Earth as us. Now, here’s the challenge: think about the time before the earth. What do you see? A blanket of darkness? Dancing stars? Colorful galaxies? What if I told you that scientists here on our planet Earth have found...

Lushest Wreaths Adorn Your Head

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2020

The lushest wreaths of palms adorn your head.
The glint of ivory sands oft lace your throat.
For donned in flora never dared you shed,
Your hospitality for haughty's gloat.   

With white-capped suitors bowing at your feet,
You gaily tease with shallowed, turquoise locks.
From tropic-misted veils you play discrete,
Permitting only ship-bound man to dock. 
 
How swift the tides of friendship choose to ebb,
Left bare and raped by conquest, greed, and war.
Your monsoon tears create...

Listen closely, Ease.

    Do you pine for me?
            The one with kinky hair and dirty nails.
 
Laughter, stay awhile.
 
    Do you miss my lips?
            The ones with Coca-Cola flavored gloss.
 
Hold my hand, Daydream.
 
    Do you think of me?
            The one who conjured humored tragic tales. 
 
Childhood, don’t leave.
 
       Do you remember?
               It is I who wept when you waved goodbye.

2020

PROMPT: Star Wish

2020: My graduation year.
2020: The year I legally become an ‘adult.’

Those are the facts, but what do I truly hope for this coming year?

2—I want it to be a year where I bask in the beauty of past, present, and future relationships.
0—I want it to be a year where my adoptive brother opens his heart and bonds with my parents.
2—I want it to be a year where I learn how to earn,...

Guilt

Your piece was an interesting read. I can sympathize with the person who is under such 'embarrassment.' The main thing I want to warn you against is to leave your piece without any punctuation. Adding some into your piece will...

You did well in immediately throwing the reader into the thick of the action. However, I think that it would be nice if you included some punctuation in your piece. Though it might be a show of creative liberty to...

That One Computer Class When You Have a Substitute

PROMPT: Microphone

The way the "quite" classroom shattered with ring of the bell was the best part. With all of your descriptions, the forced silence of the room was building up until it exploded when everyone shot out of the room. The...
