Hi there, I'm Piper!
I love Jesus; nerdy music (lots of Owl City and Gray Havens!); writing songs; astronomy and physics :P Bye now!

Message from Writer

Hiya! I'm Piper, 16 year old Christian girl living over seas, oldest of one brother, two sisters, and daughter of two AWESOME parents. I love astronomy, writing songs on my ukkulele about life, and baking up new creations!

Again

FREE WRITING

Hello, again.
We've met in my dreams.
So, hello again.

Goodbye, again.
We've danced too long.
So, goodbye again.

Take my hand, again.
You have but once so please,
Take my hand again.

Come back, again.
You said you'd be back.
So, come back, again
To me.

The Stargazers: pt. 2

    The hum of the car engine seemed to vibrate through my body. It was the one thing I could feel; besides that, I was numb with worry. My blurry thoughts were interrupted by a ringing sound, and I soon realised that it was my phone, muffled by the folds of my backpack. I fumbled for it, and after tapping the screen, I exhaled and said, "Hey, Mom."
    I had prepared myself for this call long before...

I Remember.

FREE WRITING

Every night when I cry
I'm remembering when you said goodbye
Every day when you learn 
I remember how you hugged me, I yearn

To live those moments again
To know when I'll see you again
But when we meet again
I'll be woman, you'll be a man.

Every night when I whisper
Into the night, it's cause I remember 
Every day, if you think of me
I hope you remember all the memories 

To live those moments again
To...

Time Difference

FREE WRITING

There's a time difference
There's a chill
There's an ache in my heart
There's a significance 
There's a thrill
There was one at the start

But now when I'm awake, you're asleep
When you are laughing, I am dreaming
When I am crying, are you crying 
About what has been and what could be?

There's a time difference 
There's a chill
There's an empty place in my heart
There's a significance 
There's a trill 
From the birds that we aren't

    I glanced over my shoulder once more. Yes, he was still there. Our eyes met for a second and we smiled at each other, somewhat awkwardly, but happily too. I was still in awe. Here I was, 21, and barely five-foot-five, walking through NASA headquarters in Florida. Eddie Farnsworth and I were about to meet with NASA director Jim Kedetskey, the first step in becoming the United States of America's newest astronauts. Ever since I was fourteen, seven...

What Do You Know

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019

Verse 1:
A stone skipped on the water front
Doesn’t do that on its own
It has to be thrown by someone
Who knows just how to throw

And getting someone to open up
Doesn’t happen without prodding
It happens with kindness and some love
And a whole lot of praying

Chorus:
What do you know when you despise
What can you see when you are blind
How do you care when you don’t show
Well what do you know

A Wish For The Year

PROMPT: 2019

    This new year? I am hoping, praying...more like dreaming of lots of things I would like to happen. There are so many scenes I want to portray, so many sentences I want to be said, so many people I want to know more. But...I am unsure as to what my year should be like. The ingredients for a near year are continually evolving: one day I'm sure all I need is a bit of adventure, a smidgen of...

A Tale of Brooks and Bruises: Part 1

FREE WRITING

     In my dreams, on the nights when I felt lonely or scared, I was given a kingdom to hold. This kingdom was just as real as any here on Earth, but at the same time, it couldn't have been more different. I remember the first time I went to Lavabeigh, the little world I went to so often after that. I had had a rough day at school, my dad had stayed late at work, my little sisters...
