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!

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...

Not What I Expected

FREE WRITING

I am not the girl that you'd expect 
To be from Tennessee
You might think that I am from somewhere,
An unknown country.

I am not the girl that you'd expect 
When I'm seen across the room
You might think that I'm some funny girl
Who is full of things to do.

I am not the girl that you'd expect
But when you look me in the eye
You will see that past my personality
Is a girl who longs...

A Morning in Town

PROMPT: Personal Narrative Competition 2018

    I tapped the toe of my rain boot on the wet cement. I was sitting at the bus stop, waiting for the turrential down-pour of rain to end. The faint roar of the double-decker bus sounded in the distance, and as the ground vibrated beneath me, I felt cheerful, yet melancholy. I was going into the town, to buy some sugar. My stomach had been grumbling persistantly, telling me an empty stomach and lurching bus did not meld...

Breakfast Routine

FREE WRITING

Nutty oatmeal, topped with cream.
Tangy orange juice, to wash it down;
Extra sugar, to disguise the oatmeal
And frothy tea, to complete the meal.

Sunbeams shining, a welcome yawn
Siblings greeting as they munch;
Wash your face, so that it's shining
Don't forget to fix your bedding.


*this is my homeschooled breakfast in two paragraphs...and not so much rhyming as usual. I mean, how many things ryme with oatmeal?

Never Measure Up

FREE WRITING

Do you frown because we're both so different
Or am I not cool enough
To be someone who you associate with?
Will I ever messure up?

I could say so many things about you
But I know when to restrain
And avoid causing an awkward dispute 
Cause I know it's all in vain
                 ~
Can't you see that I see that you see that we could never be "us"
And I know...

The Chains of Social Media

PROMPT: Unplug

    Life without social media would be a life without comparison. Your life would be only known to those that saw you phisically, as you really were, without special effects, filters, or hashtags. Social media helps us, in some ways, to stay connected with people from afar, but it also can be a black hole of comparison, shame, and longing, if our lives and photos don't match or compare to someone else's. So, in my humble opinion, life without...

English Memory

PROMPT: The World Anew

    I looked out of the airplane window to my left, catching a glimpse of the afternoon light of the city below. The tilting wing of the aircraft pointed like a finger towards the country houses and outlanding fields in the distance. I had visited this place in my dreams, in my favorite books, and now a sence of agonizing longing and excitement swelled within me as I descended into the living fog of my imagination.
