PROMPT: Why I Write

Write something. anything. force it out. just write.
---

I am by no means good at it.
I make silly grammar errors here and there.
My limited vocabulary gives teachers a run for their money.
My stories probably bore people to death.

But I still decide to write.
I think of what to write as I travel from one home to another.
I plan how my story unfolds when I am alone.
Sometimes the plot ends once I hit the...

The bully punched me.
The bully punched me lightly.
The bully punched me lightly for fun.
The bully punched me lightly for fun for a dare.
The bully punched me lightly for fun for a dare with my friends.
The bully punched me lightly for fun for a dare with my friends who were laughing.

Grass

FREE WRITING

Grass they sprout
Hungering to quench
Their dependence on the one
Which aids them in growth
The one so high up
Never once failing to shine
On them good or bad
Amazing isn’t it?
Green, healthy, vibrant
Easy to maintain
No need man to attain
A license to water
Growing freely
Everywhere
Except
When there is none.

The Silent Killer that we don't talk about

PROMPT: Speechwriting Competition 2020

The silent killer that we don’t talk about. He operates stealthily, among the old, among the young. A lone wolf but his reach extends to everycorner of the globe, especially in the countries in the shadows. His presence is masked by corruption and greed, some people don’t even know that the blood of his kills are on their hands. Lethal, deadly and feared, you wouldn’t want to meet him, so why do you allow others to face him? Truth...

Moving Still

FREE WRITING

Slender arms reaching out for the digits
Everyday the same movements but eliciting different routines
 
People view me with mixed emotions;
Some a quick glance followed by an exasperated cry,
Some they stare at me with a dreamy sigh
 
 
It’s strange how people say they can’t control what I portray
when they can just flip me over and hope for a better day
