Sun

FREE WRITING

The grass was green. Wet, soft between my fingertips. The smell of uprooted grass tickling my nose. The sun rises towards my grassy hill, casting it's light over my body. Highlighting my faults like a detective at a crime scene.
As the light washes over my face I hear the scuttling of insects within the lush grass. Some insects crawl up the mountainous blades, their antenna's quivering in the light and heat. Above the scuttling the sound of padded feet...

Past, Present, Future

FREE WRITING

The past
Irrefutable
Absolute
Hard-proven facts
Unchanged
Unbroken
The past never had not lost an argument
As the past is simply fact
Despite how we may deny it
It is without fault
And that drives us mad

The future
Will argue
Will divert
Will become liquid
It shall change
It shall break
Yet it shall never lose an argument
As the future shall never be fact
Despite how we will deny it
It will forever have fault
And that drives...

Pretty

FREE WRITING

"I am pretty, I am not pretty, I am pretty, I am not pretty..."

A small child sits atop a decaying rooftop, pale limestone blemished by patches of soot. A dress hangs over her, fabric dangling over the abyss. Her legs kick absent-minded over the edge. The child continued with her monotone voice, a small red flower in her hands she plucks a petal from it. Casting it off into the abyss.

"I am pretty, I am not pretty..."

Numbers

FREE WRITING

Numbers are like people
Each one is individual
With their own meanings and purpose
Every number
Small or large
Negative or positive
Finds it's equation someday

Numbers are like words
Yet lacking emotion
They convey the barest details
How many
How long
How much
And in doing so
provide their own language
Of pure logic and understanding

Numbers are like handholds
Rigid and firm
As the world changes
And languages falter and die
Numbers stay
And numbers remain
Strong against...

My Gods

FREE WRITING

Courage, Justice, Wisdom. These are the values many religions build their gods from. But not mine. I believe in a different value for my gods.

Greed.

As they pamper themselves in heaven, they never once gaze down upon their creation. Their eyes never rest upon the ragged and dirty homeless, nor those workers with bent backs choking on soot-plagued air. Never once do their ears listen to the cries of orphaned children, nor our prayers of desperation during night and...

The Sea and Sky

Sending ripples through its blue
As white masses form within
It reaches towards the horizon

As the sun sets
Things flickering in the dark
Creatures lacking  a name
Which travel in its shadow
Hidden within its darkness
Maybe we’ll find it’s mysteries
The answers to our unending questions
As it stretches out towards the horizon and
