The Savage in Me

FREE WRITING

I am perfect, 
So, don't tell me that
I am flawed
Society makes me this way-
Put on makeup and make myself better
They want me to shine, 
I have talent
So how dare they tell me
I am imperfect
I am what everyone wants,
You'll never once hear me say
I am worthless.
I'm not a savage
So, youcan't tell me that
I have evil within me
My thoughts are all good, all pure,
Never will I let anyone influence...

What If?

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2019

When we are born, we are given a pen
A pen embellished by our mothers and fathers,
A pen that we will hold in our back pocket until the ink runs out,
Allowing us to construct with rich vocabulary the life we choose to live,
And As we grow we can scribble in shaky lettering 
How much it angers us that our mom made us eat peas,
How our dad put us in time out,
Or how that one...

Escape Room: A Deadly Mix of Puzzles and Your Deepest Fears

PROMPT: Film Review Competition 2019

            When looking for a good horror movie to delve into I often steer toward concepts of the paranormal, or what our world would look like in an apocalyptic fashion. Escape Room, though, took a spin on horror and placed it in a setting that we would least expect. Escape Room, as the title most obviously gives away is a horror film placed inside the twists and turns of, well, an escape room. Escape rooms have...

My December

PROMPT: My December Writing Competition 2018

December
The end of a treacherous climb
The key to our paramount change,
The gas to my car of a new year,
My cold, boney fingers grasping the wheel of hope,
Guiding me, though I swerve
I crash, tumble, and roll,
My hands white from the force of my grip,
Though it was never enough
I rely on this car far too much, to take me where I need to go,
Treating the end of the year as a potion...

Rainbow

PROMPT: Novel Writing Competition 2018

Rainbow
 
When we first met,
You turned the page in the book of my life and started a new chapter,
One with you in it, 
And you scribble in your chicken scratch “she is to be loved”,
Our love was like a rainbow,
With ruby reds of passion
And sunflower yellows of belonging,
The warm browns of the home you made for my heart reflecting off the blues of your truth,
But that home was destroyed by the black...

Feminism and It's Misconceptions

PROMPT: Speech Writing Competition 2018

Society defines feminism as “the idea that women should have more rights than men.” The dictionary defines feminism, though, as “a range of political movements, ideologies, and social movements that share a common goal: to define, establish, and achieve political, economic, personal, and social equality of sexes.” Media has single-handedly changed the definition of feminism and created dozens of new words to define different types of feminism such as white feminism, feminazi and true feminism as a way to stabilize...
