Not Funny

FREE WRITING


"Not to be, like, rude or anything. But I look at all those class posters and wonder how many people have killed themselves." Laughter erupted from the small lunch table in the high school commons. A girl named Ellie had asked the question as if she had said something funny. And she couldn't even say the last four words without doubling over with laughs. 
    Suicide is not funny.

Freed

FREE WRITING

my skin boils under your touch
i never asked for much
my heart grows cold
this act is growing old

your eyes are the darts 
that punctured my heart
my hands tremble and shake
as my soul shatters and breaks

tears pool at my feet
you never made me feel complete
the gun you used to shoot holes in my heart

you see,

Mother Earth

PROMPT: Earth Day Writing Competition 2019

the sun stayed home today
and the stars ran away

separating loved ones by every mile

flowers die and trees wither
the ground becomes cold

animals slaughtered
mother, fathers, sisters, and brothers...

"Paradise"

FREE WRITING

The sky resembles to a portrait of a sunset
Streets crowd to the sound of music

The sun peaks above the horizon at sunrise
People call this place Paradise

Tourists visit, but only true residents know the secrets of Paradise
Drawn to the stunning beaches and sunsets
Hearts swoon to the breathtaking sunrise
Bodies crowd the shores, as they dance to upbeat music
Visitors...

Humanity

FREE WRITING

A wall separates me from the outside world
People say I needed to open the door and let others inside
But they never understood that in doing so I would let in the evil
Goodness is painted across the world
Evil litters it
Minds like my own 
Can't tell the difference
We see beauty in evil and pain in good
We blur the lines of humanity
Both sides in some sense are right 
So this is why I swallow the...
