Dear America,
Why do you bombard us with conflicting views in such a dangerous time? Why do you tell us to stay safe while leaving loopholes and giving us false hope? Why do you allow people to endanger others?
Why can you not find a way to protect us when we are most vulnerable? Why do you shut everything down with no consideration for how it will affect your people? Why do you trap us in our homes with no...

Dear America (2)

FREE WRITING

Dear America,
Where is the compassion you claim to have taught your children? Why do they tear others down and find anonymous insults better than admitting their own faults? Why can’t they see that they are the ones causing the destruction of the world they claim to love?
What the actual heck, America? Teach them to be kind, it isn’t communism. Teach them the Golden Rule, it won’t end your precious capitalist system. Teach them the weight of their words,...

Dear America,
Is this the legacy you’re leaving? Is this how you want your children to remember you?
Dear America,
You’re supposed to be better than this. A land of the free. You aren’t supposed to take my heart and crush it with your constant partisan fighting, take its pieces and use them to stab yourself in the foot every time I think you’re coming close to peace, turn it against you by using harsh words instead of promises.
Dear...

Isolation

PROMPT: Solidarity

Disease-- invisible but clearly seen
Leaves us hiding from a world of green
We stay in our houses, lock our doors
Tell friends we cannot see them anymore
​We close our churches, storm our stores
Wash our hands and pace our floors
Faced with Corona, we run and hide
Its killing effects leave us petrified
Schools close and work does too
We're in this together, me and you
Videocalls are our new best friend
As we wait for this pandemic...

A Lonely Road

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2019

    "Run away with me, Asha." The words slipped from my mouth before I could stop them. 
    She answered with a no, as I expected. My breath caught and I turned, ready to leave. But she continued, surprising me. "You know it's not my choice, Eira."
    I turned to face her. "I know. I just need to get away. There are too many memories."
    She looked at me with understanding in her eyes. "You don't...

A Tragic Aspiration

PROMPT: Fantasy Writing Competition 2019

    Underneath the night sky a leaf landed lightly on a lake, distorting the moon's reflection with the ripples it created. Beside the water a young girl looked up to watch to the twinkling stars. Her curly hair cascaded down her back like an inky waterfall and her pale eyes appeared to glow as she gazed at the moon. Her lips twisted into a sad smile as she stepped silently into the water. Within moments, she seemed to have disappeared. The...

A Tragic Aspiration

PROMPT: Fantasy Writing Competition 2019

    Underneath the night sky a pebble crashed into a lake, distorting the moon's reflection with the ripples it created. As the water stilled, a young girl looked up to watch to the twinkling stars. Lit only by the full moon, she seemed almost like a spirit. Her curly hair cascaded down her back like an inky waterfall and her pale eyes appeared to glow as she gazed at the moon. Her lips twisted into a sad smile as she stood...
