Torn Apart

Have you ever had the feeling that you could take over the world and be king?
somtimes thoughts of success fill my mind and instantly, I feel elevated and confident ready to slay every darkness in the world.

Magic

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things

When life gets hectic and everything feels like caving in,
I sit on the edge of my bed and remind myself that all things happen for a reason, and that the world or my problem is only a figment of my imagination 
If I wish to create paradise, I can create by imagining reater and better things and putting action to bring forth what I desire. 
That's  how I find solace.

Ocean

FREE WRITING

As a young man, I find myself saddened by the fact that I am still trying to find my place in the world. The world feels heavy and unfair. Everytime I walk out the door I feel like my front porch is the ocean, and I automatically fall into this great vast ocean which have no mercy for anybody.

Why I write

PROMPT: Why I Write

Why I write-I write because the world is too vast and mysterious for me to comprehend. Writing helps me vocalize my words onto a page that will perhaps last till eternity. It helps me articulate what I really want to say without been judged and ridiculed in public. Through writing i find my voice and creative edge. As the words flow on the paper I find that the gap between imagination and reality is bridged and I can enter into...

Push

PROMPT: Walking

His legs felt weak as he stumbled down the mountain. Every bone in his body felt weak and nimble.With no one around to help, and no cars or security passing by. The lonely hiker limped his way to the main road. The man walked meloncholy , yet purposely. He whispered to himself "i guess going on your own path and intuition sometimes leads you to a little pain". He smiled as blood trickled down his nose like water rolling down...

This is for the broken souls, the outcasts, and those who hide their creativity and true selves. I know how you feel,
Broken souls-
I have been to the depths of hell just like you have, and have faced a thousand demons. I know life gets tough and the anxiety that runs through your heart runs deep like a bottomless pit.

NO IDENTITY

FREE WRITING

why do i, feel like in this i have no control even though free will exist, why do i create the things i hate, why do i feel like a puppet in this society. They claim i am free, but my thoughts feel trapped and one dimensional. Sometimes, i claim to be god and holler down the streets declaring my independence to the world but at times i feel like i am being controlled by whats around me. My heart and spirit feel weary....
