Ridiculously self- pressured, hopelessly (and unsuccessfully) in love for three years, and scared to write the things that matter. And that’s me on a good day . Good luck.

Women Warriors

FREE WRITING

You think that it’s okay to strip away our rights.
To claim that our voices are minuscule and meek
I am not your lesser half
I do not submit to this torture.
I will not go down quietly.
I will protest my status to represent myself
I will not be covered.
Shrouded in a blanket of lies and told to go home?
Afghanistan is my home.
I will stand tall with my fellow women
We will march this government to...

The Meaning of Tea

FREE WRITING

What turns water into tea? I swish the murky flavors of the earth between my teeth and try to taste the difference. Water is a poor man’s drink, nothing more than substance. Survival for the sake of avoiding death. Tea is an entirely different creature. Exotic, it unleashes fire on your taste buds.

His body was an iridescent rainbow of color, and in each layer of gelatin, there were various stages of decomposing animals. Little larvae, butterflies, rodents, and other assorted creatures were trapped within him, and as he chuckled, licking his lollipop with gusto, I saw the scorpion he had trapped within it, straining to get out. Here was a horrific beast, beautiful...

Child of the Street

PROMPT: Three Month Window

    I want to change the way I shrivel when I enter a room. Hunched shoulders, eyes down, as small as possible. It’s been ingrained in me, this will to hide. Ever since that closet and those chains and my heartbreak. Betrayal morphed me into this lesser version of myself. Shoved away from my family, I was made into an object- an It. Look at it, they say! What will it do? Where does it live? And rarely, why is it...
