First to Fall Well it’s that time again, as the outside temperature gets colder and I can stand to be here no longer. I know the onslaught that devastates my kind is coming soon enough and I can’t afford to be late for my demise. Ironically, it is my turn to usher in this new era of death and decay alone. I will be the first to fall.First to Fall4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
My family eagerly awaits my fall as I look around at all of them. We’re all identical to some degree, I feel. Sure, everyone around these parts are just inbred copies of each other, we all look alike in some aspects, but I guess that’s just genetics. I look around as my flesh starts to lose it’s lustrous color, fading into a dingy, dirty yellowish color. Is this what dying really felt like? I see my brothers and sisters around me, bits and parts of their bodies were already undergoing this change, but I guess I’m the unfortunate one to be the first one to have this co

Cry to the crystal moon
As light of silver
Descends with grace
The pale river sparkles
It shivers uncontrollably
Chilled by their cries
Time is frozen
The moment slowly fades
The wolves prowl restlessly
Calling to each other
A song of wonder
Fills the air
None have heard it before
Though it is as ancient as the moon

All stillness seems to reap across the skies.
Not but a noise is heard through city lights.
His apparition calmly floats the scene.
No sign of interruption, red or green.
His emerald eyes, reflecting stars so bright.
The silent wind caressing through the night.
His hair it flows so swiftly, smoothly, free.
Its pure white shimmer fills my fantasy.
See through his soul, you know he's human still.
The darkest angel watches over you.
You'll never see a boy so quite like him.
He's halfway dead, but changes to his will.
From black to white, it's life and death on cue.
Ensure his presence when all hope is dim.
Thin LinesHave you ever wondered,Thin Lines5 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
or even pondered,
What it's like to cross the line?
That thin white line?
Between body and mind?
Between space and time?
Between death and life?
Between peace and strife?
Ever considered crossing that line?
Such a thin line,
Between right and wrong?
Between noise and a song?
Between love and hate?
Between chance and fate?
Walking from white to black,
Or even considering to cross back?
Ever wanted to see
From prose to poetry?
From dream to reality?
From darkness to light?
From suffering to delight?
From joy to sorrow?
From today to tomorrow?
Have you ever wondered,
Has the thought ever thundered,
As to where these lines are?
Where they stretch, and how far?
They lay as you say!
Define it! Chaos and dismay!
Perception is yours to command,

The Day Before Judgement Night The day of salvation has begun, sadly. The hours of Judgement day were starting soon, and I had little time to see my love, Sibyl. I ran through the black forest, a maze of black bark, black leaves, black branches, and blacker earth not towards the land of salvation, but moreover the land of damnation.The Day Before Judgement Night4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Blood-moon castle was a jail, but not just a jail for criminals and thieves, but a prison of the damned and the final resting place for the forsaken: a holding-cell for those poor souls that are possessed by the devil's minions, or those who renounced their salvation; many called it the house of heretics, but this demonic house held what was closest to me. I arrived at a clearing, a wet, muddy field where the evils can be felt in the ground beneath me; a place where the faint scent of rain-water is the only peace one feels as the sounds of pain and suffering crowd the air like an orchestra of

I guess before I continue any further, I should introduce myself. My name is Chris Kennedy. I'm a typical teenage computer genius with a wild imagination. That's usually what leads to weird dreams like the one last night, and it also gives me an awful tendency to daydream.
I went into the kitchen to get my breakfast. As I looked out my kitchen window, I saw a strange silver car parked in my front yard. It looked sort of like an old DeLorean. It really didn't bother me since my neighbors park in my yard all the time. What did freak me out though was the fact that I never saw anyone get in the car.

"Good, I guess." I answered.
"What do you mean you guess?" Britnee asked me. She's always hyper and sort of nosy sometimes.

Democratic socialists believe that both the economy and society should be run democraticallyto meet public needs, not to make profits for a few. To achieve a more just society, many structures of our government and economy must be radically transformed through greater economic and social democracy so that ordinary Americans can participate in the many decisions that affect our lives. Democracy and socialism go hand in hand. All over the world, wherever the idea of democracy has taken root, the vision of socialism has taken root as welleverywhere but in the United States. Because of this, many false ideas about socialism have developed in the US. With this pamphlet, we hope to answer some of your questions about socialism.

I had never seen the original before, but after watching this in theaters, I really thought it would be a great action flick. Well, I guess I was 50% right...but 50% wrong.
When a group of teenagers in Washington are invaded by North Korean soldiers, marine Jed Eckart (Chris Hemsworth) his brother Matt (Josh Peck), and a few other teenagers band together to take back their freedom and outrun the North Korean invaders.
The first time I heard about Red Dawn was when I watched the movie Looper in theaters and had seen the preview about it, which looked really good. However, despite it getting some negative reviews I still convinced myself to see this movie and didn't know if the remake was worth watching.
Chris Hemsworth was fit for the leading role as Jed, since he is good at playing a marine and has the looks of a handsome soldier.
The action scenes were well done, though it was too quick.

the days of our freedom

They want to kill us
and yet they disgust us
with their rules
we defy them
until we end

that caused us peril
till the Rebels save us all.
Yesterday was just the end
where our mood is filled with dread
and yet we won't resist
until we take our risks
of fighting for freedom
and saving our freedom.
We run out and shout
"We can take back what we want without a doubt!"
Yet they won't defeat us
unless we keep up.
We will brawl
until we fall
or the Rebels will save us all.

I've always prayed
that we never fail

right into the night
we'll always know.

Live or die...
