are similar to the people on Earth
Forced to stay in one general sprouting spot
Stuck there until they wither and die
The leaves fall off the tree
flittering in the wind to the ground
letting themselves wither and be one with the ground
Humans form onto the Earth
and wait years and years until they finally wither
and fall to the ground them selves
becoming one with the ground when buried
In a way
The Earth is a tree
and humans are the leaves
Living their life
in a gathering of their sprouting area
and end up in the ground
and letting the next generation

That girl who is always smiling and laughing
The one who always has the advice
The one who always knows...
How to bring a smile to someone's face.
She always looks so happy
Like as if her life is perfect
Like as if everything is bright in her world.
But nobody knows
That at night
After a call with her father
Who lives so, so, so far away
She cries herself to sleep.
She sleeps with a broken heart
Tears stain her cheeks and her pillow
Her father is the most dearest to her
And he's so far away
She can't smell the familiar scent he has
Of After-Shave and spice
Just thinking about the divorce
Has her body shakingwith sobs
Nobody knows that this perfectly happy girl
Had suffered through,
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
And yet she still smiles...

Chapter 1- Entering the Blacksmith's
The well known hero, Sonic the hedgehog eventually arrives at the Blacksmith's, with the legendary sword Caliburn in hand. Upon their arrival, they are soon greeted by the Blacksmith, or "Smithy", who looks very familiar to Sonic somehow.
SONIC: Hey, Tails! Buddy, is that you?... Nah, that must be the Smithy, right?
BLACKSMITH: It sure is. Welcome, Sir knight!
CALIBURN: He is no knight... At least, not yet he isn't.
SONIC: Hmph, says you!
BLACKSMITH: What a magnificient sword! I've never seen one that talks before!
SONIC: Oh it talks all right...
BLACKSMITH: Please, come in...
They go inside, blissfully unaware that a mysterious character also enters the Blacksmith's- He wears nothing but black with a few shades of cobalt blue, his facial features are completely hidden in a dark hood and sfarf wrapped round his mouth, and he has two spectacular blades in their scabbards, waiting to be used.

In this Land of Confusion,
You always helped us control The Animal inside us.
I am able to see through the Blood in My Eyes,
And take in the Perfect Insanity I live in.
Even though I am Overburdened and almost Dehumanized,
I still say a Prayer to help me Remember
The Innocence the world once had.
This Parasite causes The Infection known as Fear.
In The Night the Sickened and the Haunted come out to play.
They escape the Asylum of Hell and Stupify many.
You go undercover and form the Façade of those of Darkness,
And the Criminals get Crucified, and sink into Decadence.
When the time comes for the sun to Rise, you sink back into the Divide between Two Worlds.
We are the Sons of Plunder,
Forsaken by Voices of supposed reason.
We wait to be Awaken by the Want of a Warrior,
As we raise our Ten Thousand Fists in the air.

Jason was yelling from the top of the cliff, trying to direct Piper and Leo to the top where he was currently giving directions.
"Easy for you to say!" Piper yelled. The only reason they were climbing this stupid thing was because of the daily drills that Chiron wanted the demigods to complete for the next few weeks. Everyone hated them, but they figured that it was for the best. They were going to be in a huge war and if training was going to help them in any way, they'd do it.

Sammi has just arrived at her new house minutes after the movers have driven away. As she unlocks the front door and steps inside, she notices that the moving guys have done their job, more or less. She gasps as she looks around at all the boxes in piles in the otherwise unfurnished house. Yes, they have packed up all of her stuff from the old house as she had instructed them. And, at first glance, they seem to have labeled all the boxes, also as instructed. She starts to walk towards one pile of boxes in the corner of the living room. Picking up one small box, she rotates it to find the label, and sure enough, it does have one. Then she holds it closer to try to read the label, because the writing is so small.
