the smell of citrus you bring, and your shirt on my floor.
sometimes i think about the spaces between your fingers and
the lines in your lips-
the way you laugh tickles my heart because then
your eyes sparkle like crystals in the sun.
sometimes you remind me of cherry blossom carpets and
the fresh rainforest smell.
you are more than what i deserve.
that pink stain you left on my pillow, those
harp-string lullabies you sang into my eyes-
they are reminders of how much you meant to me.
sometimes i wish for the melancholy of your eyes,
when i dream of past summers. my memories play on repeat:
thoughts of you, thoughts of you, thoughts of you.
time had stopped, right at the moment your eyes met mine,
and on the occasions i'm not crying into tea cups,
the world is the memory of your eyes and they way they smiled,
even when i didn't, like the last ray of light before the sun sets.
but your gaze will never fail to remind me
that i will always be a

Burdened with sorrow
I hoped for tomorrow
Man nor Woman could be trusted
I can't believe I lusted
Show me love
So I can trust
I admit my faults
Please don't let me fall
I cry out!
and you hear me
I pray now!
and you bless me
I lay it down
and you free me
I die now
and you renew me
I dwelt in the past
I tried to make it last
The future's now
No longer bound
You showed past's destruction
My future's Liberation
I found you
I'll praise you!
Renew me! Jesus.
You have set me free!
No longer depression's slave
I know you'll show me the way
In Jesus' name, Amen.

The Missionary's Drawing
His eyes are lingering on the bloodstained floor and he wonders just how much of it is left inside him. He should be afraid. In fact, it's what his captors want -- but he is holding fast to his faith. They demand him to refuse his Father's name. It infuriates them so for them to see him take strength in something they do not understand. Because, really, we most fear the things we cannot grasp. It's the unknown that scares a small child when he says there may or may not be a monster beneath his bed or hiding in the darkness. Not that there is one: That there may be. He can see the uncertainty in these men's eyes: There may be a God hiding somewhere and when He finds them, what happens then?
He doesn't hate them. He pities them. Each time they dunk his head under water or beat him with a whip, cut off his fingers, he prays for them. He prays that they be forgiven. They are ignorant, afraid, children in the shells of gruff men. They don't know what they're

You have to go out and make YOUR own.
The First HourI'm lying here, staring blankly at a barren ceiling. Emptiness fills my mind with thoughts of despair. The darkness of night is beginning to blanket the room. Obscurity, mocking me straight into my eyes and mind taking away the minuscule amount of happiness left over from another passing day.The First Hour5 years ago in Emotional More Like This
Really, where has life taken me? This moment was never in my plans. What is my purpose? No one has an ounce of trust in me. What should I do now? Reality seems to be such a cruel world to live in.
The first vicious battle has been won, but does the war ever end?
Now looking out a slightly frosted window I see a single star brightly glaring amongst a thinly clouded night sky. I am no longer alone in this sea of dejection. Light from a single star has ignited positivity in my mind and emotions.
Is this a new beginning? The dust of massive destruction is starting to clear. Am I born again? This is the first hour of a new life. Where shall I begin? Admissio

Part I - The Big Four: Exploring Plot Types
Before we start, it will be prudent to know what kind of plot you seek for your project. There are four main types that we will explore here:
- The character-driven plot.
- The event- or situation-driven plot.
- The world-driven plot.
- The concept- or theme-driven plot.
The character-driven plot is employed in stories that are propelled forward by the learning, changing character or characters. Harry Potter is an example of character-driven plot. I have one friend who is absolutely certain that this is the future of literature, because of the way we view and understand the human psyche.
The event-driven plot takes as its focus the events or chains of events that affect characters and the world in which the story is set. Choose-your-own adventure books are event-driven. Another example is Catch-22 by Joseph Heller, in which the absurd situations that arise out of the setting are the main focus of the novel and the charact

Heaven or HellHeaven or Hell3 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
There was a poll posted on Facebook, it was simple, all you had to do was click one answer or the other.
You only had two choices.
The question was: "Where do you think you're headed?"
The answer choices were: Heaven, and Hell.
A lot of people picked Heaven and there were people who voted Hell.
This made me sad to know that these people are condemning themselves.
When you say you're going to Hell, you're accepting something that isn't true!
If God set a Satanist free, If God sent his only son to die for us (even when we did not and still don't deserve it), and If God spoke into the darkness and created the light...
Then NOTHING is impossible for him!
The word impossible is a fallacy that hides the truth: I'm Possible!
Don't condemn yourself.
Doesn't matter what you did, God will still forgive you and let you into his kingdom,
you just have to stop putting yourself down all the time
If God forgave Hitler, Sodom, and Osama, yet they blew it, due to them choosing not to accept him and

Mas não reconheci nenhuma delas
Escutei-as por um longo segundo
E depois se calaram em suas celas
Deixaram seus ecos todas aquelas
Que já sofreram de um choque profundo
Essas serão sempre as vozes mais belas
Que caminharam neste mundo imundo
Todas as vozes, em celas trancadas,
Sujas, grotescas, perdidas, frustradas
Cantam gritando, sempre a dissonando:
"Não temos almas e nem corações,
Temos a lógica e nossas razões
E a leve impressão que o fim vem chegando."

Egypt The Silent Man and the Proud Man
When Turkey last came to his house, that breezy little palace in the oasis, he was so much different. He was ambitious, fiery, a stir-about, always talking about his new empire, how the two of them would one day, with no doubt, rule the entire world.
Egypt found his company quite entertaining and amusing, and of course Turkey reminded him of his father, Ancient Rome. They both had that powerful aura that made anyone and everyone submit before their will.
So why not play along, Gupta thought.
But now now he was different. For one thing, he did not come alone: he was accompanied by a young woman and a child; and whats more important, he was well, practically glowing of pride and happiness.
You seem different Egypt noted quietly as he poured his guests some hibiscus tea. Turkey was sitting on the biggest and most comfortable pillow, with the young and delicate-looking woma
