You, who picked me up when I fell down.
You, who took me in when I felt homeless.
You, who stood by me when I felt abandoned.
You, who makes me smile when I feel like I will never do so again.
You, who shared your house, warmth and kindness.
You are always my friend, even when I cannot always be yours.
It is you, who gives me hope for a better tomorrow.

De rode parapluElke ochtend om half negen zit er een meisje in de trein van nijmegen naar ’s hertogenbosch. Ze zit altijd in dezelfde coupé op precies dezelfde plaats, schuin tegenover mij. Als ik de trein in kom, zit ze er al. Ik kijk naar haar terwijl ik ga zitten. Ze draagt altijd dezelfde maagdelijk witte jas en heeft dezelfde bloedrode paraplu bij zich, een bleek gelaat. Ze ziet me niet terwijl ik naar haar kijk, haar niets ziende ogen staren naar buiten. Ik vraag me af waar ze aan denkt, en wat ze in haar gedachten voor zich ziet. Ik probeer haar blik te vangen, maar het is te vergeefs. Elke dag stapt ze uit bij dezelfde halte. Rosmalen. Ik blijf zitten en kijk haar na terwijl ze door het gangpad wegloopt en de trein uitstapt, haar paraplu gereed. Ik blijf kijken terwijl zij haar paraplu uitklapt en met snelle, kleine pasjes in de verte verdwijnt, haar paraplu hoog geheven. Ik hef mijn blik op om naar de hemel te kijken. De zon verblind me, er is geen wolkje te zien. Zo gaat het ieDe rode paraplu10 months ago in Short Stories More Like This

The gray furred lion cub noticed the concern in his companion's voice. They had been walking for a while now with Pride Rock close to being covered by the hills that surround it. The adults didn't really mind their kids exploring the outskirts of the land as long as they didn't venture too far off. Tamu wasn't planning on going that far anyway, he just wanted it to be a place where no one would bother the both of them. Him and Savannah.
Him and Savannah alone.
The thought suddenly made him shudder a bit. He thought this through, yes, but the idea still made him nervous. "Someplace far." he answered her vaguely.
"Are you sure that's a good idea?"
"Well it's not going to be that far and I know the way back, so it'll be okay." there was a sense of confidence in his voice yet also laced with uncertainty. Anything could happen in the places that were not closely guarded by the lions, and with the sky quickly shifting from its orange hues to pur

Simba paced back and forth in the green grass. He'd just seen Nala again for the first time in years, and he'd gotten in a fight with her.
"She's wrong." Simba tried to convince himself, "I can't go back." Crickets chirped but he paid no attention. After all the time he'd spent running from his past, how could he turn and face it, what good would it do anybody?
"What would it prove anyway?" He asked out loud, the grass flattened from his pacing. "You can't change the past!" He forced the often used excuse he had used so many times. His father, was gone, despite their promise.
"You said you'd always be there for me!" He yelled turning to the staring night sky, pain then shadowed his voice. " and it's because of me." Simba's head hung in pain, his main covering his agony. "It's my fault," he choked, "It's my fault." Simba sobbed, his hind legs collapsing to a sitting position.
Nala paced through the lush jungle, fuming, What had happened to the Simba she had grown

"So," Ferb asked while putting his arms casually around his wife as they watched the two children in the background quarreling, "how long do you think it is going to take for them to admit their feelings for each other."
Vanessa thought for a moment savoring the feel of her husband beside her. "Twenty bucks say before they are sixteen," she replied with a grin.
Thomas sighed, he didn't know what it was about the red-head that he found to be so infuriating or how she always seemed able to push all of his buttons. But yet, no matter how angry she may make him at times there was just something about her that caused him never to remain angry at her for too long.
"Hey Tommy," Marie greeted her best friend one sunny morning as she entered into the his backyard carrying a blue print as she found the burnet relaxing underneath a shady tree. "I know what we are going to do today."

The two cubs headed back to Chiku's den, sopping wet from their swim. Chiku was lying down at the entrance to the cave grooming her paws. Leah noticed Erevu and the other orphans walking away from Kopa's den, they seemed to be ok. Lisa and Leah headed over to Erevu. He had a few bruises and scratches and a little bit of egg gunk in his fur from his ostrich boxing, but other than that, he was fine.
"See ya later, Eggman!" the other orphans called to him and headed for their dens. Erevu glared at them.
"Don't call me that!" he shouted back. Lisa looked at him.
"What did the alpha say to you?" she asked him. Erevu shrugged.
"Oh the usual stuff, that what we did was extremely foolish, blah, blah, if we set another toe out of line there will be consequences, and so on." He replied. Lisa giggled.
"You always have a way of getting on his nerves." Lisa snickered. Erevu laughed half heartedly, and looked at Leah.

Most of the lionesses were out on the hunt that morning. The only ones at the dens were the younger cubs and the babysitting lionesses. The older cubs were being trained on how to take care of themselves and how to hunt. Chiku was a mother herself, a first time mother. Her cub was with the other young ones.
The lioness climbed up the cliffs to the largest one above. She made it to the rocky ledge and walked to the big gaping mouth of the cave. Chiku put down the cub at the cave entrance.
"Hello?" she called. Her voice echoed throughout the cavern. Paw steps echoed deep in the cave. They stopped just before the light that reached into the cave, so the figure was still shrouded in a veil of darkness.
"Who is it? Why are you here?" a deep voice boomed from the shadows. Chiku struggled to keep her composure.
"Sir, it's me, Chiku, on my watch, I found something on the banks of the river." She answered. A dark silhouette came closer to the light, but not close eno

The young Indian girl removed her hands from over her eyes. She looked around the yard and realized that her friends were nowhere in sight. "Wow!" she exclaimed. "I can't see any of you!"
"That's the idea," giggled the voice of her friend Marie. "Now you have to catch us!"
Jasmine listened to the grass rustle as her four invisible friends spread out. She shook her head. "Whose idea was it to play extreme Marco Polo, anyway?"
"Yours," answered the voice of Thomas Fletcher.
Comfortably out of her friend's sight, little Marie Flynn adjusted the invisibility goggles on her face. The goggles were designed that, when worn over the eyes, would make you invisible to everyone else. Right now, she and her cousins Thomas, Xavier, and Fred were wearing them, while their friend Jasmine Rai was "it."

It's just a four letter word,
It can cause so many great things,
Happiness, or maybe more love,
It can create sadness,
Those four letters can create the world.
Any emotion you have ever felt,
Can come forth from love.
Seeing the other one smile,
Hearing their voice,
Seeing that person happy with someone else,
That sweet pain,
Only four letters.
But no matter which color you are, or race, or gender,
We will all experience Love one day,
Or just sweet.
We will all have that feeling one morning.
We all deserve to feel it one day,
To shout it out,
No matter which color we are, or race, or gender,
Or which color, race or gender we like.
Those four letters,
Those four words,
We all deserve to speak.
"I'm in love."

Jealousy screaming in my dreams: "Fine! Go be with them! I don't care! Go be best friends with them! You only talk about them anymore!"
Loneliness is haunting me: "You never talk to me anymore. You didn't comment last time. You didn't comment a lot of last times."
Guiltiness strikes my heart with his arrows: "I hurt you, I deserve this, I deserve all of this. I don't deserve your friendship. I couldn't be the way you wanted me to be. It's all my own damh fault."

The beauty of scienceWhen your mirror is cracked,The beauty of science2 weeks ago in Free Verse More Like This
Your image distorted,
Just know one thing:
When their gaze follows you,
When their whispers hurt bad,
Just remember one thing:
When the future is grey,
The present dull,
And the painful past is catching up on you,
Just know one thing:
Because no matter if you believe
In JHWH, Allah, Jesus, or any entity for that matter,
Or if you believe in science,
Agree on me with one thing:
Because, if we just take science for now:
You are built up out of cells.
These cells are built up out of molecules,
Molecules out of protons, neutrons, electrons.
In your body there are just the right amount of tiny particles
To make you human.
You are human. With just the slightest mix-up,
You could've been a potato,
But you're not, you're human.
And that in itself makes you a miracle of nature.
And now, if you have time,
Google DNA, or meiosis, or mitosis.
Read the articles about it. Stuff like this is going on

I'll be okay." Zira shook her head. "Zira, listen to me! I will be okay! I will! I swear, you can leave me, I have to be okay! I can't marry you if I'm dead!" Though the words held double meaning, she nodded and raced off. "Bakkar, STOP!" Another lone hyena bounced up. "Drop him. Unless you are the meal I serve the clan." The female's words held a threat, and Taka hit the ground. "Attacking children! Gracious, what is wrong with you?" She seemed annoyed that this had happened, then took a look at Taka. "GRACIOUS, honey, I gotta get you home quick." A furious stare at the male hyena made him shake. "Come." She gently picked up the prince, and the two carried him to his home.
