Sophisticated Little CatPounce and look you little catSophisticated Little Cat4 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
childlike as you go.
I know you know I see you
where ever you may go.
Don’t throw me off with cuteness
or simply look and stare.
I’ll feed you once,
but not for brunch.
“Stop it! There’s no food in there!”
You look inside the cabinet.
You look outside the hall.
You ponder simply
“Meow, meow, meow?”
And then you simply fall.
Caught by cute expression
I bend and pet your tummy.
Delighted is my hand.
Delighted is your belly.
You purr and purr for hours.
I forget time has passed.
And than I feed you dinner.
Quite simply, at last.

‘Take my words and write me a song,
A song that will thrive an eon long,
And when that eon’s fashion be gone
Write me a song once more’
The words of a selfish young prince were these,
As horrid a man as he had to be
As bloodthirsty a man as whose rivals did flee,
As cruel as he was, but no more
Prince regent, once king, was this young boy
Surname of Corral, first of Troy
The subject, once, of a murderous ploy
Now he finds himself Prince Troy no more
‘Despite all the rumours so widely spread,
About the protection placed on my head,
I know for a truth that I’ll soon be dead,
So write me a song in four’

Kendra Shepard watched Captain Anderson pace down the line of enlisted men and women that made up the Normandy's new crew. His voice, as age-lined as his face, clamped down on the requisite welcome-to-the-ship-now-shape-up speech. His tone and careful mannerisms, along with his service record, gave him an air of command that reminded Shepard of her fatherkind, patient, and eternally unflappable, even when somebody's busted artery was spraying blood in his face and the front lines were getting closer and closer to his triage zone. His speech finished, Anderson stared down the ranks of servicemen assigned to the new ship.
A voice over the intercom interrupted the severity of his silence. "ETA to Eden Prime four hours, captain."
"Understood. Keep me posted."
"Aye aye. Enjoy training the Padawans." The comm clicked off.
She must have raised an eyebrow or gave a hint

What If...Everyone wants to believe that they are special. Having magical powers, being long lost royalty, the Chosen Hero to save the day/world, being from another world, or being something more than human. There are endless possibilities if one has enough imagination. The truth of the matter is, everyone wants to believe that they have irreplaceable worth, and they do. It's just that they can't see it. See that whether they are just human or something completely Other, every person is different, and every one of them has worth.What If...4 months ago in Philosophical More Like This
This said, There are those of us who simply wish to be like everyone else. To be normal. To be human. To be accepted. Most people forget in their fantasies that being different can be scary. People might try to hurt them because they are afraid of anyone different from them. Of anyone or anything they don't understand. People can be cruel, and merciless. Death, torture, endless taunting, mocking, bullying, and being ostracized are just a few of the possible things that

a heroine;a female
not of impeccable morals
or overwhelmingly youthful beauty
No! She should be flawed -
Wild and a bit feral
She should win your heart, your loyalty
for being utterly human, and lovingly fallible.

Seem to need an answer to everything.
Even when there is something magical
That shouldn't be explained.
Like the stars
And the brilliance of the sun.
I hope there are more people like me
Who want to feel the beauty in things
Instead of see it.
Like the old saying goes:
Seeing isn't believing
Believing is seeing
I hope there are people who don't explain beauty.
People who enjoy it.
And when asked "why?"
Aren't afraid to smile and say
"Think about it."
Hate Crime/Discrimination Against Autistics If you’ve ever read or watched X-Men, you may have noticed that normal people treated the superhero team with such hatred and discrimination because of their mutant powers—Wolverine with his retractable claws; Cyclops with his optic energy beam; Jean Grey with her telepathy and telekinesis; Storm with her meteorological manipulation; I suppose you know the rest—they wanted either to kill them or have scientists create a vaccine that would rid the heroes of their extraordinary abilities for good. In the real world, society displays that same hatred and disrespect towards people with autism. Just like the X-Men, most autistics have advantages that normal people lack: high IQs, encyclopedic knowledge of certain subjects, and the ability to maintain focus on tasks for long periods of time. Unfortunately, many people see autism and the traits that come with it as an abnormality that they invest all their time and moneyHate Crime/Discrimination Against Autistics4 months ago in Academic Essays More Like This
RosebushIf I were to tell you,Rosebush3 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
"Life is not a bed of roses."
Would you still continue
To pull the weeds from beneath the rows?
If I said,
"There are some wounds that cannot heal.",
Would you still reach between the brambles
And allow the thorns to pierce your skin?
Were I to mention,
"Even the brightest of flowers
Will eventually succumb to time."
Would you still cut the heads
In preparation for the new spring buds?
You simply smile and say;
For even the most vapid vine deserves to be cultivated.
Only then can it bloom
And truly enjoy its time in the sun."

Social statusEveryone says howSocial status4 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Important things are.
From money to marriage to love to hate to everything in between.
But we're just
Kids with paper crowns
Standing on thrones made of clouds
Little kids that
Tape up their ideas in little shoeboxes and sail them out to sea.
Little things like that don't matter.
Think people are gonna care how much you make in heaven?
Is there even one?
So why do you do this?
Belittle others, belittle yourself.
We're all just kids staying up past curfew hoping to not get caught, just putting in that extra minute on something we love.
Why distinguish? What's your game?
What's different? We're all the same.
So it's time you realise that
You in your
And me in my
We're not so different.
Just wrapped up with different paper.
But inside we're all dreamers.
Birds waiting to fly.
