First we have the egg,
Where the little caterpillar grows.
Influenced, nourished, loved,
The beginning we all know.
The egg soon after hatches,
Revealing the baby caterpillar,
Breaking though its confines,
To show its true character.
Not yet fully developed,
The caterpillar grows.
Showing its affection,
Out into the world it goes.
Though the world is cold, cruel, sick,
There's a person that God sends,
Who never fails to care for you,
Your loyal, loving husband.
Together, as you face the world,
You stay in your cocoon of beliefs.
No Hell, hate, disgust, jail,
No crime and no theifs.
There comes a time in your life
Where you get older, wiser and life's won.
Though as it's coming to an end,
It's never truly done.
God sends his angels down to you,
And tells you that he needs you,
You love and say goodbye to your friends,
And for the first time, you flew.
So spread your wings and fly, butterfly,
God needs you by his side.
Up in the carefree clouds and sun,
You never truly die.

Scared, tired, cold, wet, and alone. I shiver in the dark, after looking for my lost mother I found a nearby cave and ran inside to get out of the wet rain, it started up out of nowhere too.
I shiver as I try to warm up my hands by slowly breathing into them and rubbing them against each other. I am only a 8 year old girl, I don't know much about the world, I don't know much about anything. I was scared and alone, in this unknown cave far out into the region in the middle of the night surrounded by strange noises and dangerous pokemon.
After listening for over an hour now the fear started to take over me and I started to cry and panic, I try to crawl further into the cave but to no avail, I hid my eyes into my scabbed knees from falling over earlier and cried for a long while. Thats until I heard a small noise, I can't explain the noise I heard, it sounded disorented and yet...playful? Curious? Sad...maybe?
I swallowed down my fear and slowly looked up, at first
Periphery II, by Periphery.Periphery II, by Periphery.3 years ago in Editorial More Like This
I am very excited today to be bringing this review to you all. It's been over two years since the last Periphery album, but before I dive into this monster, lets learn a little something about the band.
Periphery is a progressive metal band hailing from Maryland, USA. The band is mainly focused around the song ideas that sole member Misha 'Bulb' Mansoor writes and releases bit-by-bit beforehand, and then ultimately appearing later as a fully fleshed out track in actual Periphery full lengths or EP's. The band is one of the pioneering bands that coined the term 'djent' which is a tone that bands before Periphery used such as Meshuggah, and Sikth. This term is used for bands with very low end guitars, preferably 7 and 8-string guitars that incorporate these growling riffs and infectious grooves that will get some part of your body moving. Periphery take this sound, and add their own spin on it with some decent songwriting, incredible musicianship, as well as tone of other tric
Galaxy Garden, by Lone.Galaxy Garden, by Lone.3 years ago in Editorial More Like This
Ahh, electronic music. The possibilities of sound through manipulation is endless, creating emotions and states of mind solely on how human perceives it. Lovely idea, isn't it?
Enter Matt Cutler, a Nottingham music producer better known as Lone, and Galaxy Garden is his 5th LP. Now, Lone plays a style of footwork/juke music that is somewhat tropical and upbeat, despite being slathered in trance vibes. His music can be dropped into the 90's decade with his style of melody and tempo, with so much colorful work and amazing and shiny production, you'd think you were listening to a rainbow emanating from the reflection of a mirror. Bad comparison, but the music is such a great listen if you're a fan of footwork music.
The album shines heaviest when Cutler actually features other musicians on his music, namely Machinedrum, another outstanding footwork/juke producer, such as the track 'As a Child'. The synths are so dreamy with the mix of looped soothing guitar melodies and scrambling drum be

It has not been long since I returned to Equestria…since the darkness of Nightmare Moon was banished from me. A few years may seem long to one, but compared to a thousand years in exile, it feels like but a moment. Only a breath since I awoke from that nightmare. I awoke to a world far different than the one I had known so long ago. Perhaps in this world, I would find the love and acceptance I felt I had been denied.
The memories of that nightmare, as the queen of darkness, still haunt me. But there are bittersweet memories from before that time…They cause me pain as well. My elder sister has advised me to open up about them – perhaps it will bring me closure. And so it is that I write this tale.
It is the story of the dreamer.
A century ago, I ruled over the ponies of Equestria with my sister. Princess of the Night was my role. With it came many duties – the governing of the stars and moon, the partnered ruling over disputes and crimes in the

“Breathe, Gil. Just relax your muscles and breathe when you can.”
Gilbert slumped over as his body spasmed from his violent coughing. _____ spoke soothingly to him while she rubbed his back. She managed to lay him on his side on the bed, and she grabbed the wet washcloth from the nightstand and wiped his face. Although he was still coughing heavily, the relief on his face became visible as the cloth made contact with his cheeks. He reached out to something that wasn’t on the bed, which _____ had figured by now was his signal to get the trash can. She picked up the receptacle and held it near Gilbert’s face, gently massaging his back and shoulders as he vomited for the third time that day.
After he finished, _____ put the trash can back on the floor by the bed and wiped Gilbert’s mouth. She helped him lay down, rewetting the washcloth and running it across his face and neck. He looked paler than usual, and his breathing was
