No Free LunchesIt was mid-afternoon when James headed out for a long walk through the woods. Though a boy of only ten, he was often allowed to roam once his chores were done. Of course, however, he had no cares for what he was "allowed" to do. "My chores will get done," he muttered to himself as he slipped off the property, "when they get done. That's that." He wandered for quite some time, playfighting with branches, throwing rocks at birds, and having adventures in the woods. In short order, he realised that the sun was beginning to set. "I should get home," he told himself. "It will surely be dinnertime soon." Quickly, he turned on his heel, and began back to his house. Given time, though, darkness settled over the woods, and he quickly became aware of just how lost he was. He began to hustle more and more, then jog, then eventually begin sprinting, desperately hoping to reach home, when he met with what he believed to be his house; a sturdy, two-storey red brick building, with a flower garden pla

Vermin crawling, for nothing but fortune and fame
Are we all just one and another?
Grabbing the world, taking all to smother
Are we all just one and nothing?
Forgetting the truest meaning of all loving
The tap is leaking, it's soon to run out
The clock is ticking, it's soon to count down
All too soon.

Only gentle reveries, to soothe the mind
Soldiers marching, breaks the silence
Not proclaiming peace, but bringing violence
We will escape, I know it's true
We will escape, with all of you
Escape this life, of death, of fear
Escape this life, to skies so clear
To a place where freedom is always free
'Cross rolling plains and blue seas
Where the birds sing
Of a life worth living
We are Children of War

Will you live by staying on your knees?
Or will you die standing on your feet?
Will you make your life known?
Will you bite the hand that feeds you?
Or will you eat what you're fed?
Will you protect those you love?
Will you stand up to the darkness, make the world better?
Or will you stand idly by in your luminous globe of ignorance?
Will you rise above?
Will you end the chaos, will it away?
Or will you facilitate it, by letting it stay?

My world was black and white and red all over. Her jet black hair, her snow white teeth and her crimson red lips, along with the scarlet liquid that dripped from her mouth. The liquid didnt seem to stain her teeth, nor blend with the shade of her lips. That is when I noticed what she was. That is when I noticed who she was. Me, and this was the destiny calling me.
I woke shaking, everything felt so surreal. It was just a dream. I whispered to myself, then I turned to see my sisters bed empty, then I looked to my apparent alarm clock. It read, 7:29am, in it neon red hatred toward me. Fuck, was the only thought that past through my head. I threw the blankets over the bed and got out. Stretched, and then began running around to get ready to go to school. I was supposed to of left by now if I wanted to meet Eric at the coffee shop before

Is it wrong that I think she’s hot?
Ask me a question – I’m not mute.
Is this wrong? Of course it’s not.
Why should I care if I like a guy?
Why should I care if I like a chick?
I think I love him – don’t know why.
It’s time to party – I’ll take my pick.
I love his hair, his boyish smile,
I like her eyes, the way she winks.
I’m in his arms – come dance awhile,
I’m happy, who cares what society thinks.
I feel his chest, the soft tender skin,
Her cheeky grin, her tongue on my lips.
I’m safe with him – I’m lost within,
The flick of her hair, the sway of her hips.
I’m a bisexual; I know it’s hard,
For you to admit I’m not like you.
Society’s disapproval left me scarred,
So get out – it’s time you flew.
I’ve loved a lass,
And I’ve loved a guy,
My heart shattered like glass,
So I guess again I’ll try.

Eyes still blurry, I woke with a thousand thought pulsing through my brain. Did it actually disappear? Or did I just blank out? Or did I blank out because it disappeared? Those were only a few of the several hundred questions. I sat up, realizing my bed was just four plastic chairs and my backpack as a pillow. I planted my feet firmly on the ground, but I was not ready to stand up yet. I looked at my shoes, almost not uniform because of the white wing of Nike on the side of each of them. What the fuck happened to me? I accidentally say out loud to myself.
You fainted. Most students do on the first day she said motioning with her glasses in her hand to the 4 or 5 freshman students on lying on chairs, not even looking up from the computer screen. Most of them in front of the class while telling there names, Its very unlikely we get someone who faints who has been in the school for two previous years

Considering we had no idea where to look, we had just been wondering around at nine oclock at night trying to find these ghosts. We had made it back to the church parking lot near my neighbourhood and I was ready to give up, it was already dark and I wasnt quite confident that there was no monster lurking around the corner anymore. There was still one more place Zak had suggested we look, the cemetery, as cliché as he thought it was it wouldnt hurt to try. One last place, I thought to myself but my body was telling me to sleep and my brain was trying to comprehend everything that had happened in under twenty-four hours. I was still confused with everything that had happened; nothing seemed to add up properly. Can you be in two places at once? I question Zak, as we wonder through the cemetery.
Not that I know of, why?
Well you were in Erics body, but you were talkin
