What is Love? When all is Hate.
What once was a peaceful dream so
Lucid, so daring, so bold!
Now but remnants of a past-to-be-forgotten, I’m told.
As a child, I knew not of you,
What was false, or on the other hand, true
As eyes turn on me, cold,
You alone take me in your arms and hold
On to what is left of a little girl who never made it out
Of that dream to be forgotten.
I thought things were forever
Dare I say anything could die, for that was never.
But life is a funny thing, you know?
You believe so strongly in Now that when you look back..
Now was only Then and then you thought things were perfect
But as it passed, your view collapses. It shatters. Like a cracked window,
The view you saw, now distorted. Contorted. Deformed. Horrific.
I still believe in you. Even though all that has come to past has been nothing but true
And true it is, true with all the evil life could do
Though I look at you now, through seemingly flawless

looking up to the stars- we'd talk about
how one day when we'd fall asleep forever, we'd be among those too.
I would be a star smaller than yours but we'd be stars together, and
you and I would have our special place, in the sky.

"Hey Em!" He said happily.
You guys talked for a while about how he was doing, how the different cities were, and all the boys said hello to you. Then Louis finally got to what he was going to tell you.
"Ok, so babe, I told someone to put something in your mailbox for me. Can you go get it?" He asked.

But to him it wasn't that much of a bother.
He found a stone when in the Spine,
Little did he know that it was a great sign.
But the king got wind of what had become,
And Eragon knew he couldn't succumb.
The egg soon hatched, and a dragon was born,
He told not his family, for they would have sworn.
The Ra'zac soon came, in search of the pair,
But to their dismay, the two were not there.
Angered, the Ra'zac reeked hell on his house,
While Eragon hid with his friend, like a mouse.
He dug for his uncle, and Saphira helped too,
But, they discovered, there was nothing to do.
With Saphira the dragon, he and Brom fled,
While deep in his heart, the boy mourned for the dead.

If he had been just a storyteller alone.

But friendships like that, he couldn't have bought.

The pale brown tom was small, miniscule compared to his surroundings; although, if you looked closer, his round face was cupped with the edge of youth, his bright blue eyes glinting with happiness and amusement, even though he seemed to be going throughout his everyday duties.
He paused in a patch of stray sunlight, the line of ginger that traced along his spine to his nose showing prominently as he yawned and stretched. Dropping the squirrel he held in his jaws gently on the ground, he licked his paw and drew it across his face, cleaning his whiskers.
A giggle high above him made him look up.

In this world people are depending on each other, there are nearly to no things which you still have to do on your own. Ironically, people depend on each other, but they also put themselves on first place constantly. Life is a process. You find yourself new and anew all the time, until you're old, and have children and grandchildren.
This being said, we should accept ourselves how we are. We should see who we are, where we see ourselves and who we want to be. We should honour the ones who have long passed away, but have contributed so much to our world. - because everything we see and use in our today's world would never be exisiting if the humans didn't work together. We should also accept the fact that we are here to contribute something to this world, and we should think ahead into the future. What will be and what our contribution will help the world.
