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.
Wounded (ArminxReader) One-ShotEren Jaeger is dead…..Wounded (ArminxReader) One-Shot1 year ago in Drama More Like This
Swallowed up by a titan...
But he did it to save Armin.
You were fighting in the district of Trost alongside Eren, Armin, and Mikasa. Eren and Mikasa were powerful fighters whom you didn’t have to worry about. Armin on the other hand was a different story. The young man was controlled by his fear. Him joining the squad was an act of bravery however when he came face to face with a titan, he paled and his eyes widened in terror. That’s why when he told you that he joined the squad, you joined soon right after. There was no way that you were going to allow Armin to go on fighting without protection.
He was dear to you so even when both Eren and Mikasa reassured you that they’d watch over him, you needed to be there by his side in every battle. You too had been terrified by the titans but over time you became indifferent towards them. In order to protect Armin, you needed to not let emotions like fear and sadness control

No, not who you were expecting,
But look, I'm smiling, for me
I'm no one pretty, I'm sorry
my smile turns others down
and what sad face I have- they say
Until now it never bothered me- not too much!
But hello again,
I haven't seen you in what seems like an eternity
Do you remember?
We used to sit over there- that's right!
That patch of grass and wildflower, the
swing set we'd sit on at night as children,
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.
But hello again, hello.
I see you're happy, with her. Not me.
And hello again, why don't you look at me
like you used to?
Like you.. used to.
We'd talk about a family and children- when we were children!
But of course we knew nothing of what or how it actually-

Sometimes things don't work out.
And sometimes they do.
And sometimes it seems like they will work for the last time

Until they just come back and in the heat of desperation, manifest

you're back at square one.
Sometimes you're stronger than othertimes..

sometimes I think you could do well to know that I'm here too.

Confessions of a King
I have a small confession,
One I would like to make,
If I don't make it here and now,
I'm afraid my heart will break.
So come! Sit here, just listen,
Because, see here is the thing,
What I'm about to tell you...
Are the confessions of a king.
You what? You don't believe me?
Well... I just don't know what to say,
No I will never kill you
That... was my Fathers way
I'm sure that you remember,
From when you were very young
The loyal freedom writers
Who one by one were hung,
What? No! How could you say that!
This was not at all my rule!
I wish I could have helped but,
I was a young and frightened fool
And now the heavy burden
of a crown rests on my head
I just hope I can do better
for this is where my dreams have lead
I know it may seem easy
But infact that's not the case
I swear I'll try my hardest
and do the best for human race
I have a small confession,
One I would like to make,
I'll tell yo
The sad idea about art thieves.“Making art is like having a child, it takes time to mature and to show to the world.The sad idea about art thieves.2 years ago in Editorial More Like This
You have people who praise it, and to congratulate you. And the people who envy you for such creativity.”
It’s never easy doing art, you must protect it at all costs. But when someone steals your art, it would be far too late. You art child would be tortured, poorly changed and yet still recognizable, and even forced to be looked at by many people, just because someone wanted to be popular or make a profit.
Your art child would be crying, screaming for help from its original parents. Yet no matter how many times you tried to rescue the art child, the “police” won’t do anything about it.
If this ever happened to you. Please, let the thief know what he/she is doing. Stealing your child from you, torturing the poor thing, and using it for illegal or selfish reasons.

Silver knew it was wrong as he had a wife, but the moment he met you, he fell in love with you. He couldn’t describe that feeling. But he was sure it wasn’t love at first sight.
You two met on a cold rainy night. You had lost your keys and you needed a warm place to stay for the night. That was when the young man with long red hair and sharp grey eyes offered you to stay the night with him and his wife. You refused at first, not wanting to disturb them, but he insisted, so you finally accepted. He seemed delighted, despite his fierce expression.
Unlike Silver, his wife despised you the moment she first saw you. She didn’t like how your (colour) hair shined even without a glimpse of sunlight, how your (colour) eyes sparkled with numerous emotions, how your angelic voice could make any man’s heart melt. She hated you from head to toe and in and out.
You didn’t see Silver since then until a month passed. Your next encounter with him was when you were both stu

The time for shadows to come from their deepest corners of the darkest and prey on the minds of the weak and innocent. It was the time for the spirits of the night to claim the pitch black day as their own.
You were one of those shadows.
When the sun went down, it was time for you to play. Stealthily, you would sneak into the homes of those who were rich and stole item upon item of priceless heirlooms, never leaving a trace.
So how did you find yourself in this situation
It had all started so simple, sneak into the house, disarm the security system, steal the jewels, and be gone.

"What is it this time?" You say questioningly, unsure whether to be on guard on not.
"The Host Club is having a DANCE!" He exclaims excitedly.
"A dance, huh? Sounds interesting!" You sigh in relief.
"It's gonna be SPECTACULAR!" He yelled as his fist pounded the air, the other arm still draped over your shoulder. Then he suddenly calms himself.
