As a Mormon..I know that I am not perfect but what am I supposed to strive for?As a Mormon..6 years ago in Biography & Memoir More Like This
As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints I believe that we are here to be tested.
We are given difficulties and are pressed to show our steel against the temptations of the world.
Whether it be addictions that enslave our bodies and therefore our soul, or if it is just the pride and foolishness that brings us to stray from what is right.
There are many Christian people in this world who will say that they are righteous and that they do all they can to be good but they are the also considered some of the least moral people on earth.

Ok, the dragon has the fair maiden in his cave. The opening is just barely big enough for the dragon to fit making it easier for it to guard. Then the knight got an idea.
I could climb the cliffs above the cave where I would prepare a trap out of logs. Then when the dragon came out I would release the logs and squish the dragon. B

BorrowedShe slipped into borrowed grief like a sweater, one spun of fallacies and half truths that she could shed again at a moment's notice. It was a simple thing, as thoughtless as breathing, to shield herself from the bitter lack of attention. Collecting condolences like burning embers to warm herself when she was alone, she pulled them out in secret and examined them, thrilling just a little in the duplicity of it all.Borrowed1 year ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

Over the weekend, I’ve heard the word thrown more than once in my direction. It’s well-earned, I know. For years, ever since I first held a camera, I’ve loved to take shots of people I know- and even those I don’t- in unguarded moments. A laugh as they talk with friends. Just walking across the room. Dancing with their other half. Bending over and cooing at a friend’s newborn. I just love those pictures.
Of course, because they’re taken unaware, people object. I guess they see the camera as invading on private moments- even when it’s not exactly “private”. I can understand&hel

It was awkward.
This familiar space - the smells of caffeinated drink and the sounds of idle chatter...only now there was a wash of calming pop music or something pouring from the speakers, a gentle background to all this. The Jasmine Dragon just didn't feel right in this way, from this place - on a chair at a table and not on that stage.
All the more difficult and confusing was the presence of Aang and Katara in this same location. Why were they here? This was here place. They weren't ever supposed to be here. Why had they agreed to meet here, of all places? And what was goi
The Hyperactive Sleep Disorder - P1 Arwen wasn't quite sure what was going on that day when she arrived at the old beat down mansion, clutching a ragged folder to her chest. Everything seemed like a scene or plot from some old horror movie. Thunder rolled in the distance from a storm long past, and the old mansion stood before her, silently sitting but not really creepy to be honest. Arwen had been given this mansion by a man who had apparently lived a very long time and spent every year of his life living in the giant manor. After he died, Arwen received a knock on her door telling her that this man, whom she had not been related to in any way, had left this entire mThe Hyperactive Sleep Disorder - P110 months ago in Short Stories More Like This

It wasn't much of a sight from a distance, or at first really, for that matter. During the day when the sun glared off of the windows of the office buildings nearby, when it illuminated the sky scrapers and towers, the opera halls and the malls, the little coffee shops and the big ones, this little shop toy shop seemed insignifigant. During the day you could see its windows were a bit grimy around the edges and the window itself was hard to see through. Inside was badly lit and it was nearly impossible to make out what was on the inside. It seemed cold and abandoned and you had to put a hand over your eyes, to

Pale, white skin, just like snow
Forever it entices them so
I'm not quite sure why they feel
For I know that you're not real
Soft and long, dark black hair
A large skull helmet is what you wear
They see you only in their mind
And yet they feel your tight bind
Large emerald eyes of green
Though you never prim nor preen
On those pages they see you
I wonder if others feel that too
With your sword with hilted eye
With your tears, though you don't cry
I watch you move, and I don't see
Why they stare; why they scream
And at your neck, your Hollow hole
So masses pledge to you their soul's
The four on your chest, they wish to touch

As thou art the reason that I write.
Always a season for much fear,
It is one that I hold dear.
Once we lit fires to keep away demons;
Now we act upon creepy compulsions.
All Hallowe's Evening is now compressed
Into something shorter as ages progressed,
Now it is called Hallowe'en-
The best holiday there has ever been.

She looked around at some of the people there, when something caught her eye. It wasn't a very safe neighborhood, and it seemed like one of the gangs was picking on a small, shivering boy. "They don't care who they hurt, do they?", she said angrily, standing up and walking over to the ally way where the boy was probably getting mugged.
Thugs surrounded him, beating him mercilessly, leaving scars and bruises on every inch of his frail body.

But how could this lead,

By your peaceful head,

You believed in death's peace,
We'd have a new start,
But all you left me

That he's the one who knows me best.

Your wisdom like the great old forests,
You are an elf a child of the undying light and the forever earth.
