I prefer to call it a choice, because I like to be different. Maybe that's why most of my friends are oftentimes five years younger than I am. Though it doesn't matter to me, I relate to them better than the popular people my age anyway.
As a nineteen year-old, I prefer video games and LEGOs to skateboards and cars. But today I'll be putting aside my electronic entertainment devices in favor of some good old fashioned quality time with Mother Nature.
At least I hope.
Walking into the hallway with my bags packed, I hear mom and dad 'debating' at the other end of the house. I already know what it's about.
“Chillax mom.” I stride into the hallway, trying to radiate some sort of confidence. “I got this.”
“Do you?” She looks back, s

Chapter 3: Conflict.
I woke up and looked around, my head was throbbing. Ugh!, what happened? I wonder how long Ive been asleep. I mumbled to myself. Oh, only about an hour or so. Oh, ok thanks. I said, all of a sudden I realized that someone was talking to me. I whirled around. Whos there! Show yourself!
I heard chuckling, and looked over at Latias and she broke into hysteria. HAHAHAA! Oh, you should see yourself right now! HAHA! I heard that voice in my head! And it seemed like it was coming from Latias! Wh-whats going on?! Do I have telepathy or something now? What did you do?! I asked, Yes, yes you do. Latias was still chuckling. Well how did I get it? She pointed to my chest. What? I looked down at the hole in my shirt and saw the crystal embedded into my chest. WHOA! HEY WAIT A MINUTE! WHAT DID

The next day I woke up and was greeted by the sound of WHOOOOO! Yes Im awake Latias. I said, as she promptly started cooing and nuzzling me. "This is so cool! Shes like a really big pet! I looked at her again. No, theres no way that I can call her a pet. Shes a friend, she doesnt act like a pet. Shes just acts way too human to be a pet. I thought as I looked her wounds over. Wow! Youve healed a lot for only one night! I exclaimed as I examined her bandages. I bet pretty soon that youll be able to fly again!
She stared at me blankly for a second and then promptly broke the silence with, LAHT-IAS!! Well, my third day of camping and Ive already made a very interesting friend. It suddenly struck me that perhaps I wouldnt be able to keep her with me. Whatll happen when she

I screamed as I dropped the Lasyrblades and rushed over to her. I didnt care if anybody tried to shoot me as well, Latias was all that mattered at that moment.
LATIAS! LATIAS SAY SOMETHING!! I yelled repeatedly as I put my left hand under her head to support it and my right hand over her neck. Just trying to keep her sitting up.
Then my right hand felt something. Something wet. I lifted it up and looked. And there was blood all over it.
No No! NOOOO!!! I screamed out. I looked back at Latias, and her eyes slowly looked over at me.

Oh my gosh! You did?! Latias was excited beyond belief by now. Whoa there! Easy Latias! I said as I pulled my hands out of hers before her bobbing up and down excitedly ripped them off.
What was it like?! Did you find anything?! Was there anybody there?! Tell me! I just stared at her. What in the world has gotten into you Latias?! Ive NEVER seen you this excited.
She slowed down and finally took a breath. Well, I just wanted to know what Crystoldia was like. She said. All Ive ever known about it was rumors and the tiny, not very informative tidbits that have been passed down over time.
I see. I mused. Well, I can say it was shiny. VERY shiny! I then realized it was a mistake to tell her that. Her eyes grew big and th

I stared in disbelief. Mewtwo?! I exclaimed. Mewtwo floated up and landed on the platform.
What may I ask, is the reason for this calling Aggrus? He telepathically asked. We have some unusual visitors. Aggrus replied.
Mewtwo looked over at Latias and I. Latias?! Your safe! He exclaimed as he rushed over to her. I could tell from everyones reaction that he wasnt the type to normally act like this.
Latias hugged him. Yes, yes Im back Mewtwo then realized that everyone was staring and composed himself. I feared that we would never see you again. He said.
He then looked over at me. And who is this? He said, I noticed him staring at me. I know youre reading my mind Mewtwo.

Chapter 7: New Toy.
I woke up earlier than usual. Then promptly became bored, which is usually what happens when I wake up too early. So I decided to look through my art binder for fun. As I looked, I came across a picture I had drawn of several sword-like weapons that I always thought would be fun to have. Lasyr Blades, as I had named them. I had designed them as like an all-purpose weapon/tool. You could funnel blasts of energy from them, slice stuff with them, and my personal favorite. Put them together and ride them like a sharp-edged flying surfboard. But I knew that it wasnt feasible, or was it?
All of a sudden I pulled out a piece of paper and started scribbling down and working out all sorts of different numbers, measurements and equations. And I continued like that for several hours, until Latias woke up.
Hmm? Brad? Where are you? She looked aro

I rolled on the ground weeping uncontrollably. How could they take her from me?!?! I pounded the ground with my fist some more.
All of a sudden I came to my senses. I might be able to follow them! I thought as I jumped on the Lasyrboard and flew up into the sky.
But then the thought hit me. They would have left hours ago, and I didnt know which way to go. They could be anywhere right now.
I started to cry again. Latias Why ? I slapped myself and decided that I couldnt just stay there crying like a baby. I headed home to check the internet for whatever I could find on the circus.

Latias and I ran around playing all day. Though it didnt feel right to me. I felt as if I should be somewhere, helping someone. I felt guilty for playing when I had a job to do, a purpose to fulfill.
Latias must have noticed this, cause she stopped me. Brad, whats wrong? I just looked down.
I dont know Latias. I said. I feel like Im shirking my duties, my responsibilities as the Guardian of Crystoldia in doing just that. Guarding Crystoldia. Not to mention we just left the Resistance there by themselves. And now were playing around while their lives are in danger.
Latias held put her hands on either side of my face and looked into my eyes. You are not shirking your duties. You did what was right for your family, what you promised to do. You ca

Chapter 24: Revertion.
Matt, Jared and I contemplated an attack plan late on into the night. And as a result, I discovered that Latias wasn't particularly fond of sitting around planning.
Are you ever going to finish this?? She asked, sounding quite bored. I sighed and looked over at her. Yes Latias, we just have to figure out a good way to surprise the P.A.O. That part is essential if we plan on beating them- I noticed Matt and Jared watching me curiously.
I rolled my eyes. We can communicate telepathically. I said. I was responding to her question about how much longer that we'd be spending doing this.
Matt just slowly nodded. Riiigghht... Once again, it was time for the eye rolling. Well if Latias wants us to stop, then I suppose we could. Jared said.
HollowIn the land surrounded by majestic sightsHollow in Free Verse More Like This
Snow-shown mountains never did fall to the sunlight
Sunlight clouds washed over the pale skies
Until many did realize
Their fate had chosen for the Hollows to rise;
Only few that knew what powers they had,
The Hollows slid silently through the night.
Screams and cries rippled through the howling wind
Though none could be heard by the mortal men,
Whom had never set eyes to watch
As the Hollows devoured
Everything they could find.
Day by day did the Hollows pass,
But no one was left to stand and fight
Their way through the time
That was no longer left to them to fight back;
Only two Hollows were there to fight
And only two Hollows were there left.
Once upon their land's demise,
The heroes rose up from their lonely lives
To sentence these Hollows their last goodbyes;
Heroes known to none at all,
But fought with pride never seen by mankind.
Of many elements there were within these heroes
None of which wielded
The same as any other:

Never AliveShe never leavesNever Alive in Free Verse More Like This
is always on my mind,
speaking things she never spoke
until I break apart;
Falling as the weakling she made me,
like a bird on fire,
she will never be alive to me again
One who causes pain without knowing,
one who refuses for me to sleep at night;
always forcing my joy to flee
and hide behind that vacant mask
where I can only be made more insecure,
where I feel dead like a drowning dove;
Lauren who kills me every night,
...never alive...never alive...
LifelessWe hang off the edges of life;Lifeless in Free Verse More Like This
We search for a salvation,
a place where we are accepted,
not trash to be annihilated,
not to be cast into darkness,
never to be abandoned by our light;
For every darkness there is a light,
for every light is sorrow and loss
and hope and death;
Lifeless we are made by the world,
invisible are our scars,
the unseen marks of their hatred...
Lifeless we are made by the pain,
homeless we are in our souls;
Let it slip away as we dream about our days
in careless agony and truth
Shadow of HatredShe is the devil through my eyesShadow of Hatred in Free Verse More Like This
just strays within the shadow of my hatred...
Forced against my will
I've been turned into a demon
She is a monster whose hands unhinge my mind
Let in me be made an ocean of tears
in exchange for my somber-filled memories
I can't let go of my miserable past
the path that leads to my icy heart
Shadow of hatred
she remains in the form of a nightmare
a hideous beast like a flaming bird
which strangles the dove as it drowns in the sea
a sea of tears and long hidden memories
My hatred so strong and a freedom out of reach
she is the shadow of my hatred
refusing to let me sleep...
MoonlightWalking in the moonlightMoonlight in Free Verse More Like This
They noticed it as the clouds drifted across
The moon's pale surface
Where its shadow was seen but barely.
They watched over the creature
To be sure none would find it,
And discard its weak flesh.
Few knew of its existence,
So I went on the hunt to find it:
The Hollow of the Moonlight.
Silver were his eyes,
Gleaming like the light of the moon,
Yet skin so pale,
It was as white as ever seen.
The Hollow screamed silently to itself,
Cursing its own existence
When no one would plead
For the creature of the night.
I watched in secret as the Hollow's life was ending
In a way no man could ever wish
For any creature to last through;
In the way of its death,
Shadows cried out as the Hollow faded.
Many who knew just knelt by his grave,
Cursing themselves for never helping this creature
Survive this horrid life.
I was the Unknown,
The seeker of their keeping;
The Hollows would act when no one else
Knew of their existence
That was kept a secret to all
ResilienceYou cry yourself to sleep at night thinking that no one will ever noticeResilience in Free Verse More Like This
You wish you were more than this broken child,
this broken person inside
when yet you’ve overcome so much pain inside;
There’s no running away from a broken childhood
no matter how adult you have been made and become;
I too am broken,
so shattered inside
My resilience has gotten me so far in this life
I grew up with a flaming beast of a mother
whose actions shall forever leave me scarred;
I grew up in a world with a bunch of thrown stones
from children whose wish was my very death;
My family stood by and made the pain worse,
but my resilience comes from the inside not out;
My screams were silent for many years and I had no one to talk to,
You say you cry yourself to sleep at night?
I did that too;
I cried every night from when hell started all the way to seventh grade
and nobody ever noticed;
I broke up fights on a daily basis
and I brought home the scars to prove it
but even that wasn

Don't you realize that you're not the only one?
They can't stand me,
they all hate me;
It's as clear as the crystals around your wrists,
your hatred is as dark as bloodstone
my sorrow is like aquamarine
nay, it is like the dark blue of the night sky;
It's all I know how to feel,
this hate and anger,
this sorrow and misery;
Don't you know I'm an unloved soul,
a shadow on the wall?
Don't you get the facts?
I'm hated by you all!
No one cares about me,
no one wants me around;
I've been despised my whole life
Can't you tell?
Can't you see your own hatred
through those glamorous jewels,
or are the crystals you wear
just as dark as you?
Society's PesticideLifeless faces, painful liesSociety's Pesticide in Free Verse More Like This
Vacant stares watch my demise
A life of imperfection all of the time
Pelt me with stones, whip me with sticks
You never know when someone's clock will die
Tick tock, tick tock
Watch the time fly by
Pass up the chances to fit in with life
I am an invisible child, a discarded soul
I am a pesticide to society no matter the toll
Am I the 'cide on the ground
That repels society from wherever I stand?
Is it who I am
Or how I act
That becomes the 'cide to all of humanity?
Deadly chimes, endless ties
I repel all life
Given up on society, incapable to cope
Always hiding from my predators
Always clinging to my dying hopes
Lock me away in a freezing cage
Mine for my blood against my skin
Dig down deep for whatever remains
I am a silent angel sent away to my death
I am society's pesticide
Deprived of the right
To just fit in...
RippleToo scared to move did Fire feelRipple in Free Verse More Like This
After learning the supposed truth about Water;
She had been abandoned by her own companion
Yet left behind only for Water's life to proceed.
Hollows swarmed into the light of the sun
Only shown through windows sealed by bars
To the wilting flower of Fire,
The sorrow fleeting within her figure,
Causing dreads of truth yet realized.
Water in turn had stood her ground
Waiting for her dear friend to return,
Only did she now realize,
Fire was captured by The Hollow Tree;
When the sky turned from light to dark
The Darkness arose throughout the land,
And the majestic sight of the snow-shown mountains
Faded into naught.
The Hollow Tree had longed for the friendship of the Fire,
Who had never paid attention before time's hands had turned,
Causing them to separate.
He spoke at the utmost gentle voice to the weakening Fire:
"Why does someone of such perfection endure such hatred?"
The Fire looked up at the false smile
As gleaming gold eyes shook all other thoughts
Living In DeathDead and empty,Living In Death in Free Verse More Like This
Hollowed out inside,
Rotting flesh under fresh,
Cold and dead inside;
Locked in a cell,
Dying in my mind,
Invisible to the world,
A ghost of pain in their eyes;
Scooped out insides,
Not allowed to cry,
Not allowed to show the pain,
Always just pushed aside;
Left in the dark,
Left in a graveyard,
No place where I belong;
Dead and empty,
Cold, but still here,
Dead, but still alive;
Always crying on the inside,
Not allowed to show the pain,
Just cold and dead inside...

This world wouldn't care.
This world doesn't want me.
So why am I here?
All I've seen is sorrow.
All I've known is sorrow.
All I've felt is sorrow.
Nobody cares if I, a girl were killed.
Time is short but longer than my life.
My time is coming to an end.
But no one beyond myself.
No one knows about my pain.
Fore no one cares if I am in pain.
I'm nothing but a mistake.
I was the first experiment of three.
But I am broken, a failed experiment.
I'm too far from repair.
I'm too old to fix.
The parts cannot be found.
I cry at night but no one hears.
All they hear is silence.
Silence among all the screams.
Silent tears are what they see.
When there is so much more.
A soul, slowly dying away.
Soon to not exist.
Soon to be a bad memory.
One that they're glad is gone.
A thing to not want.
A thing to be happy about when gone.
Something no one ever wanted.
When I'm gone they'll be happy.
When I'm gone they'll celebrate.
Celebrate the death of a monster.
I am ruined by

Who sees no color
Who sees naught of his right eye
I'm dying without realizing
I'm losing my hope
But nothing ever gave me hope from the start
As I fall down this shallow road to nowhere
Asking over and over again
The very question that rots my core
The same thing I've been asked countless times
"Are you even supposed to exist?"
And my answer remains the same:
I don't know...
RespireWhat is it like to last with one's sightRespire in Free Verse More Like This
When I remain locked in this silent misery
While the salted world is free to respire
I'm not how I was made to be
Yet I can't be the one to be set free
Many suffer worse than me
But they have hope while I can't see
The future is bleak for some
And as for me:
I remain locked in this half seen land
To breath means nothing if you can't see
But I stay alive and see my dreams
Unfold and bend and break apart
As I remain motionless like a rock
Am I even meant to be
The salted world keeps its air
While the wonderful serenity hides from me
Just answer me this:
Is respire right for me
SufferingWe find ourselves sufferingSuffering in Free Verse More Like This
In this hate-bound world
In a place once frosted with joy
That is now long past its lifetime
Earth drowns in its poison
Waiting for the sun to explode
As a day begins
So does a new life
As the night draws near
So does the poison of its inhabitants
Fear spreads like the air we breathe
Hate emerges all around the once salted world
A life of suffering is the world we are trapped within
Hide behind a monster of wisdom
And see your future unfold
We monsters are the tools of your satisfaction
And we alone shall cease to exist in this place
A once pleasant world has evolved into a nightmare
A once peaceful place has finally died
As have we monsters
The ones who keep suffering...

Where even the demons are desired
Where there is no difference between human

Where all of the beasts are free to roam
And passions meet with their owner's dreams
A place for everyone to be
A hope for everyone to breathe
A world where everyone sees
Is what we all desire
When the world fades away
And all that is left is free to respire...

They don't understand what pain there is it causes
Those humans as they say
Just control our lives that tear us away
They say they want what's best
But they don't know for sure what that is
They say it'll help us
But they don't know what help is
All they know is the seperation they bring us
As this silent night goes by so fast
And the silence grows as we're taken farther away from each other
And the silent seperation only lasts while we don't know of its existance
I cry every night
Hoping they'll have a change of mind
But I know all too well
That what they say is their mind
And will never be changed...

A place of no emotion
We drown within its lake
Struggling for our freedom
Only until the day we finally learn the truth
Its too late for their forgiveness
And they will never accept us as we are
Humans against the monsters
The humans think they'll win every time
But it is time for the monsters' say within the useless conflict
We are beings of this planet with all of the same rights
And even though we are despised by these "people"
Us monsters reach out towards our freedom
Here we are in our own place
Running and hiding and trying to break free
Dead ends arrive in our path of success
But we just climb over those walls to a respiring end
The world is not the place it used to be
But no one ever said things would be that easy
A world once loved that now only hates
We seek the truth as to why we are here
Us monsters who hide in this deep dark cave
Our sorrow is eternal and our fate is everlasting
And we, the monsters, will just keep dying...

And I believe that we creatures hated so
Are nothing to the world
But forgotten angels...
Dead AngelShe's like a toy angel with torn-apart wingsDead Angel in Free Verse More Like This
Her lips are a cracked-in smile carved onto her face by a knife
She's a wingless angel who's lost her pride
She wears a masquerade mask to hide what's inside
Her voice is like an innocent child yet it is often sliced into by her pain and her fear
Her eyes reflect all of her pain
All of the burdens on the inside book cover
All of the mental scars that leave her forever changed
She's like a broken toy
She can't be fixed unless given the time
Her fragile perspective remains a mystery
She never says your mind
Clever like a fox
Lone like a wolf
Silence of a mouse
Hunted like a deer
Quick like a serpent
She is many things that nobody sees
She's invisible to the world but not at all to me
I see every line and angle and shade in her face
She's a hollowed-out nutshell eaten out by her perpetrators
She's a mouse trapped in the talons of a hawk
Her spirit is gone and freed from her being
I doubt she will ever be the same little girl I once knew her as

Just made it all worse
He was dead to the world for the rest of his life
He's a talented artist
He'll play so many instruments
But the world doesn't care
They've marked him for death
He's a pale ghost just barely hanging on
His voice is the silence that traps the dead in their graves
His anger is the eternal burden of his might
He's a broken child with so little of a past
He has eyes of a demon ready to slaughter
A mind wide open that knows all of the world's pain
He's the most unique person I have ever met
And he still remains that friendly soul
He's a king cobra-in-training
He's a true prince of darkness
He remains my family
My friend galore
He's the keeper of pain like an angel from above with wings stripped away by society
There's not much left in him
He's a broken prince charming
There's nothing left at all of who he once

Very talented as is he
Reborn in this life you have become
Shattered by those in that worthless dump
Pretending to be filled with joy
Just locking away the sadness
You prison yourself in the past

Somewhere you feel alive

Freed from endless years of suffrage
Released from your torments from the demons
Be it that you are, the reborn spirit of shadows

Just like he once tried to do
