Goodbye ApathyI'd never thought my life would end like this.Goodbye Apathy in Short Stories More Like This
Or, well, maybe I should correct that. I never thought my life would end.
I was promised eternity. And I could still have that, I suppose. But what would be the point? It's been years since I last saw you, years since my purpose in life had been fulfilled. Of course, I have people I love, that think they need me.
They don't understand, can't understand. My story has ended; it ended only a few months after you left.
Finally, after having hesitating on the shore for what felt like ages, I took a step into the water, letting the cold strike up through my legs, violent shivers flaring down my back.
I think someone tries to plead with me to stop at this point, but I hardly hear a voice. I only feel hope, relief.
I walk further into the water, my light clothes swirling around me in the icy bath. But the farther I walk the less of the cold I feel. That euphoric feeling I'd found only seems to grow with the promise of an end coming c
HallowbonedI went to the doctor today.Hallowboned in Short Stories More Like This
She said I was going hollowboned.
I will soon be set free from this earth, so light not even gravity couldn't hold me down.
I'm at my mirror, looking at my face. There is nothing different. My bones stretch nearly through my skin. My head is as bare as ever. The same face I see every morning. But maybe I feel a bit lighter. Maybe I feel a bit less pain.
They tell me it shouldn't be possible.
But I'm living proof that it's happening, aren't I?
Not all men are supposed to be earth-bound. The earth holds nothing for me, therefore it can't hold me. I will become Icarus. I will rise to the sun.

How apt that I should mingle
Into acceptance amongst the likes of you
When no society would take me for my stumbles
In thought, coherence and virtue.
If only I could pander, as simple,
To their sweet tooths insatiable chew
With candy floss thats thickly twirled
Or M&Ms coated blue.
I could have avoided all the trouble
Of dodging belt buckles and flying shoe,
And lonely possession of unbreakable bubbles
With no one to share their smell of glue.
But time goes by and immortal bubbles shrivel,
Like an adults imagination loses its hues,
As I keep watch just outside this tragic circle
I hear only pen on paper and crushed sugar cubes.

Some may see life as an open sea, where you set off into the distance, with sails billowing in the wind, prow enduring turbulent waters, forging ahead on conquests of uncharted lands.
Some may see life as deep unfathomable space, with a labyrinth of stars we are lost amongst, as we try ceaselessly to make our way back to wherever it is we began.
And then therere some that see life as a book. A book in which all the daily workings of every single being, whose entire histories are stories which converge into each other merely to form a perplexing line of existence. Lines that always end in either a missile bombing exclamation mark, a question mark whose answer is never found or a full stops failed attempt at convincing everyone that everything has been concluded.
Line after line after line and every single thing in between (sometimes theyre kind and present themselves in parentheses). Like a flying bird, or a changing traffic light, or a dandelion at a peak hour

Big sisterWhenever I was weak you helpd give me strengthBig sister in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
If I was ever in trouble you always came to help me out
I could be broken, beaten, bruised, bloody and bashed
Yet it was always you to be the first one to come by my side
No matter what the situation it has always been you that has been there
At times I would hate you for helping me, but deep inside I was always glad
Even though you are older than me that still hasnt stopped you from being a kid
The times I was lifeless, unconcious, and cold to the world
It has always been your voice that brought me back from the great beyond
I fear that without you I would have been dead a long time ago
You are to me what the sun is to the moon, what the clouds are to the sky
And what the stars in the night sky are to the universe...
It never mattered to you what I had do

So what do you call a man when he cant even protect himself?
That is not a man but a coward.
How does one become a man after being brand a coward?
To become a man he must face the darkness within himself.
Darkness, the same darkness that turned him into a coward.
Heh you must be thinking how do I know this?
Or better yet is what I say even true?
Try it yourself if you dont believe me.
Ah but there is a problem already.
How does one become a coward?
Fear,depression,lose the will to live,and give into the darkness within.
Or if they've had there most precious possesion taken from them.
How do I know all of this you say?
I know because I have been through both worlds.
Even though it may seem easier to become a coward and die.
I much rather be a man that has lost everything,
And yet still find the strength to live.
Any coward can kill themself.
It takes a real man to live life even if he's lost everything.

HauntingThe air around it fill with a haunted feeling. Ghostly and cold. The roof leaks bad of freezing water, and as rats pass by. The feeling o loneliness and horror returns every night.

This PainYears and years pass, and still I remain alone. My heart and soul, destined for hell. My body tattered and torn. Everything I feel and everything I see is pure. Pure as ashes. I could stand in a fire, and burn for hours, but the pain I feel inside, is way worse than the pain I feel outside. My heart sinks deeper and deeper as I think I'm in love. To curl up and die is something people would laugh at. No one understands me... The names I'm called, the friends that betray, the fake love I get.. It doesn't help. The way I see the world is not something people would understand. I'm always in hurt, always unsafe. From the names I'm called, to the fights people pick.

White Boy ConservativesEvery time I hear on the news about the Westboro Baptist Church protesting homosexuality at a military funeral, it fills me with teeth clinching, fist pounding rage. We live in a time where homosexuality is not a universally excepted idea and bigotry towards them is considered mundane in many conservative cultures. For the WBC to further encourage such blind and unnecessary hatred is a slap in the face not only to gays and lesbians, but also to the human race as a whole.White Boy Conservatives in Academic Essays More Like This

Of Hero and SoundIn a recent class discussion, it was learned that sound can include three basic elements: dialogue, music, and noise. These three elements can either be diagetic or nondiegetic. The chess hall scene in Hero has classic examples of different types of sound working in harmony to create a beautiful scene.Of Hero and Sound in Academic Essays More Like This
A noteworthy example of diagetic noise comes from the beginning of the fight sequence between Nameless and Sky. The battle officially begins when Nameless makes his way across the wet floor of the chess hall when he lunges for Skys throat with his sword. The sound of Nameless footsteps are amplified by the splashing of the water beneath his feet. The first step is accompanied by an explosive splash in a huge puddle of water. The successive steps after that are accompanied by the sounds of much smaller, but noticeable splashes. Water is a huge motif in Hero due to the fact that the movie is in the martial arts genre and as Bruce Lee once said, in order to be successful at mart

because, I used to be something I never had to lack,
my own unique type of being,
capable of feeling and breathing,
not like this; a torn and shattered soul,
how misery and rejection had taken its toll...
And, I only hope that one day
I would get the chance to say:
You were like no other,
taught me self respect and dignity...
But, sadly, thats something theyll never get to see,
because, I ended my own life,
cut with glass, and the knife,
