Colored To The Colorblind
Some guys from school caught me on the way home
They wanted to borrow some money
I obliged cheerfully
They said thank you my nigger
I was their nigger
The man down the street flagged me down
Clad in sandals and a dashiki
He needed some help with his groceries
He said thank you my brother
I was his brother
The young man by the store needed his shoes tied
I knelt down and tied the knots
He shot a smile at me
He said thank you my homie
I was his homie
I finally got home
And looked into my mirror
I didn't see the nigger or the brother or the homie
I saw myself outside and inside
And my skin did not bl
One experience that has a still-lasting effect on me was when my family and I had to move from our first home, which was house number 18 on North Edgewood Eve. While I didn't feel an immediate effect when we moved, the sentimental value of my home had to begun to catch up with me as the months and years passed. The one thing I regret most was how I didn't appreciate the house or neighborhood when I was younger, because I did not really indulge in my surroundings, as they were quite beautiful, scenic, and serene. It was relaxing and soothing, and you couldn't help but feel happy where you were.
The house was quite large and spacious, insi
Clenching the note that old man handed to be back at the Engel temple not too long ago, I looked up and down the dusted, desert road, lined with various tents holding the seedy, sly vendors that populated places like this. Tenerzi was really, on the contrary to what most say, a hotbed of illegal activity, and the various people that came through it thrived. I sure as hell was wondering what a blademaster was selling his wares here of all places, because throughout these lands and around this planet, they're a revered people, able to craft weaponry that is now totally out of phase, replaced with those things excavated and replicated from the

Strider, the main "protagonist" of the story, lives a life of torment that others would find to be a joy. He graduated from college with a 3.74 average, has a fairly well paying job co-managing a successful hobby shop, lives in a well kept home in Cedar Grove, NJ, and is a fairly handsome adult that comes from a wealthy family(mainly because of his race, which is trying to be preserved), but the one thing that keeps him from enjoying what he has is the fact that he has the inability to eye the positive side
My mother always told me never to associate with the Devilkin where we lived, mostly because she feared I'd be consumed by their background of evil, or so she wanted me to believe.

So far, I'm gliding along life. Though I'm still rife with anxiety about a few things(namely school, my future, and people that have come and unfortunately gone) and at times I cant help it, I'm sure things will work out.
I'm still scribbling away in notebooks, and finally decided to start some thing long term. Been working on a novel, several short stories that I'm trying to get published, and resurrecting a long forgotten pirate epic me and a close friend started years back but never finished because
After 2 years of the most annoying commuting and scheduling, I finally moved onto campus. I've learned.
-When you become the only person in the building to end up with a double room to yourself, people will hate you. A lot. Even the RA's.
-People are loud, and usually smell. Mostly being fine with the latter.
-Some people find it A-Ok to knock on your door sever times between 1 and 2 AM for a copy of Halo 3, some controllers, or even just the XBOX. Regardless of if you want to play.
-Shower slippers are far beyond reccomended. Espically if the showers are less than 2 feet from the stalls and have been sparsely maintained since 1979.
Right now, I'm making use of all the free time I have. On the good side, summer break is here. On the bad side, I was laid off. Thankfully, I have savings and a generous/understanding father.
ANTICITIZEN - Set in a distant and post-apocalyptic Earth, the story follows the hardships, personal conflicts, and awareness of a government journalist whose job is to create fake stories to suppress the remaining populations yearning to find out who started what, why society has radically reverted itself to neo-medieval socialism, and to venture outside of the worlds remaining city, which has been consumed by crude/salvaged technol
