The Horse - A dA Chinese Horoscope PoemImpatiently do I paw at the dirt beneath my hooves
Waiting for the moment to run, to leave behind age old grooves
But it is this impatience that will make me reckless
This selfish desire for freedom will likely leave me breathless
And yet despite these things, despite the looming bad
Deep within me there are attributes that make me glad
An enduring creature, so very proud of all that I am
With strength born of independence, a fiery wit refusing to jam
And yet I am friendly, I'll gladly help to carry you
And cheerful as the day is long, I'm happy to make you laugh too
These are my traits, be they right or be they wrong
But even the
The Garbage Bin Wish - A dA 12th Birthday StoryA young woman named Emma loved making art, and practiced painting all day long to become the very best in all her town. But one day, she was completely stumped. She looked around her room, full of art pieces featuring mystical buses, sci-fi landscapes of a futuristic London, UK, and a portrait of Tom Hardy that looked so real, you could start a conversation with it. But nothing inspired her. Had she really created everything there was to create? Depressed, she looked out her window, and made a wish on a nearby garbage bin for inspiration to return to her. The next morning, she sprung out of bed, and used her skill in painting to create the mo
Flying With Hickstead
I feel your strength beneath my hand
The raw power that belongs only to you
Yet together we fly, gracefully we land
Together there is nothing we cannot do
In frenzied excitement your steps eat up the ground
Your breathing is heavy, so loud in my ear
I hear nothing else, not a single sound
You move with confidence and I hardly need to steer
We come to the bars, long, narrow and black
I feel your body shift, readying to fly
And we know there's no turning back
I lean in close, as you leap, rising so high
For a moment time seems to stand still
Suspended in air, hanging over the bar
We're both in the moment, such a thrill
And then w
You Don't Know ToughLady you sit there and think you're tough?
Live a day with an abusive drunk and tell me tough.
Have someone threaten to kill you and tell me tough.
You don't know tough.
You sit there, behind your shiny desk and you think you think you know what's going on. You look at me and see the product of a broken home. You think I'm scared. Well I am. But not of him.
Never of him.
Because I've stood toe to toe with the monster.
I've held my ground and gripped a phone tight, 911 already dialled, waiting for the push of a button. I've stepped between them, when his hand was raised to strike. The marks it left are my Badge of Honour. Because I'm no
A Rant Inspired by a RantI wrote this in response to something I read. And if you don't like what I have to say, that's okay because we are all entitled to our opinions and freedom of speech.
Everyone is mistreated in some form. By their family and so-called friends. I was accused of being the product of incest when I was twelve just because there has been/there is incest on one side of my family. And I was asked that in a classroom full of other kids.
We all, from time to time, feel as though we have no place in society/the world. I fully believe that is a part of being a sentient being and that we have to question ourselves and our existence because we are not al
