Wake up ..by Moonie

penned in moon dust

Here are the prompts to Reena’s xploration challenge #232. Underscore Challenge!!!

  1. I’m going to defeat you with the power of friendship! … And this knife I found.
  2. I’m sick and tired of being called ‘mortal’ like, you don’t know that. Neither do I. I have never died even ONCE. Nothing has been proven yet. Stop making assumptions. It’s rude.
  3. Some of you may die, but that’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make.
  4. Not trying to brag or anything, but I can wake up without an alarm clock now simply due to my crippling and overwhelming anxiety, so…

It was not that long ago that I was like you. I woke when the rooster crowed or when the clock rang a long buzz. I can’t call it an alarm clock because that is so overstated in a mere buzz. But let me explain…

I was in an old historic town…

A Play

A play …by Aboli Mane

A Writer In The Room

Some of you may die, but that’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make.

Ronnie threw his skinny arms over his head and stretched. The playground sizzled in the heat of the summer sun. Ronnie could almost see the waves. The concrete under his sneakers was cracked and dry. 

The swings and the see-saws looked inviting but Ronnie didn’t feel like roasting his behind. The slide was a death trap, it would melt anyone’s skin off if one dared. Ronnie dribbled his football, his light brown hair matted to his forehead by the sweat. What a great summer! 

He wiped the sweat off on his orange tank top. Mama had driven him crazy, constantly asking him which summer class he’d like to join. To escape her inquisition Ronnie came to the playground. He walked to the shade of the big tree and busily dribbled his ball and practiced a few kicks.

Stress keeps me awake!

Stress keeps me awake….by Sadje

Keep it alive

Reena has provided some prompt lines for us to write this week. I have chosen this one;

Not trying to brag or anything, but I can wake up without an alarm clock now simply due to my crippling and overwhelming anxiety, so…

➰➰➰

It is always wise to be well-rested when you have something important coming up. At least that’s how it should be. But I blame it on my desire to do things well in advance, that I don’t need an alarm clock to wake me up on the big day. My anxiety does it by itself.

The day we were moving, I knew it would be a long and tiring day so I set my alarm for 9:30 am. But I got up at 4;30 am and was on my feet and tired by the time the movers arrived at 10:00 am. Already stressed out and anxious.

Friendship

Friendship …. by Diana Coombes

Writer Ravenclaw

I’m going to defeat you with the power of friendship! … And this knife I found will go straight to the police station amnesty. We are more than our upbringing. We don’t have to fight any more.

One gang after another gang because of where we live.

It doesn’t matter that we are from different backgrounds – we all breathe, love, and protect. Sometimes family, sometimes friends, sometimes ourselves. Take your hand in mine and we can fight our fears together.

There was a man, who spoke of freedom, and it seems unfair that his dream needs pushing a little further. We are one human race. Together we will make our earth a better place.

Death

Death ….. by Michelle Navajas

For Reena’s Exploration Challenge, i used this verse as inspiration “I’m sick and tired of being called ‘mortal’ like, you don’t know that. Neither do I. I have never died even ONCE. Nothing has been proven yet. Stop making assumptions. It’s rude.”

Death

i am a lonesome mortal on earth yet to experience death.

if death comes to visit me i am ready for i have lived my life to the fullest.

i have made the most notable most memorable trail on earth.

yes, i did even if life was full of unwarranted tribulations.

i fought the hardest fights with grace and composure.

i stood by my ground, never gave up, and was always ready to be brave in yet another battle anytime.

even if people around made it so hard i face them with a smile, with gratitude, with love.

i face them with the hope that…

Morbid

Morbid …. by Jim Adams

A Unique Title For Me

Some of you may die, but that’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make, as I couldn’t think less of you, no matter how hard I try.  I don’t have a modicum of respect for any of you and I would like to clearly state with absolute assurance that I don’t give a damn what happens to any of you.  Your death does not concern me in the least, as every man dies.  In the end, death comes for all of us and then we cease to exist.  Death will eventually come knocking on your door, and whether you go quietly into that good night or struggle, the result will be the same.  You may not see it coming, but it is inevitable and there is nothing that you can do about it, as when your number is up, it is time to die and even James Bond knows this.  You…

Now ~ a W3

Now ….. by Sangeetha

Mindfills

Now is a moment
a complete universe
should we stay,
go ahead, or reverse?

Now is a museum
of all of our past
each breath taken
is wisdom that lasts

Now is a dream
that tomorrow wakes,
a beautiful thought
a world to create

Time is never saved
Time is never all spent
Locked in infinity
Now is a moment

Mindfills for The Skeptic’s Kaddish W3 #4

Sharing Thoughts

ONFUSION

I am a loner.

Is this a curse or a bliss?

Am I right or wrong?

Should I change my attitude,

to fit into society?

Two Sides #poetry #heat #2faces

Two sides …. by Moonie

penned in moon dust

I was Janus once

a shiny side

a muted side

put all happiness aside

It wasn’t me

it certainly wasn’t you

for one day I was famous

then a hot wind blew it away

I spun the coin

heads or tales

to be or not to be

there’s no answer to the question

but there are always two sides

The prompt for Reena’s Xploration 231 is to reflect on the Poem “How to Be Alone by Padraig O Tuama

Reflect on How to Be Alone

Alone, not lonely. #Symetrelle #poetry

Alone, not lonely ..
by Jude Itakali

tales told different

Eugi’s weekly

Alone but never lonely

In the shadows, watching rays so bright
Afraid to be seen, entwined with night

Isn’t it enough to feel all emotions
but only stay intimate with own passions
To care when needed but hoard all devotion
Embracing within, answers to my questions

Seen reflections of what could, and might
The things only I can answer right

Alone but never lonely

#whatdoyousee

This family came to me

Not through blood or heart, but from afar
For my wailing calls met no answer

As I reached for souls so near yet beyond me
All my smattering summons, not meant to be
Yet still I heard the call, climbed the hills to see
And I changed, and I became, I paid the fee

I now find home in feelings bizarre
Epiphanies from peace’s reservoir.

This family came to me

There is no law that binds one…
