Is a video game and rage.
Is just one more drink.
Apparently protecting yourself,
Is one swift kick.

Voices were being muttered besides me. I tried to go back to sleep but could not. Just please shut up, I thought and opened my eyes. A bright light blinded me, stinging my eyes. The voices stopped and everything was silent. I tried to push myself up but my arms and legs had fallen asleep.
Someone helped push me up and then the voices all began again, they were asking questions but I could not directly hear each one. The faces around me bended, and the voices came in and out. I blinked but the earth continued to swirl and throb.
God help me, I fell backwards onto the bed in frustration. The voices stopped again and I could hear one clear one, the voice of authority.
“Silence!” it called, “It is too much for Simon to take in,”
Simon? Who was that? I tried to remember anything about the name but knew it wasn’t me. I was Dom. I pushed myself up again and this time spoke;
“Who is Simon?”
Everyone gasped and stared at me in confusion. Of course I was probably more confused than anyone, I couldn’t remember a thing.
“Well, can you remember anything?” A small voice squeaked. I turned towards it and found myself staring at a small boy with brown hair.
I looked closer at the boy’s face and saw that it was speckled by freckles. Then I looked back over to the leader. Read more »
There isn’t a good word to describe a hot shower.
Sure there are plenty of ways to describe it. But not a way to describe it. I guess its hard to explain this to people but the simplest way to put it is to say: The shower is the waterfall that has a secret cave behind it, that leads to the castle of my mind.
In faraway lands
Under dark blue seas
Comes tales of the band
Octopod --called by me.

The soft crackle of leaves under foot,
The sky clouded over like a chimney and soot.
Constantly running -- looking over her shoulders
Bounding down yellow paths and around sharp corners. Read more »
“Hey Bunny!” a friendly voice called out behind me. Only one person called me that. I grumbled and lifted my head out of my backpack where I had been previously trying to find Mr. Molly, my silver-blue piggle. Looking up I grabbed the reins to my night wyvern, Shade, and turned to face the oncoming person. I was greeted by a big slobbery kiss from a midnight black heckhound.
“Agh!” I laughed in surprise and tried to push the feisty pup off my lap. My wyvern grunted in amusement. I heard laughing and looked up to see my best friend Elie.
“ ’Night come here boy,” he said calmly and the heckhound bounded over to him tailed raised playfully in the air. Elie crouched down and patted the hound on its head then looked up at me “Come on down, he won’t bite” Read more »
Same-sex marriage legality has been a problem that our country has been facing for decades. For a while it has been up to individual states to decide whether or not same-sex marriage should be illegal in their state and for many reasons this needs to stop. First, by giving states control over this decision you are taking away a citizen's rights as well as continuing an unconstitutional act. Next, besides political issues, same-sex marriage has also had many opinions revolving around it about parenting or raising a child. All of this is something that needs to be settled once and for all and we can change this. As stated by Martin Luther King Jr.: “Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom.” Read more »
The Planet earth was destined for destruction. In the year ____ scientists were experimenting with scontrolled explosions of the high explosive anti-mattter. Their goal, an long sustaining alternative engery to power space ships. Sadly in one of their experiments a tiny crack was formed. The scientists found it but it was too late. The explosion that would escape could reach the rest of the storaged anti-matter, and since the count down till the explsion was already counting there was nothing that they could do to control it. With only a day on the timer these scientist gathered the best of the best, athletes, engineers, famers, military geniuses and more. These people we put into a cryonic suspension and put onboard an automatic space ship that was destined for the Russian Republic of Colonization. With barely minutes to spare they sent the slumbering people unto their twelve month voyage. By the time the people reached the RRC, Earth was gone, and in its place a newly formed asteroid belt.

With all the wars, and terrorists, and other things happening around the world, most of us have forgotten the most important thing. US! I mean it’s not like the United States of America matters or anything… but hey, some of us might have opinions on how to run our country too! I mean how many times have you heard something and thought: “Hey that’s a good idea!” or “Boo! That’s terrible!”. I believe that with so much going on in the world we have forgotten the most important thing: us, the people. I, and others, feel that the hegemonic role that our country has been trying to hold, has made us lose focus on events that are happening right here in our own country! When it comes down to it, you might not even know what’s going on around you. Did you know that right now over 43 percent of the United States population is living in a state that provides some form of protection for same-sex couples? That’s right, and almost of third of us live in a state that has the freedom of same-sex marriages or at least honors that freedom. (according to Freedom to Marry.org) This is right now. Something that IS affecting you and your future, not something that may or not happen. Therefore don’t you agree that we should be focusing on that? Focusing on the events that are taking place in our own country? I believe that same-sex marriage should be legal in all states, and that individual states should not have control over whether or not it should be legal. Read more »
The wind is bitter as it bites trough my coat, and my feet keep walking even though my mind has died.
Fog and snow dance around me, calling for me to stop and play.
But my heart tells me that it is not time yet.
Turning up my collar and turning a cheek I turn away from this cold winter’s grip.
With my hands shoved deep in my pockets, hidden from sight, I trudge up the hill going further away.
From the noise, the people, the feelings of joy.
From the place, that I may once have called home.
I walk to the top where unknown is hidden, grey and mysterious, but where my burdens can alone be ridden.
Where, I can unchain the pains and troubles that I have bolted to my heart.
Then from up on my high perch by the stars, I can fly further than before.
Through the darkness that once bound me.
Down to the light that welcomes me with open arms.
In an attempt at writing, I was able to come up with this. Hope you guys are ok with it.... I dont really have any feelings towards it (good or bad), so wold love some suggestions if you have any. Again, hope you like it.
Prompt idea: Maybe we could do something like a way to change our future?
Nowadays i find myself writing rants. So heres one that i wrote a couple of days ago.

So. Being a teen can be hard, as I quickly learned. And many problems had and will have to be faced. So in the spirit of my soul dieing a bit everday;a peom
A little piece of me died,
and will never return.
I tell you my life,
and you keep secrets as I have to learn.
I love you,
and you never tell me that you have a friend.
I am lead to think it is all the same as before,
when you have left me behind.
I tell myself it will all be ok,
but my heart is torn in two.
I only wish that before when i could,
I had told you.
After a long time of boredom in school I somehow stumbled upon this little beauty, Animoto. Animoto as I found, is a website where you can create advertisements. Upon further inspection I found that for free you can make 30 second comercials (the length of a TV comercial). Of course being myself, I began to talk to myself:
"Wow wouldnt it be cool if everyone on YWP made their own comercial for their writting?"
"Whoooooooa! Dude that would be amazing!"
"It would totally be epically disasterously amazing!"
"Let us tell the people of YWP of this idea!"
"Ahead of you,"
"Mind. Blown. Poof."
So, how cool would that be? For us to make videos of our writting to help inspire ourselves, others, and even just possibly help get your work 'Out There' here on YWP?
Of course this is just a pitiful idea.... but I want to know what you guys think about it! I made a quick one as an example, all of the photos I have made myself. Hope you like it and to hear back from you!
So, as many of us know: Chat can be a big, vast, and confuzzeling world. BUT. It can also house the very threads of a story. Therefore, WE CHALLENGE YOU TO MAKE A SHORT STORY BASED OFF THIS CONVERSATION. Take it anywhere, anytime. The only limit to this story is your own mind. Have fun and Dream On!
The idea came from several of my dreams.....
In one for example
This magical swivel cupboard thing transports me
To munchkin land
But they all hate me there
And try to sacrifice me to a t-Rex that terrorizes their city
And so I end up running from dinosaurs
And some how
End up in a museum
Where the dinos chase me Read more »
Heart of a Hero
When most children think of the Army they think of red, white, and blue. They think of men and women marching triumphantly through the walls of an enemy, to defeat whatever person is against the US. They think of the USA being the best, with our army strong and forever protecting our county. They are patriotic, and believe that everything is right.
But when I think of the army, I think of a big man sitting at a huge mahogany desk, surrounded by papers which he stamps with red ink. He laughs, and props his feet up and leans back in his giant leather chair and shouts in a heavy voice.
"Whose life shall I ruin next? Whose family shall I tear apart and make suffer for no reason? While I sit here and happily watch them struggle? "
Ok so here it is so far! I added a rain affect (to amplify the title). Did a tile thing, and some other stuff. Let me know what you think and we can conference about what needs what. Hope you like it!
So as usual; this fabulous, fine weather day was spent inside. Inside with all the fans on, a pizza, Fullmetal Alchemist/ The Brotherhood, and the lack of imagination. Feeling that I needed to infact do something productive, other than completeing a season of FMS, I found myself sitting infront of an empty word document. Now at 6pm, it is still blank, as is my mind. But if you look to the right you can see an open paint.net. On this to my amazment is a cover. So even if I have not set foot outside this entire weekend, I made a cover for my story. So I did in fact, *cough* Mother *cough* do something productive this weekend. The first of the following is the new one, and the later my other attempt. Neither of which are any good, but i still had fun making them. Hope you like them. IF YOU COULD CHOOSE WHICH WOULD YOU PICK?
So heres a quick idea..... let me know what you think.
One Day Without Shoes
What: One Day Without Shoes
Who: Anyone and Everyone
One Day by Matisyahu, Marching On by One Republic, Wavin’ Flags by K’NAAN. Songs and Shoes. Two things we take for granted. Songs empower us to move, to make changes, to take life ‘one step at a time’. Every day, every day we take these steps whether they be on land or in our minds. And how do we take these? Some may say by following our dreams, others by Don’t Stop Believin’.
But it is even simpler than that.
We take these steps with shoes on our feet. Most of us anyways. Most of us can look around us and see shoes on peoples feet, whether they be sandals, tennis shoes, or even loafers. Asking around you get many answers on what people’s favorite shoes are; DCs, Nike, Converse, etc. Read more »

I sit and wonder
I sit in front of a blank page
I hold a pencil in my hand
What is it that makes us writers?
What is it that motivates us?
What is it that gives us ideas?
What is it that makes us constantly think?
Think of what we could use?
What we can gather from the world,
And put into words?
What is it that turns our minds,
From a red ball bouncing in a metal room,
A paradise of tales
A new world full of new people
A place that anyone can be anything?
What is it that makes us different?
What do others do?
Instead of searching the world
For a tale to be told?
What is it that makes them not see the characters
Pounding against the glass door of imagination
Telling you to come and play
To come and get lost in their world?
What happens in that metal room?
When we use the world to come up with new ideas?
I keep sitting here
And looking at the first hundred or so words of my story,
And completely re-writing it to be in a different voice
But I soon realize that there is nothing.
Nothing that may be as perfect as what I have already.
Life is like a story
But having to end at some point
To have that last page
but with the story forever held within.
We all write Read more »
So this is a myth I wrote. It sort of eplains some more stuff for my story, The Stone's Fate. Im thinking about useing it in the next chapter. Let me know what you think! ^-^
It felt good to know something in the past day, even if it didn’t make any sense. Malco smiled and nodded in appreciation towards Nynph and she smiled.
“So according to the legend, you may in fact be that king and queen,” Malco said, “Many people already believe that you two are the twins of the legend,” I was shocked, how could we be the twins of the legend? They were all crazy, they had to be.
“And how do you expect us to believe this?” I asked standing up, Luke rose and Malco looked defeated. Read more »
It had caught me by surprise. The burning.
I had just started on my way to the training hall, Jason had fed me some silver liquid and then left for me to change. Soon after I had made my way out the hall. It was then that the burning happened.
As I reached the doorway my side suddenly felt as if someone was stabbing it and drawing on it with a piece of burning charcoal. Both of which I had been through on separate occasions. But this was even worse. This was a small piece of hell. Read more »
Ina adannu duga elu,

In time dark rise up,
the king and queen who bear the seal of the house of the heavenly one,
All I could remember was Susan screaming and then floating away. Jason. The only thing that I wanted was to tear him apart limb by limb. Him. He had sent me all the way around the tribe, making me as lost as possible. Then he had held Susan’s hand at the training hall when I finally found my way. Him. I would tear him apart. Read more »
