Sitting on a shelf, day after day, month after month, and year after year. The only job I am needed for is holding memories. People stop to look at me, occationally smile and laugh. Others, walk right by. It's hard to be noticed when you are always there. Forever sitting and holding memories. After all, I am just a picture frame
I am the rivers. I am where your ancestors' civilizations grew and flourished I run through the valleys, down the mountains. I run under your bridges I carry your boats wherever they need to go Your ancestors? They worshipped me, respected me. They knew how much they depended on me. What changed?
Now my banks are drying up. There is no water to flow through me anymore. And when there is, it's fowl, Polluted with your oil and your trash. You treat me like I'm nothing. Don't you realize that I'm just a thin ribbon of water? And that I'm actually alive? But you, you're killing me. Don't you see it? Aren't you paying attention?
I am poisoned by your waste I am evaporating in the heat. I give you fish to eat, I give you water to drink and to bathe in I give and I give and I give. But do you notice? Of course not.
I sit there perfectly comfortable in my blue plastic package, right beside my twin. We model a name brand and nutritional facts on the outside. Just now, the imposter opened our perfect package with five pale grabbers connected to her white, fleshy claw. The plastic rustled until--rip--it opened completely. Her fingers plummeted towards my twin and broke off the corner of his rectangular face. "Goodbye, my friend," I yell as the human continued to eat the Pop-Tart.
Ugh, my back hurts from carrying my 'master' for three days without rest. Being a horse can suck, especially being my type of horse, a majestic black stallion. My coat is a pitch black color as is my mane and tail and is as smooth as silk. My kind is usually proud and hearty, but in my case, I'm not. I'm just used as a source of transportation for my lazy, middle-aged male master. He never treats me as his friend or ally, just as a slave for moving from a beautiful blooming green countryside to huge rocky mountains. My master slaps my hide demanding that I go faster. I silently snort to myself in annoyance at the stupid brunette on my back. I rear up on my hind legs in an attempt to throw him off and to my surprise, I did. I heard a satisfying 'THUMP' as he landed on the dirt covered ground. I snickered silently as he shot up off the ground giving me an icy cold glare.
Time only goes forward, I know this. Everyone knows this, but I know it the most. Time keeps going; it never stops, really. Humans may pause their lives; set everything on freeze, but they will keep living. They may stop for a moment, to take a rest because they are so tired. So tired of living, even though they are filled with life. Every second of their life is always moving forward. Humans are always getting older - every second is one moment closer to death. Every minute they spend on their frivolous entertainments is a waste, a lost memory.
Hello I'm Minnie. And I'm a clock. Yes, you might be thinking a "clock", but yes a very old and wise clock. Kristina is the one who bought me. The world is tough, but so is she. She has gotten her heart broken many times and I feel bad, because she doesn't deserve it. But some how she gets through it, like I said shes tough. Later on in life she meets Scott and hes real nice. Finally they get marred and it was such a beautiful day. It felt like it was a story in a fairy tale until, she falls. Screaming in pain the ambulance comes and she didn't get marred that day. Why does things get so good, then it turns bad. A week later she finally get marred, again? They were so happy together, so on March 12th Evelyn was born. She is so pretty, sometimes she will play with me. On her 4th birthday Kristina gets diagnosed with cancer. The treatment cost was so high. So Scott finds out that he could go train in the military and get that money.
Oh come on! They're trying to kill me again! Seriously I can't even come out of my home without some crazy trying to wipe my head off! I just have to constantly be running around hoping that they don't try decapitating me. Everywhere I go they notice me. I could hide in there pantry that they haven't used in three months and they would still no I was in there. It's like they have a spider sensor and every time I get close something beeps in there little dumb heads. Finally I can sneak past without someone trying to behead me. I get back to my web and I notice that it is cut in half. This about sent me over the edge. I have to remake an entire web. Do you know how long it took me to build that giant web. Do you know how long it takes that gel that comes out my behind to turn into a web? Like a whole day. I wait a day and finally it is hardened. I make sure it is set and then to relieve my stress I go for a walk. I notice that theres no on there!
This story is filmed from the perspective of a dog. continued. Oh no the humans left and I don't know if they will ever come back. But the radios on so at least some ones home. Never mind I'm just gonna go bark at the cat and scare him. Alright now that I've barked at the cat I am gonna steal food from the counter. So all I have t do is push the stool to the counter. Now that I've done that I have to get up on the stool and get on the counter. Alright I've seen the humans do this a hundred times. I put my paw though the little slot and pull as hard as I can. There its open now all I have to do is pull out the chicken nuggets from the microwave. Oh no they fell on the floor. Well its easier to eat them now so off the counter I go. Yum yum yum these chicken nuggets are delicious the best I've ever had even. Well that the end of that day I'm gonna go to sleep on my owners bed. The end.
Hi, my name is Coco. I am a dog. Some people get very upset when us dog poop or pee in the house. Well, it's not our fault you know. We bark and whine but you just tell us to be quiet. Well, of course we obey! But that just means we need to do our "business"! Another thing, don't eat right in front of us!! It is so not cool. We eat food from a box or bag and you eat fresh meats and veggies. And to make matters worse you eat right in front of us. Do know how much our mouths water. We have very powerful noses, we smell EVERYTHING! Think about that next time you make chicken and feed us food from a bag or box. Oh yeah, and that teasing you do.... that's got to stop. You tell us "walk" and then two minutes later you forget about it or your friends call. Then we are stuck inside ALL day long. And the treat tease too, that is so not okay. You put it right over our noses..
