As my kitten ponders...
The Seventh Child: First Glimpse It was a Saturday night. It was so dark outside. It was past my bedtime but I was still wide awake. I was staying up late because I was waiting for my older brother to come home. I was browsing my social media accounts to past time.
Moments later, I heard the sound of a tricycle and our gate opening. At first, I thought it was my brother. When I took a harder look while I was standing in front of the screen door, it was my aunt.
I went back to using the computer after greeting her. She went inside the bedroom where my mom was. She went out of the room wearing different clothes. She was wearing plain clothes. I thought she was ready to sleep.
Suddenly, there was a panic between my mom and my aunt. I didn’t understand what the blazes was going on at first. I was ignoring the world because I was focusing on things popping up on my dash in Facebook and Tumblr.
Little Alice and the Five Leaves Little Alice was strolling around the park one day. She decided that this time she should gather a few leaves because yesterday she collected flowers. She picked five different leaves from five different trees.
The first leaf she got was shaped like a butterfly's wings. She thought it was lovely and called it Phoebe. She liked giving names to objects. The second leaf she picked was a bit bigger than the first one and it had a bit of yellow in it. She called that one Euclid. The third one was not that big. It was smaller than the first two leaves. Still, she adored it and gave it the name Isaac. The fourth leaf was even smaller than the third one and it had a pointy tip. She decided to call it Isaiah. The fifth leaf which was the last one was the smallest. Still, she loved it and called it Allouh.
Alice, staring at the five leaves, wanted to decide which one was the best among the rest. She thought about it for a while. She pondered and pondered
The Sun in the Sky Long ago, there was no daytime. There was only nighttime. The sky didn't have a big ball of fire to appear every once in a while to shine upon our land. It only had a big white floating rock and tiny little twinkling dots back then. The world was basically in total darkness.
Luckily, humans had the ability to produce fire with their bare hands. They can manipulate the flames and control the fire with their will. They used this ability to see in the dark, to cook their food and to provide warmth. This ability also measured their greatness. The bigger the flame you can produce, the greater the person people consider you are.
But what if one cannot create a flame that can satisfy others? Jealousy and hatred happened.
Bullied and teased by how small and weak her production of flames are, Helia wanted to grow stronger. Driven by rage, she wanted to end the cruelty that was treated to her. She tho
Leave MeLeave me now
In my misery
'Cause if you don't go
You'll be affected
And that'll be up to me
It's hard to go on
But you have to go
As fast as you can
You have to save yourself
I don't want you in harm's way
I don't want you to be afraid
Of me as I change
So you better go
And just leave me
GavelAs I walk down life's road
People come and go
And every one of them
Had something to talk about
They said a lot of stuff and things about me
Even though they barely know me
She said that I'm useless
He said that I'm worthless
They told me I'm weak
The other yelled, "Ugly!"
There's always a devil behind every angel
I asked them, "Where's your gavel?"
People these days
Have a hard time to change their ways
They can't control
Their own mouth
And what they're about to say
Life is a maze
You are not the judge of me
Who are you to say
That I am pathetic
I'm about to get my shovel
To dig a hole
'Cause you don't even have a gavel
I did nothing to you
What am I supposed to do?
If you don't accept my flaws
Then I guess you won't get a visit from Santa Claus
Have you found your gavel, your honor?
Have you examined the clause?
Why don't you stop judging me
And just accept the fact
That I am so much better than you
In every little thing
So stop will all your sayings
Because my heart is breaking
I'm Not OkayAfter all the things I've been through,
And after everything you have done,
No matter how many times you ask me
I will always say I'm not okay.
I know this might be dramatic,
But this is the final straw.
I cannot take it anymore.
Whatever you do, I'm not okay.
No matter how many cards you send to me;
No matter how many times you say you're sorry
It won't be able to change anything.
And after all this time, I'm not okay.
It's better if you leave me alone
So I can be in peace.
I don't care how much you beg and plead.
I'm not okay.
You can count as many times you want to.
The answer will still be the same.
So maybe you shouldn't bother at all.
Because the answer will always be I'm not okay.
Being So NegativeI feel very emotional right now. I can be the happiest person that ever existed or even the happiest person that will exist if people will not give me a reason to frown. They say that man is not an island since he can't live alone. But I rather live alone. I don't want to let people have the chance to hurt me. I want to be free from betrayal, anger and the knife that will stab me in the back that was sharpened by hatred. I just need someone to hold me right now and make me feel like I'm the prettiest person that ever walked upon the earth. I just can't endure the pain anymore. I try to smile and they say that if you put on a fake smile it's bound to become real. I really doubt it. And I proved it wrong. Fake things can never be real. A plastic rose can't become a real rose. A toy truck can't turn into a real one.
A lot of people don't notice me. Others don't even know I exist. Sometimes I just want to get up and punch everyone who has caused me pain. I want to tell them, "FEEL MY PAIN!
