A Postcard from Heaven...

February 2, 2011
I just got home from the funeral. Tears still stung in my eyes threatening to stream down my face and break the facade I had been putting on for my little sisters. It’s okay to cry I said time and time again. My vision blurred, Mom nonchalantly says, “Check the mail”. I stumble over my own two feet and pull the handle down with what little strength I had left; I open my eyes and reach for the single postcard sitting there all alone. I scan down to see who it’s from. I blink rapidly to keep the tears from dancing a familiar dance down my cheeks. I crumble down and stare blankly at the postcard when I finally begin reading I remember its okay to cry. It’s okay to cry.

i think that this was the most heartfelt thing i have ever, EVER, read. You are a very inspired young child and you have the talent of an angel. Everyone here that is telling you to add more detail needs to realize that its not their piece and although yes they are trying to help, i think you are doing just fine. You are a beautiful (even though i have never seen you i assume) young man and i think you have the best piece of art right here. Treasure it (: IT IS OKAY TO CRY! IT IS OKAY TO CRY! Yo... (more »)

awww=') so heartfelt. but i agree, it could use more detail. i personally want to know more about who's funeral it was and what that person meant to the main character.

in the meantime, could you read one of my articles: story of a working girl? comment, rate, and spread the word. thanks=)

It's a good start, and it has good potential, but you might want to try adding in a little more detail. And it's okay to cry! =D

I'm sorry about your grandfather, I know how it feels. I lost my grandmother in 2009 and I still miss her very much and like you wrote, it's OK to cry.

I understand what you are trying to say, yet I think you could include more details.
