Broken Spirit

My name is Kim. I have a best friend. His name is Evan. Evan got accepted into Georgetown for Music. He has green eyes and red hair. I love his smile. He plays the tuba and acts in musicals. My favorite past time is the C.D he made for me when I was 12. He always plays the Lord’s Prayer. It’s extremely soothing. I always think of nature and relax when he’s around. I don’t know why his mom doesn’t want to fix it; they wrote the wrong date on his tombstone.

The author's comments:
I wrote this piece in my Art of the Essay class as an impromptu piece. Beginning with a core motive, ending with a contrast. This contrast still exemplifies the writer’s emotions. It is meant to be short and full of fragments. And yet, the overall piece expresses an idea and/or emotion fluidly.
