    Attending a university awakens a period of growth, insight, and personal awakening in a young person’s life. Responsibility, freedom, and liberty are both consequences and advantages of “going away to college”, a dream many high school students find themselves indulging in years before the vag...

    Life is a web of moments, experiences that connect each other by fibrous threads in the mind and the memory, stretching out towards others with every thought. There is a moment in every person’s life when they realize that their childhood is coming to a close. I experienced that moment when I was ...

    I have been you and me For these uncounted years. I have been part of "we" As long as I've shed tears. You shelter me in arms As strong as iron bars, Away from all that harms By carving in deep scars. There is not one pair Alive out there today With all that we share D...

    Two women sit on couches facing each other in a small, crowded coffee shop. People are milling about, enjoying the warmth the café provides on this rainy day. The baristas chat easily as machines whir excitedly behind them, preparing for the morning rush. One of the idle women sips a coffee; the ot...

    The world turns away, Not one friendly face To welcome me back in After what he did. I stand there and wait, But no one changes pace To help the lonely girl On the street. Left here all alone, with nothing of my own, Except the splintered pieces Of my broken heart. He said his love...

    Mind to heart, Time to start To write the words That shake the world. Heart to hand, Cannot understand Why these words Spill out slurred. Hand to pen, Tell me when I will find the words So I will not remain unheard. Pen to page, At the stage Where nothing I write Is at its heig...

    She mounted her horse And set off towards town, Leaving the corpse To sink and to drown In the ice cold river, Frozen over by winter. The dead do not shiver, So she left it behind her. Riding onward, She passed several men, Broken and awkward, Burdened by what had befallen them. Sh...

    The train of her cloak Dragged through the snow. The winter wind with one stroke, Tore the hood from her face as it did blow. The cloth hid her footsteps From the eyes of her trackers. Secret the haven was kept From the attackers. She fled over hills And around brittle trees, Flinching...

    Lost in the crowd, One blur amongst many. A face in a shroud, Clouded by fears aplenty. A hardship, a heartbreak, Protects the guarded soul. A care, a fair shake, Prises it from the hole. The soul broken free, Knows not what will come. What for it there will be, Or what it will become...

    Look across the shining sea Into her reality. See her face in the pool. She knows she looks like a fool. Distorted features shame her As they sit in the water. Watch her flaws claw out holes In the depths of her soul. She cracks the Judas mirror But the image grows clearer. If could b...

    The 1940s followed a time of war that began in the earlier part of the century. Many of the people of the forties were unaccustomed to war times; those who had lived during the twenties, when the first world war began, had spent two decades in peace, far removed from any warfare. When the Second Wor...

    If art is defined, as is supported by the World English Dictionary, as “the creation of works of beauty or other special significance”, then it can be supposed that something is only considered art if it has a creator. Assuming this, and assuming that nature is art, it can be inferred that natur...

    At first glance, one might believe that any generation preceding this current age was inferior, incompetent, and set back in comparison to today. People everywhere will speak up to say that life was harder “then”, whenever “then” was, and that it was practically impossible without today’s ...

    Let the agony fade, Fall from the anguish. Let the sadness languish, And the fear evade. Stand here with me, Your fingers in mine, Let our bodies align And our hearts be free. Step forward and back, Sway from side to side, See beauty abide In the restraint we lack. Place your hand ...

    A young man, barely grown, Off to face his country, To not be another drone, Prepared to leave his family. A noble cause, a steel will, The need to prove them wrong, Pushes him onward still, Through thick and thin, still strong. His pride strapped across his chest, A backpack strung beh...
