    There is no doubt that words possess strength incomparable to any man, beast, or machine. The power of thought, its permanence once implanted in the mind, is second to none. Yet this might is inconsequential if it is not acted upon. Even the most innovative ideas remain scratches on paper until they...

    A sepulchral warning seeping from the tips of your body A slow wave of paralyzing harpies’ songs As cold and death and warmth and light Balance to find equilibrium and it’s numb Everything is numb and there is nothing and there is everything And the nothing is creeping from the outside in ...

    Howl’s Moving Castle is known by most as a whimsical animated tale directed by Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli, however the original tale was written by Diana Wynne Jones, and although it differs from its motion picture counterpart, delivers a just as entertaining and endearing adventure. The tal...

    My eyes are moving as fast as my hands, quickly, but slightly delayed as the plumes of smoke cloud my sight. I reach for the tiny beads of orange flying through the air; the fire has given birth to a new breed of insect. Just as a toddler hopelessly chases the bubbles that have floated away too high...

    For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Sound familiar? It should, the preceding was Newton’s Third Law of Motion, the law of reciprocal action, and it has a meaning that extends far beyond the world of science. Simply put, everything in life comes with a price, price having to d...

    The world’s first monotheistic religion, Zoroastrianism has its own unique people, rich history, and ever growing culture. It is a fairly homogenous group, which cannot be simply related to just one country. Through a series of political events, the religion and its people spread from its ancient...

There are many inherent risks to civilians during and after attacks due to the nature of the weapons. Though they are intended to destroy enemy vehicles, personnel, spread...

    Gone are the days where social taboos controlled the nations of the world; today cultural behaviors, ethical beliefs and scientific behaviors all converge to form a society where the bizarre is expected, and nearly everything seems to be larger than life and extreme. This is a world where distances ...

    Not too long ago, in the jungles of India, lived a herd of elephants. These elephants were known throughout the animal kingdom as the wisest and most intelligent creatures, except for one. He wasn’t quite the youngest elephant, but he certainly was not the oldest. His wrinkles were not deep and cr...

    Before I am even able to slip my ticket into the far depths of my pockets, I can tell I have made a grand mistake. I have been cheated. The stub reads ‘The Gallery: Votre Choix’ implying mystery and riches to a person like me, whose knowledge of the French language begins and ends with my usual ...

    There’s a very fine line that separates insanity from reality, however there was a much thicker wall of glass and mortar keeping me from him. I suppose that’s one of life’s quirks, a distinction of the mind so fragile it often goes unseen, must be delineated for the world with crudely construc...

    You said I was your princess And that tiara you gave me, Handmade and hastily cut out Bejeweled with Crayola shades of ruby Well, it made me feel royal But this paper-crown princess Was always destined to the shredder And I’m thinking back to the Inflatable latex castles I used to call h...

    A hundred hands surround me and reach out to help. But when I try to grab one, to hold on, I come up empty. My palms are bare save for the beads of sweat and jerking tingles the hopelessness makes me feel. All I want is a friend, or a confident, all I need is a fellow human. And...

    Let me light up the sky for you, Help you swim the ocean blue Float back safely to the ground While I'm dreaming, homeward bound. Somewhere far I know you rest I am east and you are west. But it matters not tonight, Nightmares plague me, though I fight. Let me light up the sky for ...

    I'm not suicidal or anything, but sometimes I just want to shoot myself. You know that feeling when boredom reaches the brink of no return? When you're just itching to slam your book down, leave the classroom and tour the country in the back of various pick-up trucks? Maybe my English clas...

    They met by chance, though she liked to call it fate. But really there was nothing fateful about their meeting. They were an odd match, but it didn’t matter because they were perfect for each other. People would warn her that sometimes the person who’s best with you isn’t the best for you. She...

    Voltaire was truly a merciless author. Candide, his short novella, questions large events and key characteristics of the 18th century by throwing them all onto a blissfully oblivious young man named Candide, for whom the work is named after. Candide is constantly barraged with hardships and sorrows,...
