    In.   Out.   In.   Out. Breathe. Through your mouth, Not your nose, Practise the pattern.   Put on your flippers, Your mask and your life vest. Climb down the ladder Or jump off the edge To the cold and unknown depths.   “Don’t be frightened of the statues,” The crew...

    Leaves crunch under my feet. It’s late september. I got to drive to the orchard.   Wind whipping in my hair, I control the speed. My jeep travels smoothly along the gravel.   At the orchard, Children are skipping, Holding their parents’ hands.   Crisp. Sweet. The scent...

Frozen embodies the stereotypical Disney movie with bad parenting, princesses and true love which overcomes tragedy. However, the stereoty...

    Four Questions It was a normal fall day, similar to many before it. I drove to school after stopping at Starbucks for my winter usual: a Venti Vanilla Chai Tea. Back at school, I slid into my favorite parking spot: not too far that I was in danger on days with weather predicaments and not too clo...

    Should we allow people to stop our love? Or prevent the most honest of feelings? Or shall our love fly free like a dove Hidden deep in the darkness of evening? Shall we throw away all worries and fears And live out our love content forever? Or hide what we have for many sad years? Friends w...

    This can’t be me Trapped in a valley low I can’t breathe An escape is what I need Looking around but no where to go This can’t be me Wishing for something new to be A new way to be shown I can’t breathe Looking up, trying to see Where am I? I don’t know This can’t be me ...
