"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them."
Henry David Thoreau

"I fell in love the way you fall asleep; slowly, and then all at once."
John Green


Breathe deep while you still can;
Veer from their ragged breaths which
Heave from corrupted lungs.
A word of advice:
Breathe graciously
While the air is still
Pure.

This originally started off as a Haiku, and then transformed into something all of its own :P

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

You inspire so much people, Hanban12! I thank you for inspiring me, and I'm glad that you inspire more people than me. You inspire, you just do. I agree with Liv.Harris tecaher's quote. You a truly wonderful person and writer. Thank you for sharing this, I love it.

And that is the best advice out there, to write like no ones reading. It makes my day to know that I can inspire :)

"To these the past hath its phantoms,
More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"
- Isabella Banks

You remind me of my sixth grade teacher. She told my work was too reserved, and she could tell I was itching to write something else. So she gave me a quote I will never forget "Write like no one's reading." I don't know who said it, but I do know that it inspired me. And so does your work! It makes me want to write something inspiring, maybe a little raw. Keep up the great work!

Can you feel what I have seen, when no one else has lived through what I have?-HalveOfLife

Dear Hannah, the world needs this advice.  Breathing deep and soundlessly, is the only way one can see the world for what is it worth.  Only way the wolrd would understand the beauty of ones inner soul.  Thank you entirely for writing this piece.

No words . . . This poem actually makes me think. I like the word choice and the overall meaning.

"I don't want to start, but I will." -the amazing ZE FRANK!!!

I love the sudden change in rhythm in the middle. At first the lines are longer with more complicated word choice and ideas, then suddenly: "A word of advice:" It's like you're jumping in, like an intervention. It shocks the reader to read the last three lines clearly. Well done!
