Which is Worse? (Kinda a mess rn, any help?)

FREE WRITING

Have you ever seen a loved one die?
Saw them take that last sweet breath,
And then to slip away by the hands of death,
And you tell yourself "It's just a lie!"

"They are not dead! I won't believe it!"
Looking at the face you loved! It can not be so!
Not forever, not today, and time moves to slow,
Grasping, shaking, I weep, my teeth are grit.

The months, go by and then the years,
You realize the...

My campaign speech to be the world's future president

PROMPT: Speechwriting Competition 2020

Spoken word piece: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIHyDQ-VkWk

Before I start, let me answer the one question I know all of you would have; why exactly am I writing a campaign speech for a position that doesn't even exist, and if it did, I am twenty-one years too young to run for? Well, let's see.

I am running for this position for one reason only; because the life we live is unfair. I am running for this position because I want to make a...

World Of The Future

PROMPT: People Power!

Why do you vote? Why did you want to grow up?
You were excited. I remember.
Your head was high, and your smile proud.

Your father shook his head, failing to understand why you were grinning like a maniac in reference to something as mundane as voting for goodness sake.

And I shook my head too, but smiling all the same.  

Rosa came over that day, staring at you with envy and admiration. 
"Seventeen!" she cried. "What an awful number!...

Superheroes

PROMPT: Speechwriting Competition 2020

Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Thor; who came to your mind when you heard the word Superheroes? Well, whoever you thought of, wipe their names off your mental chalkboard, and instead, let me tell, no, show you who the real superheroes are.
In light of recent events, we’ve come to realise that there are superheroes in your everyday life and you don’t need a bat symbol to summon them.
We have all struggled this year. Whether that be through the Australian...

Monsters in the Basement (Small Edit)

FREE WRITING

I place the giggling child on the bed, relieved that she'd finally agreed to sleep. I'd been starting to think I'd be up all night telling her more and more ridiculous stories as my imagination stretched thin to come up with something even slightly amusing. All in all, for my first time babysitting, things had gone swimmingly. 

"We can't let the monsters get you," I say in a last ditch attempt to convince her to stay still long enough to...

The one who escaped a fatal accident by one miraculous second cherishes that one second. The student who failed an exam by a single mark understands the significance of that single mark.

Despair - Novel Excerpt

FREE WRITING

Rayne tore through the woods. Mud lashed across his face. Rain battered his scales. The trees flashed white and black, piercing the sky like claws piercing flesh-

He shook his head. The rain drowned his gasps, the thunder roared over his pounding heart. Almost loud enough to muffle his mind.

Murderer.

The iron taste burned in his mouth.

You did that you killed him you-

Hail cracked against his scales. He hurtled deeper into the shadows. The black hole in...
