Who Am I To Me?

PROMPT: Human Connections Essay Competition 2019

    My friend said something really real to me a few days ago. We were in Java class. I bet you can picture it, gray walls, long desks, lap tops placed in front of each student, them busy clacking their keys. A mundane buzz of "do you get how to do it?" and "can you show me?" I had asked for my lap top back when she made a weird face. Now confused myself, I asked her "what?"
    "You...

you are an effigy of nonchalant affection
ripped jeans in the snug corners of a hollow december
i think you knew what i meant when i said nothing—
unsung feelings, glances laced with vitriol
you watched me sink into paperback novels
i lived in my head all the time


you did not understand me playing

with my emotions, bleed as they might
for lyrical mastery 
and the intricacy of a sob story

The Human Connection of Friendship

PROMPT: Human Connections Essay Competition 2019

I’ve always struggled with friendship. I’m extremely good at making new ones, but maintaining them has always been the problem. I always would heavily rely on them. It weighed both of us down. In my middle school years,the swarm of hormones hit everyone like a hammer pounding a nail. As a young transgender boy still trying to figure out who he was, it was a time of insecurity and acne. I lost many friends due to us growing apart or...

The Moon's Follies

PROMPT: Lunar Phrases

The moon is always changing. She starts thick and wide, full as a beach ball. Then she gets smaller, until she's small as my finger. Then she grows again. Why?

The moon is not a guiding light. She does not shine for others. She is but a reflection. A chunk  of rock to busy changing her appearance to notice the sorrows of people.

She changes her looks all the time, not accepting the true beauty she is.

The moon doesn't...

    She could feel the morning mist start to tickle her toes. She laid down a bouquet of lilies and a paint-chipped comb.

Saturday morning, Miss Alice Witchka walked into the Brewing Diner on the corner of 43rd Street.
“Good mornin’ William,” she yelled across the room as she hung up her hat.
“Mornin’ Alice.”
“Say, you seen the paper this morning?”
William stood behind the counter serving plain old black coffee to a customer who was doing a word puzzle in the said paper.
“No, haven’t had the time. This mornin’s been real busy. But I gotta stack right here. Anythin’ worth...

Human Connection

    Throughout my life, I have had many human connections, but there is one that has always been more important than the rest. It is the one that I have with my sister. We are twins and have gone through almost everything together. We have a very strong bond and we have always been close. My mother says that friends will come and go but we will always have each other. I did not realize that...

Florence stopped me, right before we walked into the dining hall. "Are you sure you don't want to sit at another table?"
"No, it's fine. I've been sitting there for two years. It's the last day of camp. It'd be awkward not to," I respond. That's me: prone to ranting when I don't know what I'm saying.
Florence grimaced. "It's gonna be fine. Are you going to confront him?"
I shrug. "I'm just going to say I can't believe he...

assimilation; a tragedy in six parts

PROMPT: Human Connections Essay Competition 2019

I was three when I gained the skill of my mother’s native tongue.

    My adolescent mind has lost the memory of those moments to cram my mind with formulae and history of people not my own, but my mother showed me a video of a smiling cherub struggling to navigate the terrain of our deck, legs splayed either side of her brightly-coloured vehicle. It was little more than a child’s luggage with wheels, but the words streamed out of my...

Let's Face Each Other

PROMPT: Human Connections Essay Competition 2019

Personally, I think our generation of children; even adults, spend too much time with a screen in their faces. Take my parents and me for example; I used to be addicted to gaming until my parents encouraged me to stop. I was actually getting bored with gaming, but since I was addicted, I couldn't take my eyes off. The irony is my parents look at their phones A LOT.

But, I realize now that
