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 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

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.
    “I knew you’d forget it.” Her hand instinctively reached for the glossy, callous granite that bore his title, and almost just as instinctively, she began to weep. She wept not because he was gone but because she was left behind.

What Happens in The Brewing Diner

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...

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.

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...

green walls that we always joked were the face

the warm air (when the heating was on) and 
smiles over the chatting of the TV.

to sleep on those restless nights, speckled with 
stars and blessed with hugs and goodnight kisses.

Unsolved Equations

PROMPT: Human Connections Essay Competition 2019


    Does time exist? Is it a concrete, linear function embedded into the laws of the universe? Or is it trivial, created inadvertently by humans in an attempt to understand the complexities of the world?

     Whatever time may be, there never seems to be enough of it. Billions of years between now and the “start of time”, but we only get a fraction of that. Is it enough? Can we, in these meager years, gain enough knowledge to unlock...

PROMPT: Inquiry Poem  | GROUP: Poets and Wordsmiths

in your stillness
you scare me
perhaps it is the moonlight
that makes your skin too pale
or the lack of wind
letting every hair hang
without movement —
i am not sure
you don’t even blink
just keeps your eyes
on the lake
like it whispers secrets
only to you
what do they murmur
what do they scream
what do you think
of me?

My Definition of Self-respect

PROMPT: Tweets of Self-Respect

Self-respect, to love yourself in every way, to see the beauty, even if it's in the flaws. To have self-respect, is to be content, with the person you are inside and out. Even if, you have to change, self-respect is the justification in your own thoughts. That is what I call self-respect.

Their quickening hearts burn,
As they wait for that bounce.
At the strike of the hand,
The tables will turn.
With every bounce,
They must see the land,
Where the ball will strike.
Back and forth,
'Til someone takes a hike.
Because of the hit that they'd miss coming forth.

The Desire Which Comes From The Boredom

PROMPT: Inquiry Poem  | GROUP: Poets and Wordsmiths

I often find myself
Quite bored,
When intelligence
Is a desired longing.
From human conversation,
To something that would test
My skills.
But I often find my desire tested,
When the world revolves around
A topic or device that I cannot relate to.
So I ask,
"How is that going for you?"
"Does your brain become wiser?"
"Do you find true happiness there in your virtual world?"

Fire and Flame

FREE WRITING

It started long ago, 
But now it has come to a new low. 
What once was green, where once children played,
Is now engulfed by the fire and the flame.
Where once was friendship and love, 
There is hatred and distrust, and no hope comes from above.
Because it has been swallowed, in an inferno of fear and blame,
By the fire and the flame.
Where once there was life and prosperity, 
There is nothing but death and animosity.

In suburban Sydney, where the grass is withered and warn, and the steak is always past its diary date, lay Tim lying underneath the bedsheets of his room. He was quite a peculiar child. Although he was terribly smart for his age, and had short, muddy locks seducing any girl in his grade, Tim kept an incorrigible secret. One which muddled every aspect of Tim’s mind, every day and night. One which caused him in this very moment to sit...

Her - Actually the First Poem I've Ever Written, so

FREE WRITING  | GROUP: Poets and Wordsmiths


Her ancestors used to lead a pleasant life,
Free of pain and strife.
But that all changed that day,
When the huge black ships moored at the bay.
The pale apparitions that came with the ships claimed the land their own,
And suddenly, so many things were gone.
Her whole life she had been oppressed, silenced by force,
The invaders’ hearts cold and their eyes without remorse.
But not everything was gone. Her beautiful children she still had,
Their love...

I let you break me into pieces
I let you take my heart
I knew that I wasn’t good enough
Even from the start

You gave me reasons to smile
You gave me a reason to love
but all I got in return
was one last, forceful shove

The day you told me, I had cried
Not only for you but for all I had lost
Because not only had you lied
but you took away my best friend
