Literature
The Flow
           The Flow
I am gripped by the ever present panic.
Despite my efforts it won't let go, gripping desperately like a beggar child on the brink of death.
I am forced along, taken with the flow, overwhelmed to the point where it's over.
I go below, the tumultuous sounds of the water filling my ears and my soul with less than a second left.
It was once a friend but now turned foe, I battle fiercely; its like world war 2.
I the allies and the water; the flow, the axis.
Except this time, the axis wins; precise and clinical in its blows.
I swing my sword, shoot my gun, breath out my last gasp of air,
Hoping of some slim chance; a tale like the legends I heard as a child.
Those who went against all odds.
But that's all they were, legends.
In the end I had to let go.
A struggle I was destined to lose since the start.
Inside of me feels like a car crash, lungs crushed. Brain shutting down.
My eyes, they close for the last time as my soul leaves,
flying away

Literature
How we will last
I always hear people arguing
what's the best part of a tree,
I compare but not to compete,
simply to notice differences.
Not which is better or which comes last.
I reflect on my memories, who I am;
who I was and who I will be.
All of that, because of a sapling planted in the ground
which began to stretch its roots and grow
into a tall and mighty oak tree.
My idea comes from a leaf
that blossoms from a bud
which grows from a twig,
which extends from a branch
which extrudes from a trunk
that starts at the roots.
Then these roots plant themselves in soil,
using the soil to absorb the leaves
that fall from the tree
in order to feed that which grows.
You see, many times I have pitted myself against others,
throwing both of our souls into a Colosseum
where we do battle like two warriors;
fighting for their freedom.
Sometimes I win, but a lot of times, I lose.
My thoughts then reflect back to the tree
and all that it was, and all that it will be
and I realise something.
I am me and you, well

Poetry - Paradise
Paradise
The leaves blow in the wind,
Like runners racing for the finishing lines.
I watch a spectator of the marvels around me
Enveloped in nature and all of its glory.
The birds swoop, high and low
Over and back again and again.
Tall willow trees loom over the forest like ancient guardians.
The hares are racing to the nearest safe spot
Predators in full chase, hunting for its next meal,
For its survival.
I am the spectator, the watcher, the crowd.
The sweet scents of the meadows grace me every time I breath in that clear air from the snowy mountains.
I could almost name all the different scents from all the wild flowers basking in the morning sun, swaying in the cool breeze.
To stay here forever is what I want; it is my wish, my dream.
This uninhabited, peaceful place.
But then, I wake from my daydream,
And I see a different sort of wilderness, one filled with toxic fumes,
Cars congested, blocking the city streets, drivers blaring their horns, arguing for reasons even they cant fatho

Literature
The Fast Tortoise Prologue
This is a tale, a tale about dreams, determination and will. It is the story of one Tortoise who single handily set off a series of events that would inspire all others after him, a tortoise who shows that your dreams are never impossible, all you have to do, is BELIEVE. I am here to tell this young tortoise’s tale, a tale of ups and downs, of happiness and sadness, but most importantly a tale of courage and hope.
This young tortoise’s name was Tort.
I guess for you to understand his actions, what made him face all those perils and danger you need to understand where he was from.
Along time ago before humans came to rule the earth we know, animals roamed the planet, lived in harmony and peace. This world was led from a place the animals had christened ‘The Valley’. Everyone was happy and the leaders of The Valley made sure the natural order remained undisturbed leaving a balanced world.
But then one day a greedy demon lord known as Darkesh invaded, he was a powe

Literature
The End
In the end, all it amounted to was one tumultuous experience.
Sometimes, you feel completely crushed and helpless inside.
At other times, you feel as if you could conquer the world with nothing more
Than your sword of wit and your shield of humor.
And then you panic, because that's not how the world works.
Beneath its shimmering facade of beauty and happiness,
It's really not all that great.
You never know what's going to surface from the depths of the earth.
There are those rare moments when there's nothing that could affect you.
Nothing, anyways, below the vast blue sky.
You're so happy that it's a euphoric feeling.
That's when your world comes crashing down again.
Your lover is the one person who can wrap you around their little finger
And then proceed to play you like a violin.
You can't help it, though, because you're fascinated by them.
But they're the type of person who could smile as they destroy the world.
Your feelings fight against your logical mind.
It feels like you should
