Writing Competition Voting #1

Welcome to the 1st round of voting for our writing competition! The prompt was to write something based on a quote.
For now, the authors will be anonymous so there is no bias.

I had a dream

i had a dream
that i would gleam
that women would have rights like men
but why arent we equal to them
we can do everything a man can do
lets take cue
we women are stars
chase your dreams and go far

I do not excel at yodeling

my friend
was being
annoying
so I
said to him
this morning
"if you
do not stop
your screaming
“I will
start loudly
yodeling”
and I
leaned in
and whispered:
"I don’t
excel at
yodeling
And then he left.
Xander Hawthorne, “The Brothers Hawthorne”

Inspired by Whitney Hanson

When I put flames down on paper,
I wonder what they’d see,
If they would even take notice me
They never do, and then you see
We are children of the weeping willows,
Drowned in our own tears.
The world is so big
And you are so small
A tiny speck on a sandy shore
And you might fade, seen no more
But you are far from insignificant
You are a star, a snowflake, all your own
You are not just in your own story
You are more. You are in my story too.
And you matter, so
Please
Don’t
Go
Just stay.

happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the lights -Albus Dumbledor

When lights go dark and hope is gone
A little light can bring us along
Though through the night the shadows may grow
A spark of hope has its golden glow
A single switch, a gentle spark
Can guide us through the deepest dark
For happiness can still be found
Even when darkness surrounds
Just find light and let it shine
And joy will follow close behind
