I’ve seen many things end and begin in my life, even if they are not things that are on a stage like Trifectra. They have been something to me and though I have mourned their ending, knowing that each ending can be another’s beginning has given me joy within that sorrow.
Thank you, Trifectra editors, your challenges helped me learn that you can say a lot with only a little.
It looks like the Trifectra editors are closing the weekly prompts and though I will miss the weekly stretch (I’m usually too wordy when I write) I am all the more grateful to have been a part of this competition.
Many say that life is unfair,
At the cost of living many will survive.
Never let it be unsaid that I am unwilling to
Put the worth of others above myself.
Underneath the layers of lies, I hide myself.
Life is not fair, it isn’t supposed to be,
Anyone telling you differently is in it for something.
Teach me how life could be fair, because
Eventually I hope I can make it more so.
It is not the purpose of the world, of life, to be fair. It is the purpose of those of us born in this world to try to make it so through our own actions or inaction.
My resolution for this year is to finally finish the novel I started for Nanowrimo and have been working on ever since. This is the second draft of this story and sometimes I just want to say it’s done even though it’s not just to make it go away.
It’s a fusion world between two series that I watched a lot of back in the 90’s: Sailor Moon and Star Trek. It’s a weird fusion that was inspired by one of the best friends I had as a child. In a way they kind of compliment each other, but also disregard certain things from those two fandoms.
