Joy Streaked Sorrow

Gone for so long
I reach out once more.
I’m afraid to move on,
But I know the future is more.
 
This time not forgotten,
I will carry it always.
Within my heart.

Written for the final prompt from Trifectra: http://www.trifectawritingchallenge.com/2014/03/trifextra-week-105.html

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.

Thank you for your care

“How can this satisfy you?” she asks.

“Because I find that I am happy here.” I answer.

There is more to life than riches and gold, there is family and love and light.

A short conversation like one I have had recently with one of my sisters. She worries about me and though I am glad for her love, I also know that I am happy where I am.

An Experience

She closed her eyes and turned away, a faint smile on her face, a tear drifting down her cheek. The note lay in her hand:

Anna, it’s been an amazing experience knowing you.

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.

It has been an honor Trifectra!

Once We Were Different

When did it all change? When did it become so complicated? Once it was an honor and now it is a shame. We are no longer who we are; we’re now the same.

I wasn’t sure what I was going to write about and then this just happened. shrugs I write what I write.

Not Fair

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.

But not to be entered, because it just doesn’t feel like the one I want to enter. Anything else wouldn’t come, though. This demanded to be written.

One Resolution, Three Words

Finish my novel

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.


This resolution is brought to you by Trifecta.
