Every empire crumbles
Every hierarchy falls
There comes a time when someone fumbles
But every falling has a cause
Every event has a reason
People may wonder about the time they’ve spent throughout the seasons
Is the falling their faulting
Or maybe it’s their opportunity, their calling
Preventing this chain of events does not exist
We just have to look at it like its pure bliss
Because maybe it’s the moment we cannot miss

NaNoWriMo Day 7

“Go and make interesting mistakes, make amazing mistakes, make glorious and fantastic mistakes. Break rules. Leave the world more interesting for you being here.” – Neil Gaiman

Woo-hoo! You’ve made it through seven days of NaNoWriMo. Give yourself a pat on the back. At this point, you may be losing motivation. The thrill of writing might have gone down and you’re dragging your feet when it comes to writing. You already feel burned out and you may even begin to think you have writer’s block. Every writer gets like this, especially when there’s a deadline and a word goal. Don’t let your ambitious goals wear you down.

NaNoWriMo is supposed to be a fun learning experience. When you focus more on your writing goal and less on what you’re writing, it’s going to take away some of that fun. Remember why you’re doing this. It’s not to show off to your friends that you were able to write a novel or to have the biggest writing goal in the whole club, it’s to get a new experience that you can carry with you through life. It might even next year’s NaNoWriMo easier for you! If you even just agreed to take the NaNoWriMo challenge, you should be super proud of yourself. Participating is a big deal, whether you meet your goal or not.

As you continue through the many days and weeks of National Novel Writing Month, keep in mind that this is something you write now and edit later. Let yourself make mistakes and have as much fun as possible as you write this month and you’ll be so proud of your novel in the end, as perfect or imperfect as it is!

NaNoWriMo Day 6

We write,
As our word count expands to high heights.
We face challenges and more,
Sometimes it may feel like we are facing a locked door.
Try as hard as you can,
And stick to your plan.
Because in the end, it’ll be worth it,
So, keep the good spirit.
You’re doing it as a team,
So, make up a good theme.
Writers’ block,
Everyone gets the shock.
It’s difficult I know,
But as you overcome you will grow.
The last word you type,
You shall believe all the hype.
The relief is surreal,
When you finish your spiel.
NaNoWriMo is here,
Everyone endears.
For a good reason,
So, soak up this season.
It only comes once a year,
So put on your gear,
And motivate your peers.
Let’s do this and be gutsy,
Because we’re CWC!

I believe humans are good
And we should Come together
Love one another
We are all good inside
Even if we try to hide
Our smiles at times
We all have hearts
Even if the world
Has taken away a part
And made it hurt
Making that person curt
All they need is happiness
Trust
Love
Someone
To show them
It’s not over yet
I hope I can be that person
To someone who’s hurting
I hope I can make someone smile
Every once in a while
I hope I can light up their face
Sharing with them wisdom and grace
I hope they can go a week
I hope they’ll stop screaming
I hope they’ll start believing
I hope they start seeing
That life is good
Like it should
If you could
Change it

You know what they say a tired soul never rests easily. A broken heart never fails to tell a lie and blood shot eyes reveal too much of what’s within.

Mind’s of tumbling thoughts are thieves because we’ve never even truly gotten to witness ourselves being happy.

You could say our brain is thunderstorm and our thoughts are lightning that strikes us everytime.

We never seem to learn, that time is valuable..and every stop sign that passes us… We never take the hint that we’re wasting valuable time.

When a devil and angel rests upon our shoulders, this is where we start to question who we truly even are.

It’s funny how eventually, you hear about everyone around you having two faces but, yet only one face appears.

Not only are we lost in our own minds but, also in the world that surrounds us.

Eventually, we have to draw our own life line and save ourselves.

A Letter to My Friend

by Sarah Branch

It makes me sad that your life has come to this.
I know we’re getting older, losing childhood bliss,
I try not to judge, but you’ve done things I can’t dismiss.

I can barely believe you’re the person I used to know.
You didn’t communicate all year, then we met again a while ago.
I wanted to be friends, I wanted to fix what happened, I wanted you to still have your glow.
I’ve heard too much, you’ve said too much, you’ve made yourself into my foe.

I guess you felt differently towards me, you never wanted to talk.
I still check your social media, though I don’t mean to stalk.
I just want to make sure you’re okay, but how blind I was makes me gawk.
I’m tired of being ignored and used, so it’s time for me to walk.

The truth is, I still care, even if I can’t keep you around.
I hope you get better, I hope your life gets happier, I love you and I probably always will, but I just feel like a clown.
Our friend told me what you did and it made me more than frown.
It makes it worse that everyone knows you, everyone in this town.
There’s no way to escape our five years, it’s so hard to calm down.
