Witness protection

New identity created

A whole new life crafted

In a meager few days, encompassing years

It would be so hard to start all over again

But it was all done to uphold truth and justice

I’m starting a new life!

WAR

Now I don’t want to give you any preconceived notions on where to take this prompt for there are a lot of different wars in this world.  Perhaps its the war on the back yard grass, perhaps its the war with the second cousin who scoffs all the drinks, perhaps its the war on your dwindling self confidence, perhaps its Errol Flynn’s war on the woman in Hollywood, perhaps its another type all together.

“Idiots!”

She was fuming.

This isn’t the way to do it, Julia thought.

A stickler for grammar, she couldn’t understand why this new generation couldn’t spell or write properly. 4u and gr8 weren’t words in her vocabulary.

It will be war now!

I miss you, brother!

There was a time that we were best friends. Now we hardly ever talk to each other. It’s not that we are estranged, it’s just that we both are too busy with our lives.

I hope you’d call!

➰➰➰➰➰➰

Paying respect to false idols

And yet expecting things to improve

Look down, see feet of clay

Look in their eyes and see Betrayal

Your deity lives within your heart

Look inside, not outwards for help

Just wish for help with sincerity

The white man bid for the black family held in a cage. He got them pretty cheap.

His plan was to put them to work on his plantation.

A hundred years later, the slaves are the owners of the plantation. Karma works.

Fairies at play

Joy and laughter all around

Trolls jealous of their happiness

Tried to wreck their kingdom in rage

Fairies were no weaklings, but courageous

They knew how to defend themselves and theirs

The trolls defeated and repelled with forceful velour
