  1. I was determined to do this. “You can do it,” I kept telling myself over and over again. I stood like that for at least five or ten minutes in front of the building. Suddenly I realized I must look like an idiot standing there just watching at a house. Or a stalker.
    I had to do this, I knew. So I took a deep breath and knocked the door. It was opened pretty quickly.
    “I believe I am expected?” I ask. My first day as a prostitute. If only my mother could see me now.

  5. I am not this. I have only been this twice in my life. Once when he was not mine, and once when I didn’t want him to be. This word is the bane of my existence, the nagging at the back of my mind. The scratching in my throat.

  6. neurotic brain untangled
    like a puzzle piece missing
    her mouth turned upside-down
    i want to get better she screamed
    in b-flat
    a chorus of shrieks played upon her lips
    i want to get better
    i’m determined
    she popped a pill
    bill high
    all was quiet.

  8. Determination is key. One without determination has absolutely no purpose on this planet. harsh, but true.
    Where would any of us be today if it weren’t for those who were completely determined to discover something new. It doesn’t matter what it is you are determined to do, because in the end what it is you are determined to do, is all about, and all up to you.

  9. I was determined to win this one argument on particular. I didn’t want him having any custody of my child, let alone full custody. She was my little girl, and when it all boiled down to it, I was the one who birthed her, I was the one who protected her, and when she needed a parent to love, I was there for her, unlike the man she called her father.

  10. I am determined to write for sixty seconds it should be easy since I like writing. Why do I like writing. I like writing because I can slow my thinking process. It’s reflective and I like thinking about thinking. I determined that sixty seconds is pretty long and I’m surprised I can write this much in only sixty seconds.

  13. Yes. She would. She would win. She would win this, and would become the role model young girls need so desperately. She would change everything. She stepped out on the stage for her campaign speech, knowing she was going to make everything better.

  14. I was determined to do something. All the gaunt faces, devoid of life and with fake smiles that didn’t reach any eyes, they haunted me. I woke up screaming from nightmares as I dreamed of the fates of those girls chained up inside that building.

  15. The determination was making her crack
    (like a porcelain doll)
    The determination was breaking her back

    Livid and living

    Crack a smile
    (Or your spine)

  34. determined i am. For what i am not even completely sure. Determined is a state of being where you know that you can achieve something. Achievement is good. The state of being determined. Whats funny about the word is the fact that deter is in there. having a deterred mind doesnt sound like it would be a good thing but it actually is. Whatever is to come from the determined mind is both awesome and scary, depending on who it is and what the cause is. I like being determined. Holding the state of determination is quite difficult to be honest. I dont know exactly how people can hold it. I wonder if there is a place in the brain that determination is active in.

  36. The voices around her were only whispers in her head. The faces were so blurred, the world so indistinct. All she could hear were her stomach’s constant cries. Crying, crying, crying. She tried to wipe the tears away, screaming inside for the sake of pure discipline.

    Yet in only a moment, her body was sprawled across the floor.

  38. dad
    you were young once
    so passionate
    now you’re old
    less determined
    do you see that in my eyes
    i’m exactly like you
    a faded memory
    a yellowed photograph from 1979
    when you were my age
    a smile
    we aren’t different
    but the memory lies.
