  1. The ball pops up, high in the air. Fuck, too high for me.

    I turn around and start sprinting, but the ball’s descent is fast. It bounces but I’m not there yet. I try to catch up. Will I make it? At the last second, I go for it.

    The fabled tweener.

    I don’t make it, but it was good attempt anyway.

  4. Determined is such a strong word. Steadfast, and ever so large. Like, no matter how many misty mountaintops stand in your way, you can always be sure that you will get through the things that make life hard. The father who was always there for you, the mother who broke her back to never let you know she was struggling, determined to give you a life she never had, nor will she ever.

  6. Focused, a path in mind, someone who sees their goal and does whatever it takes to reach it. There is no deterring this person. There is something they want and the go and get it. Something that I wish to be someday.

  7. But the truth is, I am not determined. I never was one to fight for things to be exactly the way I wanted them to be. Perfection is never enjoyable. Some say i’m missing out on what life truly has to offer , but I say they’re missing out on the ride of experience, grabbing on, letting it take you where ever it wants to go. Laziness can be a spiritual journey, a realization that your existence is enough, never having to prove yourself to others. You already know that you’re capable of doing it, so why bother?

Do something. no change something drove this man to insanity. which road to take? the least traveled? but then who will i help who will i see and who will see me. then the path that has worn its self in stone. ahh but them i am a follower, a nothing, general and typical. words of poison that seer and shrivel at every casting of their judgments.

  9. I am determined to not fall back. I can’t think about it, I can’t think. What were we talking about? Determination isn’t there. It’s an illusion. What?

  10. tired to think about it; but you persist in conversation, unwrapping new things, you think that you might like me (just tonight) tandem bikes and wedding planners, you are young only so rarely, i won’t even feel bad for keeping you up (i don’t even know this town that we’re walking in, it’s this automatic motion you’ve found me in, i’ve been stalling and i don’t know why)

  12. Firm and unchanging the will of the world forced the girl’s fate upon her, thrusting her against the very grit of her dreams and her inmost nature. The determined destiny was given to her, but she did not know her own determination could overcome that.

  13. I don’t find myself to be very determined. I mean, I like to think I am but who is to judge anyways? I’m a college student. Determined should be my adjective of choice. I wish it was easy, but there are so many distractions. One say I will be. Hopefully.

  31. She swaggered through the hallways, chin high and stoic expression in place. They didn’t think she could do it. She would have to prove them wrong.
    She loved a good challenge. Always had. And this one was perfect. She would walk into that battlefield with her confidence as her only weapon, and she would win. She had to win. She needed to win.
    And, of course, she won.

  32. I am a determined person when I set my mind to it.
    Though I scarcely ever set my mind to it,
    Which makes me feel like a terrible person.

    I have a little bit of time left.

    And I got more than a little tired of the whole thing. But by golly, I’ll finish it in December..

  35. Determination is one of the best things that drive us to do amazing things in life. Without determination, I don;t think anything would be made or created. it could completely stop the process of imagination all together. It’s determination that makes us strive to be a better person.
