  2. It’s a given. Moving sucks little green frogs. It turns your life upside down and inside out and makes you weep for the good ol’ days of not packing your life into cardboard squares. Can’t wait for this to be over.

    “What is this?”

    Anders returned the expression.

  5. I was given a raisin one day when out of no where it grew into a beanstalk. And up that beanstalk was a woman. And near that woman was a baby. And next to that baby was a picture of myself.

  6. Time after time, it was always the same.

    He’d awake to a sun that didn’t shine, to air that he couldn’t breathe. Everything given to him was empty. Wasted. Wasted on a slave.

    But he would go about his work. It was what his master required, and it he would give it.

  9. When something is given, you know what is to be told. In the past, or possibly the present, whatever it is, it is apparent to you, or the group of people at large.. Given can also refer to something that is gifted to you, in the past.

  11. It’s a given. Something everyone should know. Common sense isn’t common anymore, so nothing is really a given, is it?

  12. I was given this opportunity to write in front of you. I believe that be given something is a gift. I was given a cookie once and it was tasty. There are five letters in the word given. Being given something means you are responsible. GIVE IT TO ME!

  13. She was given a necklace. A necklace that explained everything and nothing simultaneously.
    Neither her or the giver particularly enjoyed the necklace.
    It was golden. With four types of stones: none of them matching.
    It was horrendous.

  14. I have been given four perfect gifts – so they must be from God! Each is a special blessing and fills my life with a richness that can not be described with only words.

  15. Giving something to someone else makes that thing something that has been given although they may not have wanted you to give them anything they cannot make that givven thing ungiven, so giving someone somethingcan be a way of imposing your will upon them. Now would anyone suspect you of trying to control them by giving them a gift? – of course they would, we all do it all the time and know exactly what we are doing. Even so, most gifts are well received and we thank the giver – which actually perpetuates the whole process and so the giving goes on….

  16. When I was a child I was given a bike for my birthday. It wasn’t brand new, it was blue, it had curved handle bars. It was old, and it embarrassed me at the time. When my parents gave me a brand new purple bike a few years later, I hugged my Mum and cried. I don’t know if I was happy or sad.

  19. There’s one day in our life that is unique from other days. It’s one of those memorable minutes and seconds that find us speechless. Like it was pre-ordained. You didn’t need to work for it. It was simply given to us.

  23. So many things are given to us. Our names, our parents. There are some things that we don’t have a choice about. At first, anyway. When you think about it, life has no givens. We can change whatever we want. Isn’t that beautiful?

  27. He’d given her something. What was it? She didn’t care. Not one bit; not at all. She’d given him something in return. What it was? He didn’t give a hoot. It was enough that she’d given him something.

    A smile is all that was needed to be given to one another. A smile is all that is needed to brighten anyone’s day.

    By Lis on 07.02.2011

  32. An offering,
    Burning cinders, in remembrance
    Of what they once were:
    An offering,
    Smoking petals, a payment
    In debt to the earth.

  34. a given circumstance is something that you can’t control.
    most of the time.
    you react.
    you feel.
    you respond.

    i want to be more in control of my reactions.
    i want to be a human.
    but i want to be my own god.
    my own animal.
    my own everything.

  35. i’ve given all i can, and yet, you still haven’t returned the gesture.
    aren’t relationships supposed to be a two way street? really?
    that’s funny, because you’re so good at taking and taking until i have nothing, yet you never GIVE.
    i’m done.
    i’m not giving you another chance.

  36. The things that she had been given were plentiful; she had never wanted for anything and lived among frivolities. The things she cherished most of all were those that were neither tangible or exposed, safely squared away in the storehouse of her mind.

    By anonymous URL on 07.02.2011

  37. why? given is such an interesting word. it can mean something beautiful and something to cherish but this single word can mean something completely different to someone. maybe you do not want to be given something, maybe you think you don’t deserve it. maybe you know you deserve it but still don’t want to be given this because it will be a constant reminder that you will never be able to give anything back. thats the beauty of giving. sometimes you know in your sub conscience that you needed that reminder, a reminder that a friend loved you so much she was willing to give you something that you need desperately despite the irrational and inconvenient circumstances that might fall upon them because of willingness and their unconditional and irrevocably love for you. that is something that you can sometimes never be able to return…

  40. I was given a silly word to write about when really all I wanted was some inspiration for my novel which was already about 4,000 words behind. I didn’t really know what to do, but all I could think was to open write or die in a window and write as fast and hard as possible.
