• Jess commented on the post, dealer 5 years, 5 months ago

    I run along the street vendors and colorful wares in the rickety streets, swiftly turning into one of the darker alleys of the fearless city, searching for the beacon. Finding it, I realize I am one step closer to the man I am looking for – a dealer in the most feared and banned things in this land – Words.

  • Jess commented on the post, sniper 5 years, 7 months ago

    The sniper was lining up for the kill. The clever trap the feds laid out for him wouldn’t work. He killed because he got paid, and they were interfering with business. He pulled the trigger with no doubt in his mind that he had bested him. What he didn’t see was the agent silently moving towards him…

  • Jess commented on the post, gentlemen 5 years, 7 months ago

    You would think a gentleman would be kind or chivalrous. Well, he was the opposite. He didn’t know how to talk to anyone, obviously, otherwise he wouldn’t have insulted all he talked to within the first 2 words. Whoever this dude was, rich or not, he is one of those people that, as Solomon said, is a servant in fine clothes on the back of a horse,…[Read more]

  • Jess commented on the post, routine 5 years, 10 months ago

    They performed a routine perimeter check as they waited outside for something to happen: they know not what. A cryptic and anonymous call for action in troubled times and an address is all they were given. They have no idea if this could be a trap or a diversion, or if someone knew something that needed to be said and there was a just method to…[Read more]

  • Jess commented on the post, routine 5 years, 10 months ago

    my everyday routine was rather eventfully boring:
    dress at 5 am, eat breakfast, out to the barnyards and fields to tend to things.
    My farmer’s life was very repetitive, and I was happy to do what no one else wanted to,
    growing foods and livestock, the things that need to be done. Little did I know how much my life would change in but a months.

  • Jess commented on the post, transmission 5 years, 11 months ago

    The transmission was shot, the car stuck in the middle of the rough gravel road, a forest surrounding its sides. Her smart phone had no signal, and the city was miles away. But in the near distance there was smoke rising, perhaps from a cabin’s chimney. Better get to walking, thought Hazel.

  • Jess commented on the post, transmission 5 years, 11 months ago

    The deep space transmission was lost. After hours trying to decipher an encrypted message(or at least it looked encrypted), the static making every symbol barely intelligible, suddenly the signal was gone.

  • Jess commented on the post, drought 5 years, 11 months ago

    There was a terrible drought, and famine spread across the land like a plague. No one could believe just that short 6 months ago we were a thriving people group, with plentiful resources. Crazy what unexpected things can do to cripple you.

  • Jess commented on the post, seldom 5 years, 11 months ago

    I seldom go through times like these.
    The sun was low over the city buildings, the calm blues, burnt oranges, and bright pinks of the sunset a contrast to the violent and uneasy ways of the city.
    I actually felt comforted, in the midst of the newest development of utter chaos in this land that makes one disbelieve any existence of utopia.

  • Jess commented on the post, bluegrass 5 years, 11 months ago

    Bluegrass is the music i’m not quite sure of.
    It is somewhere in the country genre but not really.
    It is the color of the sky manifest in what should be green grass.
    Wait, what?

  • Jess commented on the post, catapult 6 years, 3 months ago

    I catapult myself out of my fears, out of my failures. But I need the strength of the One (Jesus) to just keep living on.

  • Jess commented on the post, catapult 6 years, 3 months ago

    I catapulted out of my cozy bed and onto the floor. I am 30 minutes late in getting up, who knows if I can make it. I rush to get ready and lunge out the door. Nope, I am too late, and have to spend the rest of my day regretting it.

  • Jess commented on the post, calamity 6 years, 5 months ago

    Everything was going black. My eyes giving out, trapped in a world of monsters in a pitch black abyss. This was all my fault, but even if I could help myself, ther was no avoiding this calamity.

  • Jess commented on the post, ahead 6 years, 7 months ago

    One could go on forever about what’s ahead and all the uncertainties of life, but it is useless. Live your life for others and make a good future, because no matter how hard you try you can’t be absolutely sure of everything that is ahead.

  • Jess commented on the post, ahead 6 years, 7 months ago

    What times are ahead I cannot be sure
    And will never truly know
    the prophesies will surely prove true
    But how I do not know
    I must learn
    to keep the future ahead
    And live, acknowledging my responsibilities,
    In the present,
    and make that future better for many.

  • Jess commented on the post, responsibility 6 years, 7 months ago

    You wish for childhood,
    The bold and the true,
    You mainly wish for the freedom of ‘don’t do’
    You wish for the days when you
    Had an excuse to be
    Without Responsibility.
