  1. Before I woke up today I thought I would die
    Before they called me out of the darkness in my mind I thought I was already gone
    When you see the earths come forward too fast and then hear the screams of others in the distance slowly following you into a terrifying sleep

  2. This is the same word I had before, ha ha. What will the next word be, after? So before I found this site I was thinking about resources for teachers to use at the Ed Tech Cadre. This could be used as a great “Before” class begins with a writing prompt.

  3. Before Hurricane Katrina, most people I know in New Orleans were much more materialistic than they are now (whether or not they were willing to admit is another story). 7 years later, most have simplified their lifestyles and priorities. Often it takes a horrific event to re-prioritize one’s values.

  4. Before the world began I was there. Hidden, in the cracks.
    Before the end began I was there. On every map in every seam.

  5. The land before time, WHAT A JOKE!!!! I MEAN, HOW CAN THERE BE A LAND BEFORE TIME?!?! It just doesn’t make sense!!!

  6. when i went to town it was dark, too dark to see anything at all. the lights had gone out – all the street lights. that orange glow had disappeared. rubbish lay in the streets, blown about nonchalantly by a lazy breeze, you could hear it, and feel it – plastic bags brushing against your legs.

  7. Before he came, my life was empty. The smiles, the laughter, the happiness wasn’t there. But, the day he fell in love with me and I fell in love with him, everything had changed from that destructive relationship I was trapped in before. Now, if anything, I was free. I was a sparrow flying, <3 Siempre Contigo <3

  8. Before I came here I was only a small boy from a small farming village. There was no chance I could get an opportunity to be able to get into this place, but now I am, what do I do? Be like the rest.

  10. Before the day we parted twain, and I
    Suppressed my tears seeming unconsciously
    (Perhaps your wisdom, though, painted clearly
    Truths locked away from my own blind mind’s eye)
    I leapt between my thoughts as they chanced by
    My sleeping brain – thought woken fancily
    By selfish, haughty me – and carelessly
    Passed away hours of immortal supply.
    You loving silent stood and watched my play,
    Not ever

  11. Before I opened my eyes to the world, I was fairly happy. Not great, but happy. Now I can’t help but see the world for what it is.. and I don’t really like it. I guess I’m happy I opened my eyes. I was happy, but I was dumb..

  12. Before, everything was different. I was different. We were different. Before, for me, held promise–there was hope, things to look forward to. When everything happen, you broke that for me. I don’t have hope anymore. I don’t have promise. I have only the empty, aching hurt inside that you left me.

  13. Before you,
    I was nothing-
    I was empty
    I was lost.
    and then
    before we knew it
    everything thing we thought,
    was a dream
    became reality.
    was amazing
    we lived, laughed and loved
    one another
    and the music inside me
    came alive.
    and exploded from within me
    into a million colors
    and I could see
    oh, the sweetest feeling
    of just existing-
    and being human.
    Thank you, my dear
    for giving me that.

  14. Before I met him, I was miserable. He definitely woke something in me that brought some much happiness that I have not felt before in such a long time. I hate to think what things would be like without him. Before him, I was a completely different person.

  16. Before the after. It’s never during. Before can be exciting. During can be painful. After can always share the joke of it all because there’s no longer anticipation nor the heavy lifting, it’s reflective.

  20. There is always a before to everything. Like something that causes a problem, you think to before it happened and try to figure what caused it. Other times it’s like a story, and you try to see what happened before to a character to turn out that particular way.

  22. Before everything was like this, it was way different. Before there were even computers and all the technical stuff there was a whole different world. Before the people started to fight for everything and money. Before there were even bombs.

  24. Before I was born my mom endured a lot during the nine months I got to keep her company. I gave her back pain, she gained a lot of weight, and her ankles grew huge. Not to mention the constant nausea. However, with all that to endure my mom really loved me and was really excited to see me. Now she has a great relationship with a great daughter that she bonded with since day one in the tummy.

  27. I always right about before, whenever I go to school before 1st period my mom says I love you. My dog at home always goes to the bathroom before he comes inside the house. My biggest fear is missing the first bell and getting a tardy before the semester tests.

  31. He laughed. Loud. This girl was still hilarious. She shouldn’t have been. She should have been upset and terrified. But she was nothing of the like.
    Yeah, she wasn’t what one would call sane. At least not completly. But she wasn’t as broken as him. Maybe not broken at all.
    She made him feel calm and colected. Nothing like what she made him feel before, but she put him out of his madness.

  34. Before I saw the bear, I thought to myself how nice today had been.

    Leave the office, go on a walk, do some exploring.

    Now I’m staring down a fucking bear. Where’s my camera. Wrong brain. Run. No.
    Shit. Too Late.

  35. Six months ago she smiled, a sun shining through the curtain of her hair, and I would push the curtains away, tucked behind her seashell ears. Sometimes a strand would stick to my lipgloss and come between our kisses, but no time did I mind. Her shampoo always smelled not sweet, not poppy-like, but like something you would throw in a kettle of hot water, and drink when the lemonade stand is packed up, when the wooden planks echo a wet forest. One day I walked by a store and saw a ribbon the color of tea leaves, and the next it was tied around the curtain, baring her face to the world. The sun shined on me again, and the background music played like a thank you.

    Now she puts her hair up in that same ribbon, but she wouldn’t be able to tell you where it was from.

  37. Before you act upon something you must spend considerable thought on our plan. Who will be impacted, why are the consequences of our action.

  39. there use to be a lot of things she disliked as a child. but she grew up. everyone has to, eventually.

    but something that didn’t change–something that stayed the same as before, as always–was her humor. it grew too, more refined, more adult. but, mostly, it stayed the same.
