I have no idea what's going on. I know the world is crazy and messed up in a lot of ways, but I feel so ignorant. I watch the news, I sit back in my chair, and I try to figure out what it all means. What's my opinion on those matters? What side do I pick? The answer is the scariest part: I don't know. There is no clear cut answer, and there is no solution the will make everyone happy. I always liked being the mediator, the rational one, the most level headed, but lately it seems that everyone is either all or nothing. I want to fight for what I believe in, but I don't even know what that is. How can i be a good resident of planet earth if I'm too scared to really be apart of it? It's just very disorienting. And terrifying. And mentally exhausting. If aliens are planning an upcoming abduction, I readily volunteer.

Hey there, random proser. I have a question for you which varies based on your genetalia (you'll understand why in a moment; I promise I'm not sexist.) If you are biologically female, describe what a period cramp feels like. Or, if you have given birth, describe the pain. If you are biologically male, describe what it feels like when someone hits etc your family jewels. I understand this will likely make people uncomfortable. But I feel like many people have trouble describing pain and also, as writers, we write about tons of gory topics or *crude* things and thus are used to this kind of stuff (at least I think we are and I know I am.) Thanks for reading this and good luck.

It Once Snowed

If shola is a boy then Chiwendu should be too, when they have loved the life created for them by family, how sweet could this be?

In the tender of their love, they kissed, and had the best romance any lady could have asked for. Chiwendu could be my only bride as Bisi would promise.

Everything has its peck of purging out that which was most precious, yes that which was most precious. Is it possible to love a stranded stranger with no history? Quite a few would debate on this but yet it may just be the best kind of love.

The Movie.

Every soldier has seen the movie telling him how to be a hero.

Every hippy has seen the movie telling him to revolt.

Every lawyer has seen the movie telling him how to win.

And every junky has seen the movie telling him how to die.

We're all actors in a movie called modern life.

But the truth is stranger than fiction.

The truth holds less reward.

The truth is not seen by millions.

The truth doesn't win an oscar.

The truth is a higher purpose.

The truth isn't the acceptance speech.

The truth rewards the tribe.

The individual must find the path to helping his world and not just himself if the film can ever end.

The revolution must be bigger than a Facebook post.

Mental 'illness' is a gift.

When you're feeling adrift and abandoned in a sea of happy, perfectly functioning, socially smiley hugging super humans.

Remember... It gives you more to muse.

It makes you aberrant from the hordes.

It's gives fuel to creative flame.

Without it you'd be them.

And they don't even want to be them.

To be normal is to be dead before you've lived.

To be normal is to be a part rather than an idea.

Be rewarded by your rarity.

Take pride in your peculiarity.

It's not an illness if it makes you better.
