Today, I thought it would be fun to share a creative writing assignment I wrote for English because I thought the prompt was really interesting and fun! Basically, we had to write a short paragraph (200 words or less) on something we would want a teacher to teach us. Let me know what YOU think I want to learn from a teacher from reading my assignment, and then comment below your idea so we can put the clarity of my writing to the test! Ha, anyways, I hope you enjoy 🙂
The pen is said to be mightier than the sword. So, why do these words I bleed onto the page drip between the cracks of a sharpened voice? You can clutch my words against your chest, crumple them in your fist, and use them to blot your tears. Yet, so often chosen are the spoken words whirling around. Why? Spoken words can fly free amongst the birds, but eventually, the sun’s merciless breath will melt the wax fastening them together. With wide eyes we then watch them plummet into the sea, confidence their hamartia. Remind me why I keep writing despite this. Why I empty my soul and let it pour into the pen gripped right here between my fingers. Will I have it in me to try again? To pick up this pen and write? Remind me that my words can last centuries, like the ones scrawled in the books I devour because spoken words are too wild to tame inside a book. So, teach me how not to let my words get lost in the shouts and rustling of paper. Help me to ensure that my words will live on forever, safe in the hands of those seeking strength.
Yep, that’s it! Short and sweet, right? Anyways, I need to get back to reading The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand, a MASSIVE philosophical book I’m reading for an amazing scholarship opportunity. Let me know if you’ve read this because I am only a few pages in but have discussions churning inside me. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post, as well as my social media accounts linked down below! Thanks for reading 🙂
