The place for the more artistic minds
First thing, this is actually not a Story, but more of fan fiction, if you would like to call it that, or a writing thread in general. I'll be liking you to post poems of all kinds(Would they be haikus, poems or whatever else of types there are), short scribblings and riddles into this thread. If you'd like, we(the dwellers of the forum) can also judge your piece of writing.
I'll start with an old poem of mine. Yay! ^.^
Can thou it brother, the drums that drill into our hearts?
Can thou feel the disapproval of gods that are eternal?
Can thou see the darkness that starts to dig throught our hearts?
Can thou smell the greenery that dies behind out steps?
Can thou taste what has become of the ground that we raise our food on?
Everything is ruined because of our natural defects.
Those natural defects that make us a part of the human race.
But is it all worth it, that is thy question, and it cannot be answered.
"Our posturings, our imagined self-importance,
the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe,
are challenged by this point of pale light.
Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark.
In our obscurity – in all this vastness – there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves."
- Carl Sagan
