I'm so sorry for ignoring you As I hurried past the bridge Where you lay huddled With a blanket of paper And a firefly for family I didn't care to look or stop. Lost in my own concerns and fears Which seem so ridiculous now But they made me blind to your sorrow I thought…Read more Dear Human

To Learn Or To Live?
Whenever students come upon the crossroad in their life where they have to make a decision about what to study at college or university, people find it very easy to advise them with the words “do what you enjoy.” This is of course great advice but there are a few things which can make it…Read more To Learn Or To Live?
Thank God My Writing Has Improved Since This!
Written nine years ago. I can't help but cringe at the lack of connectives and I don't know how I wrote that last sentence if I had already stopped writing! There have been two periods in my life where I maintained a diary for about a.month and both were when my mum went abroad. Reading…Read more Thank God My Writing Has Improved Since This!
Conquering The Moment When Revision Becomes Revolting
Now, since the end of secondary school, I haven't been an active participant in sports but when it comes to exams, I realise the importance of exercise. I am revising, I don't have time to exercise! This is the usual attitude during exam season as everything is pushed back after the barrier of the day…Read more Conquering The Moment When Revision Becomes Revolting
That Time Of Year Again..
When I hear people declaring that they hadn't revised during the holidays and that their exams are coming up soon, the first thought that enters my head is "why the hell didn't you!" Sorry. Perhaps they had something going on, a family matter or personal issues but those who didn't yet still remained in their…Read more That Time Of Year Again..
The Legacy Of Our Teenage Years
If you are a parent, are there some things you wish you had recorded whilst growing up to refer back to as an adult? To give to your children and say hey, I was like you once and here is my written proof. Looking over my childhood things, I began to think about how writing…Read more The Legacy Of Our Teenage Years
Against The Storm
Crouching behind a rock, Shelter in the storm Of words, yells and abuse Of kicks, punches and misuse, Safe. As it swirls all around Whipped into a frenzy like a tornado But in the eye behind the rock, It is all calm. Relaxed, content and a refuge, Till it creaks And a howl slips through…Read more Against The Storm
Fist Clenching Weight Pumping Body Building All-Conquering Mountain Climbing High Flying Bright Smiling Muscle Compunding Crazy Laughing Always Achieving Constantly Grinning, Angry. A short poem that I wrote a while ago and recently found on a creased piece of paper. Another coming up soon. A Worried Student
Striking Teachers: Love Them Or Hate Them?
Whenever a teachers' strike is announced, the government always cries out that it will damage teachers' reputations. What a joke. I say this not because as a student it means a day off-though that would have played a part when I was a child-but because it is a pathetic attempt by the government to persuade…Read more Striking Teachers: Love Them Or Hate Them?
The Catastrophe And Chaos Of Chargers
I hate chargers. They are always breaking, or making phones and tablets break. When I got a new (brother's hand me down) phone, I told myself that I will take great care of the charger so that I will not have to shell out ten pounds in two weeks for a new one. I managed…Read more The Catastrophe And Chaos Of Chargers
Simply Telling Children To Stop Playing Video Games Will Not Work
During the holidays, my youngest brother’s claims of boredom got me thinking about my childhood and the things that used to keep me occupied. There were times when I would be bored but at the age of eleven, I am pretty sure this was a rarity. Of course, my brother was only bored because he…Read more Simply Telling Children To Stop Playing Video Games Will Not Work
Those Terribly Tempting Thieves
The thought popped into my head when I was walking to college today that I haven't bought anything online since mid-March. So? Well the fact is I do tend to buy quite a few clothes online, not huge expensive things but small items and they add up. So I began a detox. The first step…Read more Those Terribly Tempting Thieves
