New Year's Hell

PROMPT: "The Things of Peace"  | GROUP: Ukraine Dispatches: War, Migration, and More

Happy New Year's Eve, everyone. 
Today marks the beginning of the end. Bells jingle, carollers sing, champagne pours. Candles burn, music plays, celebrants laugh. 
The world is on the brink of a revelation, just like every other year. Everyone expects something magical to happen as the clock strikes midnight, so people rush to clink their glasses and make their resolutions. This year will be different, they say. Tomorrow, I'll be reborn. 
Wishful thinking, almost foolish, one could say. 
Where does...

Story of the Ring

FREE WRITING  | GROUP: Ukraine Dispatches: War, Migration, and More

It was no gold
Nor silver was embedded 
But I was told
It was important for the fate

.This wasn't a family ring
Not a proposal either
It's still so special
For the unborn's heir

.This ring was just unfortunate
That saw the blood of Palestinians
And now it was thrown
By the merciless to Ukrainians

.Even the rapist are roaming freely
And the murderers are just charged
Now just tell me their wrongdoings 
As to why are they being...

Wake Up

FREE WRITING  | GROUP: Ukraine Dispatches: War, Migration, and More

    For most of you, my writing is not going to be astonishing in the slightest. If you're just here to humor yourself and indulge in yet another session of useless pity for the heart of Europe, kindly move along. If you came to help, stay. Whether it is to help yourself learn, to spread awareness, to make a donation, to share the news - stay and listen carefully. Now you might be thinking: "a lotta nerve you got...

My perspective of Ukraine VS Worldly situations

PROMPT: Fighting Pushback  | GROUP: Ukraine Dispatches: War, Migration, and More

The Ukraine war, a talk that has been going on for many months now, but still has not come to a conclusion, a stop. People who took an interest at the start are now incorporating this incident of war as part of their daily lives. They are starting to lack concern and awareness for these citizens who are still suffering and waiting for an answer in their bleak lives. Their sources of hope, in others, have vanished, and they only...

Screaming for help

PROMPT: The Helpers  | GROUP: Ukraine Dispatches: War, Migration, and More

  There are children screaming.  Women hoping, men dying, family killing.  All because one man wants to go out with a bang. Odd, that he wants to be remembered for murder.  Why are we teaching our children to kill for what they want?  What's funny to me is that for a solid week, it's all we heard.  Now, I can wake up any day and Ukraine may no longer be.  What will the future be if genocide is just beyond...

PROMPT: "The Things of Peace"  | GROUP: Ukraine Dispatches: War, Migration, and More

Under blankets we fish of the sea
Under eyelids we birds of the free
Under lies we masses of the spree 
t’is fear is but underneath 
tasted all t’is peace in earth tea
The same blue and green

No War

PROMPT: "The Things of Peace"  | GROUP: Ukraine Dispatches: War, Migration, and More

The 24th of February. Birthday. A simple girl with mixed blood of Russian and Ukrainian people, living in another country, wakes up and goes to check social media to see messages with her congratulations. However, she doesn't find anything from her friends or family. The flooding news took over every social media. At first, she doesn't understand anything but a few minutes later it hits her with such tremendous force and her mind starts swirling with the worst outcomes ever. ...

We Only Get 1 World

PROMPT: The Helpers  | GROUP: Ukraine Dispatches: War, Migration, and More

We only get 1 world. 1 Earth. And the way things are now, Ukraine, Russia, Covid-19, On the edge of World War 3. I don't think that things are the way that we want it to be. We only get 1 world. 1 Life. But we have many ways of living. In love, Religion, We all are separated. Divided. There is no 1 right way, or wrong way, of life, But all of this is separating us. Making us divided....

Isle of the broken

PROMPT: Defining Moments  | GROUP: Ukraine Dispatches: War, Migration, and More

I settled to bed in chamber white 
By me, me alone, I see tidings of the miraculous sea 
The shore grazed 
And edged nails, laughing bones
The placid sands already pierced through, my red waves
Blood there, and here to boil just a little 

In loving mirage, settled skull crabs watch the rain
Comet the retina, fall the good evil heaven’s cascade
Just enough, hear its soul northern screams, alive just enough
Snow sleeps and dreams, what could have been...
