Have you ever written something
just to
fill
up
the
page
?
Random nonsense that no makes
sense.
Everyone has done it
or I could be lying,
but you'd never know that
would you?
Unless you are one of
them,
one of
those
people who write with meaning
and heart.
I guess
they
have never listened to
Tina Turner.
I have,
but I could be lying about that too.
I might be an ant
for all you know.
Granted a very large ant…
or a very small computer
you'll still never know,
but do we ever know anything?

Too serious?
I agree.
Lets never speak of this
again.

Written just so I could give it that lovely little title. Written in a conversational tone. Enjoy.

Oh. I keep going, normally pausing to punch them lightly in the shoulder and go "Are you listening?!?!" in a whiney voice. xD

"According to some, heroic deaths are admirable things. (Generally those who don't have to do it. Politicians and writers spring to mind.) I've never been convinced by this argument, mainly because, no matter how cool, stylish, composed, unflappable, manly, or defiant you are, at the end of the day you're also dead. Which is a little too permanent for my liking." — Jonathan Stroud (Ptolemy's Gate)

haha I loved that!!!!!!  It had me giggling and thinking at the same time.  I have to admit to having thought that way before (and to writing something just to give it a totally ninja  title), and I love the way you wrote the thoughts down! ~AsIAm

I agree... some parts are kind of choppy. I don't really like the ending. Never have.

Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.


Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.

The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed.

Never apologize for showing feeling. When you do so, you apologize for the truth. ~Benjamin Disraeli


Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. ~Dr. Seuss


Confidence comes not from always being right but from not fearing to be wrong. ~Peter T. Mcintyre

I like it! It is a little bit too choppy in some parts, but other than that its fun and creative!

as if the page were the cup...

that small change would really top it off!

Thank you very much! I'm not really sure of my writing style, myself. I think I'm still constantly evolving, so I always look forward to my next piece.
