Resist The Feed - I’ve been doing a lot of research lately and have come up with so much information. We can fight this. Titus, we can resist the Feed. Children have been fighting against their oppressive governments for years and making a difference. I am aware that writing this letter is dangerous, but I am not risking any more than the “218 million children around the world who work as child labourers or the estimated 300,000 boys and girls who are exploited by armies during times of conflict, and forced to act as soldiers, sex slaves and servants” (FreeTheChildren.com)....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 1172 words

The Immortal Life - I am, Henrietta Lacks, and this is my story. My personal war on cancer was lost. I have died in pain, tormented by the tumors covering my body like a web, at the John Hopkins Hospital. But my life didn’t end at that point. Unexpectedly, the cancer tissue, which was taken from me by Dr. Gey, continued on living. Even though I was dead, my cells were alive - full of miracles to unfold and misery to cause. The wonderful abilities of my cells were praised all over the world – they were a hope of finding the cures for the diseases that never though to be found....   [tags: Creative Writing Examples] 1669 words

The Dark Knight - I was dressed as a dark knight or rather, what the Knights of the Blooming Orchid thought a dark knight female would dress. My armor was a metallic black with foreign designs inlaid on it. It was strapless, covering my chest, but emphasizing what little cleavage I possessed. The armor continued down to my hips and stopped. The metal was custom-made, only fitting, as well as showing off, the curves of my body. My boots were made of soft, sturdy leather dyed black to match the night. The boots went up to my thighs leaving about a foot of white skin between it and the armor....   [tags: creative writing, imaginative writing] 1489 words

An Unforgettable Adventure - “Mister Klemen … Mister Klemen,” repeats a voice which is quite familiar to my ears. All of my senses except one are numb; however I try to open my eyes to see what is happening to me. The last thing I remember is a long iron bar striking my head from the front. Since then I am able to hear this voice which has a slight Cuban accent. Shortly, I am able to come to my senses and open my eyes. A bright beam of light is blinding and disabling me to see my surroundings. It only takes me a few seconds to realize that I am tied down onto a chair with metal shackles around my wrist and ankles....   [tags: creative writing, imaginative writing] 1983 words

Salvation Lies Within You - She never quite knew what was expected of her, nor did she care. After high school, she did not even attempt college, it seemed too pretentious and cliché, paying to “learn” more about the world instead of actually living it. She longed for other ways to expand her mind. As the windowpane rattled under the soft torrents of rain through the streets of the Manhattan village, Veazey sat, knees bent to her chest, wondering what was to become of her. “Waitressing, is such bullshit” she thought. It could hardly pay her rent, not to mention provide a meager meal once a week....   [tags: Creative Writing] 4294 words

No Tears - Gabe Smith lazily dragged a small, snaggletoothed comb through the bushy crop of hair several times before he felt satisfied with his reflection. His eyes jerked down to his watch for the time, his first day on the job would have been starting in nearly fifteen minutes. Upon further examination, a jagged, red scrape presented itself upon his sun kissed skin. He ran his fingers over the scab, wondering just where he could have picked it up.

The Angel - “What’s wrong, Colton. Had it been another grueling day at work?” My wife had affirmed by my wistful facial expression, as I walked through the door. She sat me down and started gently clenching her soft hands on my tense shoulders, messaging out my utmost distress. It had become a ritual; returning home from the department in terror, after envisioning the Flames. The flames, I had thought to myself.

Waking Up Dead - He hated waking up dead. The shock was bad enough. The feel of it -- the sensation of a thousand bugs burrowing up through his flesh -- was worse. But worst of all was the loss of memory. There was a period, every time he died, where he knew neither who he was nor what had killed him. As such, each time was as bad as the first. He woke up gasping, clasping and clawing at his skin in a vain effort to dig out the worms and biters he could almost see writhing beneath the surface.
