I enjoy writing random short stories, although this one isn't a completed one. It is based on the reaction, emotions, and different perspectives that impact others.

What is that you may ask? That is myself. The one that owns that thing, yet still doesn't know that thing. You are referred to as the "thing" because there is no other word to describe it. Yes, the world may see thin precious lips dull and beaten to a crisp, strangled dark hair disguised by millions of split ends, large luminous eyes that reflect an angry oceans storm racked against smooth stones, a nose not perfect but passed on from generation to generation somehow losing its form, and large ears probably mistaken for a cartoon character named "Dumbo." Ah, dramatic yes? When the world may describe this as "ugly," what does ugly mean? What is pretty? Is that all this entire world cares about, is being attractive, rich, and famous? Why do these words make your eyes bulge and long for such "luxuries?" That is what we seem to fail to discover. We may find ourselves finding false in everyone, sometimes being too critical. But it all boils down to the fact that we are all human. We are all different, but yet the same. We have different personalities that seem to catch an eye, and oops, there's a soul mate. We are dramatic, glory hogs, attention spoilers, and even unreasonable brats that always want their way. But who cares if we think we deserve everything in this world; we will never achieve everything! We will only achieve that what we want to achieve. We will only seek and accomplish what we discover. This world is complicated, but has hope, it's taken me until now to realize I can do anything I want to do in life. I can be a writer of my emotions.
