Free Write: Mary D.

(before you read please note that this is not my opinion. It is simply just a piece of writing.)

 

I guess you could say this year has been a blast. But that would be lying. Some may say that spending more time with family and saving money makes up for everything. Well those people are wrong. Nothing can fill the emptiness inside but the emptiness itself, gradually sinking deeper into the skin like a tattoo. Everyone seems to find the silver lining, while all I see is reality. Are they so blind that they don’t see what’s happening in the ever changing world around them? Do they not see us people keeping parted like oil and water? Or the amount of gravestones increasing dramatically? No of course not. For it has only just begun. But I will say, this is a new experience to not only I, but the whole world surrounding me. And like all new experiences, we learn. Maybe next time things will be different.

  1. Thanks for sharing, Mary. Do you seen the amount of gravestones “increasing dramatically” due to one particular thing? And, if you were to re-title this, what title would you give it?

  2. Sorry, I would re-title it “A New Experience.” And to answer your question, I myself do not see the amount of gravestones increasing dramatically but many others have. This story is not my point of view…rather, it could be anyone’s.

  3. Mary, I liked how I felt like I was reading a professional piece of writing. I liked how you used “Nothing can fill the emptiness inside but the emptiness itself, gradually sinking deeper into the skin like a tattoo.” this simile that you have used was wonderful . Great piece of writing.-Addison

    1. I totally agree with you Addison, Mary did an excellent job on this . I think this shows that people can be open and express what they’re thinking. Nice job Mary!

      1. This piece of writing is not particularly my opinion, but I guess it expresses what other people are also feeling. Thank you.

  4. Hi Mary, I really enjoyed reading your Free Write. My favorite line in your piece is, “Everyone seems to find the silver lining, while all I see is reality.” I feel like everyday, everyone around me is telling me to try and find the silver lining, and I am tired of hearing that. This piece is extremely descriptive, and you did a great job!
