Write a short creative or critical piece that is inspired by any of the works that we have looked at this week (in lectures & tutorials)
Death & darkness surrounds me
The rumbled ground, stabbing the soles of my feet
As I walk through the sadness & despair of the past
Nothing but full of regret & tortuous pain.
Shall I go east?
To where the rusting bones of history?
Waiting, through the rustling weeds of sin & torture
For the right time to punch on their prey
And strip every single piece of dignity i have left
Or shall I go West?
Where a beaming bright light
enlightens the path ahead
vaporising every single thing that is covered in obsidian
reflecting only the things in life
in which we always take for granted
However there is something peculiar in the distance
glowing like the sunset
in the afternoon during the summer
The end of the lightened path
leads to a tree
with succulent fruit
blossoming from the flowers in which grows
The plant makes me feel warmth
stimulating the braincells that are left
with forgiveness and a welcoming vibe
do i dare to get any closer?
Will i burst up into flames
because of everything i have done in the past?
Or will I,
just be washed of the sins that are chaining me down
setting me free from the slavery of my mistakes
and become a new and improved individual?
The millions of thoughts going through my head
should i touch it?
should i consume the fruit it produces?
should i just stare at it?
or should i look through it
to see where it leads
Only one way to find out….
