This Generation's DecisionTake a bow and take a stand since we are not what we had plannedThis Generation's Decision by Owari999
We were told to only dream and we would have our everything
But dreams have faded with our youth and we're the slaves of fastfood booths
So do we stand to tear it down and destroy every gilden crown
Or are we left alone to fade for bitterness to hold our days?
Happiness was just a thing that sold us papers and diamond rings
The icons we grew up adored are hollowed, emptied by de jure
They dealt us broken future lands and make us pay retirement plans
Are we to be the slaves of yore to serve the childer of wealth before?
Can we not still deny the fate that keeps our debt at endless rate?
How can we owe them a dime while promised much in jingle rhyme?
The SeaI never saw the seaThe Sea by Owari999
as a friend in chivalry
Or a dreamy place to be
Or a place to visit free
The ocean is, to me
The one true tyranny
For the land bows to our might
But the ocean's not our right
The sea is vast and fast and wide
And not a thing to be denied
It cares not for the lives of men
We treat it as an eggless hen
But one day the swells will rise
And men will reach a grim demise
For daring to think they restrained
That which will rise and kill and maim
half awake philosophyDoes that heart pump fear and hate?half awake philosophy by Owari999
Can you still show them all you're brave?
Are you a wounded fighter, then?
Or a leaking broken tin?
Use a metaphor like that rapper you dig
But top-tier wordplay doesn't make you big
Not like people care, it's something else
Timing? Luck? What puts platinums on a shelf?
Maybe you should take a nap, leave that for someone else
Letters to Teachers winner and New Prompt!Well done to all who entered the Letters to a Teacher prompt! It was tough once again, deciding on who to choose to feature as the winner this month. Lots of letters, lots of emotions and lots of creative ways to get in touch 'virtually' with some old forgotten people. I love how everyone gave their letters a personal spin - really great job to you all.Letters to Teachers winner and New Prompt! by Kaz-D

October Prompt: Letters to a Monster
rules apply! Get creative and write a letter to a Monster fictional, figurative or lurking under your bed. Since it's October, and Halloween is fast approaching I thought it might be appropriate to encourage some spooky or insightful letters. Maybe even both!

How about a creative project for art and writing, maybe even photo or photo-manipulation. I guess it could apply to any kind of art, but outside of writing it could get more challenging.
Think of a setting, how about a park? Your character is sitting on a bench. Describe what is going through his or her head, what are his or her motivations? They should be dark in nature. There is no requirement for this other than that. You'll need to describe the environment an
