Wrote as a child and into my late teens with some promise of a bright future. Lost sight when life really started. Had a bit of a rebellion, moved out, got the any job to keep a roof over my head and food in stomach. Settled down, pushing numbers into larger sums. Have two kids, two dogs, and two cats. I'm bored with life. My 10 year old self saw more, alot more for me. Trying now to regain that self. Opening up with writing again is terrifying. My palms are sweating, my stomach is turning, and I feel more true with myself than I have been in years. I hope I can get some positivity in this forum to feel more comfortable and relaxed in my writing. Thank you.

The Gallery / My Name
« Last post by Gen on January 16, 2018, 01:35:08 PM »
When I was a kid, I truly hated to be called Jenny, still do. It isn't my name or close to it. My grandparents still call me that, even after I asked them to call me by my real name. I have tried to make it my own by Gen, making sure they know the G is present. Jennifer and Jenna aren't me. In the past, saying my full name was almost embarrassing, fear of questions, accusation, and it being mispronounced. My name is my pride and my secret for my closest friends and family. Whenever someone learns it and says it correctly, I get a giddy surprise that they cared that much for me to get it right. It isn't all of me, but only a piece. Something I was born with and plan to die with.

The Gallery / "Life's a funny old thing, Son." A Dad story.
« Last post by Gyppo on January 16, 2018, 01:23:25 PM »
"Life's a funny old thing, Son."

Dad never spent long in the past,
he had a philosophy of the now,
living the moment.
It served him well.
But sometimes he'd slip away
into the warrior's reverie.

Briefly lost in another time and place,
reliving a distant time.

"You alright, Dad?"
He knelt by his motorbike,
paused in mid repair,
spanner in hand,
eyes turned inward.

A shake of the head,
light returning to his eyes.
"Yes.  Just thinking...
If it wasn't for some bloody A-rab
with a damned great log
you wouldn't even be here."

"How's that, Dad?"

"I went to rescue another Matelot,
outside a bar in Port Said.
He was getting the thin end of a fight
with a bunch of A-rabs.
Several of us joined in.
The last thing I saw
was a sea of striped robes
running at us,
and a bloody great log,
coming straight at my head.

"I came around in hospital
at a shore base,
and my ship had sailed.

"The man who took my place died
when a tin-fish came calling,
straight through the stoke-hold."

He shook himself,
like a dog shaking off river water
after a swim.
Came back to the present.
The shutters were down again.

He wiped his oily fingers on a rag
then tousled my curly little head.

"Life's a funny old thing, Son."
