The Chances

Vicious curling arms encased the smallest of seeds

Wrought in fear and darkness of the acidic, unfeeling minds;

They creep ever so slowly to rot the virgin inside.

 

A solitaire princess, atop the glass throne,

Never forgives and rarely forgets the tragedies

From seeking the dearest hearts to look upon her broken mirage.

 

One flight was all it would take, one touch to break the spell

To conquer the ocean, and thus to live a free soul,

Crossing the unknown and that which is known to man…

 

One word could alter the chaos, and set right the pendulum;

While the Father can only watch, unwilling to aid,

The brushes of fate keep fading with the moon’s shadow.

 

As the telltale thunder bolt that stopped the flood

Crashes against the wall of the human heart–a flesh easily wounded;

A spirit unbound by tedious patterns hides itself in diffidence.

 

Growing, it shall gain wisdom; feeling, she shall gain dreams,

As the seed flourishes, a kinder being smiles,

For the chances that had been taken were but a whisper of the heart

 

Of how a young maiden would paint the garden of Eden

The colour of contentment, an ever eclipsing happiness

Rising and ever transcending, unsurpassed in its magnitude.

 

Then the seedlings shall soar above the yearning clouds–

A wish to escape the cruelty of fences that break the fragile branches;

As the witching hour waxes, they shall wound us no more.

Jackanapes

this word has a funny history of how it stuck to me. back in high school me and a partner were supposed to guess what a word meant and we had the word ‘jackanapes’ and our chairs were facing the door to our classroom and i said ‘is that a monkey?’ thinking about our word, when in that exact moment another teacher walks into the room. my partner looked at me shocked and i was like ‘what?’ then we burst out laughing.

she thought i meant the teacher was a monkey.

Using Tink for a Character Name is Scary…

so anyways, here i am making good time in studying my course materials for monday’s test. woohoo!!! am i pumped to study this or what?? lol, but seriously i understand this better than i thought i would… i realized that i often daydream or space out during class and miss almost all of the most important lecture points. damn you, overactive brain. lol so with a bit more reigning over my mind, and what do i get super easy studying times =) damn, it feels good let me tell ya.. better than i expected. it seriously goes along with my best clinical year as well. so now i will rest and wake up early ready to face the COPD notes and onto the Dysrhythmias and Heart Failure  and Coronary Artery Disease. so wish me luck and good karma will smile down upon your kind hearts. seriously, wish me luck.

and also is Tink a name no can ever use again just because Disney owns the original fairy character? what if i use it as a nickname for my own character [not a fairy, just a 12 year old girl] within my own story? will i lose originality? will that be plagiarism? but how could you plagiarize a name? how do you lose originality using a name that someone else used? i mean, the entire population has loads of Tinas, Kimberleys, Michelles, and Janets. is tink an exception to that rule? but i seriously i know someone who actually has the nickname ‘Tinkay” [if you are filipino, then you would know not to read ‘kay’ as /kay/ but read it as/kai/.. lol i just disclosed my ethnicity right there]. anyways, feel free to speak your mind on this ‘Tink’ matter; i’m totally at a loss whether to keep using the name or completely abandon it.
