Hi, fellow human beings!! So today I was very stuck on what to write. I write a lot of creative pieces in a little notebook of mine, so I thought, remember that time I posted a poem?

There was no time to think, she dropped the stick , her last hope of survival, as it clunked to the ground, and ran further into Nowhere, where she could never be found.
There’s no turning back now, she thought, her last thought until…
