I’ve always wondered how it would feel to be surrounded by complete silence. Not the kind that you would find on earth. But the kind of silence that is so real and solid that it feels like an actual place, and not just a lack of sound. The kind of place where you wouldn’t even hear the sound of your own breath or of your own heartbeat. The kind where your voice, or the loudest of your screams, would be engulfed by the darkness, and lost in the shadows. The kind of silence that would show you...

A storm.A storm has come. And it still hasn’t left.She’s stuck within its heart, helpless to its power. It shakes her, spins her around, and flies her high up in the air before smashing her back down.It controls her like a puppet. It shows her the sun for just one second before throwing her back into the dark.Hope is indeed a strong thing. It’s killing her. Just when she thinks that the storm is over, just as she reaches out for the cloudless sky, she is pushed back into the chaos that it...

“Come on now! Smile for the picture! Say cheese!”Oh how much I have heard these words. I’ve always wondered why it was so important to smile in a picture. It’s for the beauty I guess, maybe to freeze the happiness in time, even though you’re usually faking the smile, and might not be happy at all. Actually, I find it strange how much a smile can change the face of a person, and even the image you get of the person behind that smile.I was taking a walk one day, and I crossed roads with...

Blissful ignorance. I just love that expression. Like my dad once told me: “The paradox makes its beauty”. It is strange how two opposite words can make so much more sense when together than when apart. Let’s define the exact meaning of each. Ignorance: also known as lack of knowledge, blindness, incomprehension, shallowness, mental incapacity. A term used to describe the simple minded, the people who can’t see further than their nose. On the other hand: bliss...

“I want to change the world” She was five, staring up at her dad, her heart filled with hope and wonder. He smiled at her and said “Yes, monkey and I know you will!” He took her in his arms and threw her into the air. She giggled till she couldn’t breathe. She remembered that day like it was yesterday. It’s a memory she’s always treasured. A memory that brings a feeling of excitement and eagerness to what the future will bring. Yet, being a kid is much easier th...

There are times when things around us change. And I’m not the first one to say: as individuals, each of us has to adapt to change. Yet, that is easier said than done. I’ve experienced change many times. All of us have. Whether it’s a new house, a new school, new friends and so on. Actually, change can be as simple as a new toothbrush, or a new smartphone. The only difference is that some changes affect us, and our lifestyles, more than others. The strange thing about ch...

I watched as the sky turned purple And as the clouds disappeared To find a gorgeous night sky Filled with stars so bright Their reflection in the water shined And later the moon came by Whiter than the most precious pearl in the sea Purer than the first laugh of a child Watching over us with love so intense It is hard to describe Minutes passed Maybe hours I lost count of time Because in moments like these Time doesn’t matter It is forgot...

I close my eyes The sunlight still bright behind my eyelids I feel it on my skin Burning like a flame Filling my body with heat Warming the blood pumping through my veins I lay back, slowly, carefully Until I feel the earth’s cold skin Sharp like a knife against the warmth of my back Sending a wave of shock through my body The breath of god enters my soul Fills my lungs with purity so strong I stretch my arms left and right Touch the dry mud...

Look at the horizon The sky is endless It goes on and on Infinite and boundless Look at the clear blue color Slowly changing with the sun Covered with puffy clouds Such a gorgeous view What if clouds were actually spirits? As many souls believed in the past What if the sky was the realm of the Greek gods? Or the home of creatures we’ve never dreamed of Indeed there were legends About the edge of the world The edge of the sky Where eve...

    I want to make a difference. I don't know how, but I think that Voices of Youth is my first step, and I am so glad that I can read all of your stories, and write my own for you to read.
