The Boy Who Wrote a Fable
There once was a boy in a World Authors class. His teacher had a creative approach to the material, so the students were each assigned to write a fable.
"This will be a very fun assignment, and I am an excellent writer, so my fable is sure to be great, and I will get an A plus," said the boy. He started to open his English book to find the definition of a fable, but a clever idea struck him. "I know, my moral will be 'nothing lasts forever' and I will write about the life of a Twinkie," he said, "and I will surely get an A plus."

Nervous MovementYou're a dime a dozen in a sea of billions.
Individuality has no significance in numbers so vast.
And while this fact makes looking forward hard
we can't keep living in the past.
You're a nervous movement in a freeze frame scene.
Steady hands won't help hold up such a fragile act.
And while you take your time keeping character
you fake what you can't take back.
With nothing more than a thought we form our actions
and this is where we extinguish the lie they tried to invent.
The lie that we painted our lives without passion
well conclusions are useless with no attempt to commence.
You're a song I can't name stuck in my head.
I've listened to you before and probably will again.
And while I can hum the melody all day long waiting
for it to hit me I still won't know where you've been.
You're a gust that has never changed direction.
Nothing can touch you you're only felt as you brush skin.
And while you can't be stopped nothing lasts
nothing escapes time not even the wind.
