Dragons RisingA flurry of wings,
A flash of light.
The villagers' faces
Lit up in fright.
I draw my sword
And stand up tall.
Not just for myself,
But to fight for all.
A majestic creature flies overhead,
Calling out its battle roar.
A deafening shout rises up in return,
From people ready to go to war.
Flames curl around my shield,
Expelled by the great beast.
Soldiers shoot arrows to pierce its armor,
Determined not to be a dragon's feast.
The fight rages on,
Butchering several of the finest men,
Until the dragon, worn and bloodied,
Retreats to its own, safe den.
A cheer rises up across the land,
But not for very long.
A realization enters our minds:
The dragons will still come back strong.
So here I go to continue my journey,
Searching for dragons far and wide.
'There are none to vanquish the Dragon-Born'
I think, adding a spring to my stride.
An Anarchy Christmas Soft rustling filled Cameron’s ears as he pulled the whetstone along the blade of his knife. The sun was just setting and he wanted to be prepared in case stragglers decided to meddle with his camp to steal his supplies while he slept. After awhile of sharpening the blade, he licked the edge to test the sharpness. A pinprick of pain told him that it would adequately sever a head and he placed the knife under his pillow. One last look around told him that he should be safe for awhile before any stragglers found his camp. He scuffed out the fire he had used to cook his dinner so it wouldn’t give away his location and lay down on his bedroll. Mentally, he recorded the 147th day of his traveling after North Korean radicals had attacked the government and plunged the United States into darkness. Not quite the end of the world, but the end of the world as every American had known it.

Famous Last Words
Follow your dreams! Don't let others tell you what you can and can't write about. Writing is supposed to be your way of finding happiness and showing people who you truly are. Done right, writing a story can be very fulfilling. It's not about the audience, it's about creating characters who are a part of yourself.
