365 Writing Prompts: Silver linings

Write about something you consider,”Ugly”– war, violence, failure,hatred—but try to find beauty, or a sense of hope, in your thoughts.

I consider war, “Ugly”, I write this because I think of all the lives that are lost. My thoughts are with the innocent children who are orphaned at a very young age, young wives who become widows.

The casualties of wars is heart wrenching, so many people are in a state of chaos. They lose their homes, part of their family. It is worse when the ones who survive the war lose their capacity to work.

I wonder where is the silver lining. Maybe if I think of it from a practical point of view, the war is waged when it endangers the safety of the people,for example Adolph Hitler’s plan to conquer the world. This war was necessary because it saved our world, and stopped Hitler from his evil designs.

Our free-write is back by popular demand: today, write about anything– but you must write for exactly ten minutes, no more,no less.

Last night I was unable to sleep. I bought a set of furniture without seeing, I only saw a picture of it.When it was delivered I thought something was not right.I took out the picture and saw the company sent me something different and to make matters worse it’s too large and ugly.

I went back to the store but the sales lady wasn’t there, I went the second, third and fourth day but I wasn’t getting the answer I expected to hear, i.e., we’ll take it back.

Today she finally said they’ll have it picked up on Saturday,which means I’d have to wait two more days, this is so frustrating.
