A Child’s Heart-Short Story

I’ve been submitting this short story for contests for years now and it never won anything. I think it’s time to share it here and see what everyone thinks. Hope you like it! ♥ A Child’s Heart. With one loud “Bam” a life ended, her soul was setting off with the wind, as she caught…

The Struggle

I’m struggling to learn that you can’t really save the ones you love from making mistakes. You can’t protect them and shield them from life. It terrifies me and shreds my heart into pieces that I can’t prevent a lot from happening. However, I’m certain that I can only show my loved ones unconditional love and…
