Vote 5/6

Here’s the latest in the Vote series. It’s the night before the election, and I don’t know if I’m going to have a fiction or poetry piece. I think this is going to be a rant/plea/stump speech on why you have to vote tomorrow. Let’s just dive in. Vote 5/6 I don’t know if you’ve…

Vote 4/6

I haven’t been having a good couple of weeks recently. Bad luck comes in streaks with me. And things usually get worse before they get better, as the cliches suggest. This is about a certain situation I got myself into recently. When I get myself in these situations, I try to find silver linings. Here,…

Vote 3/6

I have another poem for you all. We’re five days away from the most important election of our lives. I’m reading reports saying early voter turnout for people ages 18-39 is up significantly. The blue wave is real, but we can do better. We can always do better. I hope these poems are making a…

Vote 2/6

I decided that I’m definitely going to continue these next few posts that lead up to the election as a voting series. Now is not the time to forget the importance of voting as Trump continues to distract. He knows his political career is on the line in this election, so he will do and…

Vote

The election is almost here, and I’m not sure whether or not to be nervous or excited. I’m a little bit of both, but leaning more towards nervous. It’s hard to be excited when Trump is president. I’m really hoping enough people turn out to make the GOP voting restriction efforts useless, but that’s going…

If She Was Your Daughter

I was debating whether or not to make this a political story, but these past few days have made me realize that these kinds of scenarios are being politicized whether we want them to or not. The Kavanaugh hearings were not the first time Republicans have turned a man into a victim while ignoring the…

Relatability

I saw a discussion on Facebook about the word Relatability and, apparently, it’s another one of those pointless debates in the literary world (see: the Oxford comma) that seems to split older generations from the younger. Maybe it’s because younger generations weren’t taught grammar properly? Maybe older generations are misinterpreting what younger generations are saying when…

How You Lose One

I’ve been reading Catch-22 for a while now and I’m really loving the book. It’s hard to read it and not laugh, and then feel bad about laughing because this book is critiquing serious issues our country was facing. What makes the pain even worse is that all of this is so relevant today. It goes…

Branding Issue

If you’ve ever seen my personal Twitter account, you know I’m a left-leaning voter. You might? also know I voted for Bernie this past election. You would definitely know how much I hate Trump. I’m at a point right now where I’m tired of seeing how big of a role corporations play in our country….

The Line

Here’s another example of what I’m looking to publish this Winter if you’re interested in submitting to Come and Go Literary. We’re living in crazy times where lines are crossed and nothing is being done. I want to get something done through writing. I want you to want it too. The Line We’re nothing if…
