In February this year, the writing platform, Sweek, conducted a writing competition for Valentines’ Day. This story is my official entry for the competition, and although the competition got over a long time ago, I’d love for you to read, share and send your feedback!
I’ve just joined Story Wars, an online community of writers where you can write drafts for chapters of different stories, and compete for the majority vote. The draft that wins the vote gets selected to become the next chapter of the story! 😀
I have heard that, in the end,
Love always wins the war.
But in smaller battles,
When the gunman grins,
And flowers start to wither,
And hope melts away like candle wax,
And brothers turn against each other,
And angry embers are what remain,
Of seething, hateful flames…
Prayers cannot heal our burns,
Nor will Victory bring with it Peace.
