AT LAST THIS BEAST IS CONQUERED!
Just sent the e-mail to enter this in a contest for a $300 scholarship! The prompt was: "Descriptive Poem/Journal entry 500 word limit expressing challenges faced such as internal struggle, loss, strife, grief. After exactly eight drafts, I have made it as perfect as it can be. Of course, with the help of English teachers and some friends of mine who edited it and gave me some feedback. I would still love some feedback on this because I can always get better!
(And for those concerned, my grandfather is not dead, and he is slowly recovering from a liver transplant. This is merely a reflection on the emotions and the pain my family and I were going through. We are all okay!)
Word Count: 165
Daily Literature Deviation for December 22, 2013! Thank you!
Changed the last lines based on some feedback I've been getting!
