100 WC 2-20-2020 Ella

It's the year 3067; there's nothing left but dusty smoke and painful diseases. Life in the 2000s is all gone. My mom showed me a picture of my great great grandmother. It was a picture of her in a pink dress while standing next to a giraffe while she sang about them. We looked a lot alike. I wish our lives were alike. Funny how they had clean air. Funny how we can't even go outside without a hazmat suit. Funny how they had clean water because we are running out.

  1. This piece reminds me a lot of Jason Reynolds' work. It is a short piece, and yet your word choice gives me the sense of something much longer. The opening gives me the setting, then in the middle I have a sense of happy reminiscing, and then the theme comes through so strongly at the end with your use of repetition.

  2. Wow! You did a great job setting with tone. The contrast of now and "then" really worked on my mood. Nicely done.

    Keep writing!
