Chapter 1

Everyone makes wishes,

Hoping they'll come true;

But doesn't that make us selfish,

When no one wishes for you?

When you cry,

People turn the other way;

If you'll die,

It'll be like nothing had ever changed.

If we're all equal as human beings,

Then why do many still suffer?

We're told to cooperate, yet we still disagree,

What's the point in working together?

I want to be a child again,

When my innocence made the world seem like a better place;

It's not fair to have to bear the burden,

To live in a world that is ongoing a drastic change.

If I close my eyes,

Will I be able to dream?

Horrendous views have filled my sight,

Is life really the way it seems?

Are we meant to be slaves?

Of the ones who are privileged;

Do they really expect us to simply behave?

While they push our sanity to the edge.

It's not fair!

We don't deserve this;

Yet no one cares,

It's simply the way life is.

Maybe one day,

Several generations from now;

There will be a change,

Where human sufferance will not be allowed.

So pray with me,

To set our spirits free;

To liberate them from all the pain and suffering,

So that they can receive the ultimate offering.

marycombs14: This is a very interesting book - mostly because the heroine is quite charming and well rounded, and has very real issues to manage in her life. Most of all,. I loved the view inside of the life of a South Asian girl/woman, the emotional self-talk, the customs and preferences, the expectations a...

Animeviewer: It is one of the best stories I've ever read. This story will have you riding a roller coaster of emotions and nearly dying to know what happens next.You will get very attached to the characters and in my case I relate well with some of their very traumatic or emotional experiences, Just Juliet f...

FreakyPoet: I found this story well written and extremely cute. I like how the emotional roller coaster, otherwise know as love, was done here. it was very believable that these two characters would deny, agonize, then come to except their feelings the way that they did. I enjoyed it very much, thank you ...

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...

P. A. Clouden: The world you've created here is powerful, dark and eerily prophetic. It's a poignant look at what a dystopian America can look like and how far off we are from it. I love the social commentary and message you're providing here. Very strong start.I also agree with Caitlin that some more detai...

Subzero Dragon: Wow, this is intense! You cranked up the heat from the word go, and kept me wanting more even when the ending tied everything up so well. I read it all in one sitting, and your strong style doesn't falter one bit throughout. I think I liked this even better than some of the "big" authors' works, ...

Sandra Leigh: Sadly, the book left me wanting more. There are only 5 chapters and I want more! It is easily as good as The White Queen and The Other Boleyn Girl. I cannot wait for this one to be finished.

Colin Milroy: To begin, I don't think that the first review of this story was fair at all. Based on the popularity of this story, I would say the one-star review hasn't done much harm, but I still felt the need to address it. Now I will do my best to be constructive.I liked the concept of this story. I found i...

Angel S. Adames Corraliza: Sensational! As a fan of superheroes, I have to say, you have a real winner of a story so far. I like that you made Allison a Wonder Woman expy, but kept her likable and relate-able in this first chapter. You showed us the Mother while also glancing at the Superhero, which I think is important to...
