Red Adidas ShoesBrash, bold
Owns the world
Smarts like a fox,
Eyes like hawks.
Same as the slacks.
And then there are the shoes.
JanuaryA blanket of snow,
plenty of room for angels.
Large rubber boots,
bundles of coats and scarves,
and plenty of hot chocolate.
The problem was
school wasn't cancelled.
Questions With No AnswersPrivate: Where's Bill?
Sergeant: I don't know.
Private: You don't think...?
Private: How can you say that?
Sergeant: This is war, Private. If someone goes missing, they are likely dead.

Sergeant: I would like to know, too.
Private: You mean you don't know why we're out here?!

Sci-Fi PrologueI was told my people come from a planet called Earth. I was told Earth was a wondrous place, never failing to achieve despite being full of issues. It was a place where things like war and peace, life and death, and hate and love all coexisted.
That changed one day. An alien race, known as the Lushats, decided to invade. They wanted to colonize the planet, and they weren't into the idea of sharing with the inhabitants. It must've been crazy to have this happen to you. You were struggling to fight and survive against an alien species that you didn't even know existed just a few hours ago. The Lushats had superior weaponry, and a crazy amount of reinforcements; things looked pretty bleak.
Fortunately for humanity, rescuers came not a moment too soon. An entire military, from alien races that likewise we didn't know existed until that moment, took on the Lushats, and gave them a thorough pasting. This military was from the Galactic Alliance of Planets, which was a congregation of planets
A Realm of PurgatoryOne word can describe this world: grey. There is always a complete overcast in the sky. Everything is in such a neutral color, black, white, or a shade of grey. What color does exist seems to not exist as it gets sucked away by the greyness.
Most of Purgatory is encased in a large city. The buildings are all quite tall. And there are thousands of them. The city has the feeling that it goes on forever, that there is no end, no matter how far you travel.
Purgatory is governed by a group known as The Overseers. The Overseers run Purgatory as a business, dressing the part as well. They decide everything, leaving few if any choices to the people they have placed in Purgatory; their selection process for this has yet to be disclosed. They are also known for changing someone from time to time, altering where they end up upon revival.
Those who have made it here, to this realm of Purgatory, receive a designated time until revival. The common one is two years, though some receive more and other
FoxholeDo you dare to leave?
To venture off
through the upended fields
and broken homes;
where shadows of the lives,
now shattered in pain,
cannot rebuild what was before.
How far can you go?
Stay out of sight
for as long as you can.
fear can create strength,
surviving only because
you are too afraid
of being killed.
You must know,
there is no shame in staying.
Safety provided by the foxhole,
we don't want to die.
So we remain hidden,
in sandbags and soil;
Leave if you must,
call us cowards, then show
what it is to have a lion's heart.
No one will stop you.
Make it to the other side,
and we all survive.
But if you do notů
