Hate Released

9 Sep


I am running through a field, a dark cloud is glooming over the hills. I am now sprinting to my destination, before time runs out.

Pandora is clear in my vision now. I can see her in the distance, she slowly moves her hand towards the latch to reveal the hate inside. She hesitates as the box jumps. All of the darkness inside, synchronised in movement. Suddenly a cloud of smoke escapes the box, roaring as it does so narrowly brushing my ear.

Hate released. The cloud of smoke rising in the air, surrounding the field, and the touching the moon. Around now, you can see people starting to fade, smiles beginning to disappear and shouting is heard in the distance. Hate begins to take over.

Hope is what we need to conquer hate forever.

The anger of the gods

9 Sep


I am filled with anger from the Gods, my soul gets tortured, imprisoned from the gods. The ungrateful gods who have used my spirit.

I give the world anger. A natural instinct. I will boil Zeus’s heart with my fiery spirit.

Pandora…ahh. I see her through the light. She is opening the box. I can see her beautiful hair and lovely blue eyes. She looks like she is the daughter of a god. Zeus!!

I will roam and fill his people full of anger and then turn on him.

Suddenly I breathe in the air. It is a lovely day. A lovely day to rain terror.

The sounds of children playing, people laughing, the smell of food coming from a neat row of homes. This is too good. Zeus is ruining the world and he doesn’t even know it. I can see a lady cooking, the smell is opening the world up in front of my eyes. Her beautiful hands, kneeding the soft dough…This is utterly awful and wonderful.

Hope must not fix what I shall do!

The Perfect Being

9 Sep


I am the hate of a selfish man’s word and the eyes of a doubting man, separating everyon without neccessity.

Pandora gripped the furnished wooden lid and levered it open, the bright light piercing the darkness with fury enlightening my eyes.

Suddenly I am sucked out of the box into the world. I feel fresh, I see the world turn dark and people’s souls turn bad.

A dark world.

Zoom out … the world is in shadow, bad taking over as darkness emerges.

Zoom in… the world has turned for the worse, I can see it on faces.

Then it emerges from the shadows, the perfect being…Hope.

Book launch success

2 May


Thanks to all those who came along today – especially those who ordered a book. Your kind words and effort you made to attend was appreciated by the students who had worked so hard to create the book.
It was a proud moment for me to hear the students talking about the angle of the shot in their photography, or the story the photo told. Well done to all – keep this success going!


22 Mar

On Wednesday 27th March at 3.30 in P30, there will be book launch in which Inspire students discuss and present their work from this term. There will be an opportunity to order a copy of the original art work and creative writing in the form of a hard back or soft bound book.
We hope you can join us at this exciting event!
