100 word challenge: what world are we living in.

My goal is that my writing rhymes?

Floating on the shell of a turtle swinging through the sea. A girl sitting on your neck with the touch harmonious vibes. Holding up hot air balloons stopping them to rise. Having a whole race of humans lye on your back thinking it’s a round earth. A helicopter shining flickering, and flashing lights standing above you. Standing on a ladder climbing up, finding a window and something new to explore. A painting hanging down left a lone with no colors colliding but just people starring and walk by. As no one knows what world were living in, it’s a mystery.

As i walked up stairs as the birds were singing and flying through sky high. I looked down out of the old oak window my veggies were fresh and my fruits divine.

But i took longer i closed my eyes and if i didn’t i would have realized. I was scooped up by a soaring eagle and it dropped me down on of crumbling log.

100 word challenge:seeing what’s beyond

Everyday standing there looking through the key whole, nothing moved and there was no life. What was beyond, i’d always been the weird kid stuck in books imagining stories and magical beasts. But we were never aloud past the gates. They said there lies danger and a world of darkness. Are  world was controlling and we had no feelings we would never laugh at jokes and be sad if someone leaves or die and we wouldn’t be scared at a monster or ghost. I went and looked and it creaked open as i saw a cloaked figure who was called Giver.

KEY

Facts- green

Understanding- red

Questions-blue

 

Facts: It’s something that we all have in common you don’t have to be famous, it’s we are all from somewhere else and become Australian citizens. Pretty much everyone who was born here is automatically an Australian citizen. But if you’re born in another country you need  an australian citizenship certificate. It makes you an official australian citizen, you have the same rights, responsibilities as any australian would like voting, taxes and living here as long as you want. Every year more than 100thousand people from 200 nations are given this important piece of paper which lets you attend to a special ceremony and you swear an oath to be loyal to australia, and for most citizens it’s something to be proud of. The federal government says it should be an honour that’s only given to people who plan and uphold our country’s laws and values. So the last few years ago they announced that it wants to make some changes to australian citizenship. Malcolm Turnbull, says there’s no more important title in our democracy than australian citizenship. The australian citizenship that institution must respect australian values. Back in 2007 the prime minister John Howard said something similar about potential citizens. So Mr Howard introduced a citizenship test, it’s written in english and it’s in multiple choice, including questions on australian history, culture, values like’ what do we remember on Anzac day’. Every 18-60 year olds applying for citizenship has to take that test and they have to be a permanent resident for at least a year. Now the government decided they want to make the test harder. Under new plan people have to be residents for four years before applying for the test. They have to undergo criminal background checks. They have to prove they can speak english fluently and be asked questions. If they agree the with the question like respecting women, equal rights. The number of people that try again and fail is a lot, and if you keep trying and failing you’ll be limited. On the top of that they have to prove trying to fit in with society like working, dropping kids off and joining in clubs. But some people don’t like the change and it’s not fair they have to wait even longer. And the test doesn’t show what they think about values. They reckon the harder language is limited to some people who are learning.

 

Questions- If you come over if you’ve already got family are you still aloud?

When did australian citizenship become a thing?

Who was the first person to take the test and what country did they come from?

 

Understanding- I know understand that it’s hard to get in. It seems confusing and pressuring, you have to learn a new language and take a test to be a citizen, i also found out that you have a ceremony to celebrate. It proves that people are tested on history, culture and behaviour. And it’s been around for a while and it’s hard to meet new people and fit in.

My goal is to use the prompt in a place other than the start.

As i was running on a full moon night when the stars were twinkling and the moon shining. I looked at the abandoned house it was old and crooked my friends had done every other house on the block. No one had ever seen this house my friends were scared to death they just wanted to run back to their mummies. But i didn’t even knock on the door and it creaked and squeaked open as the slime dripped through, it smelled like rotten fruit and veg mixed with gym socks, it was also ectoplasmic and green i touched it WAIT.
