We have our winner.

The call? Be inspired by this piece by Zenos Frudakis called: Freedom and write your freedom story or poem.

The entry that captured the feel, the message, the one that showed the sculpture’s intent and inspiration, for me, was this one.

Stuart Nager has a gift.

You are free. To live. To learn. To love. Go...go!

..and i will be free

Freedom, and the taste of it is so sweet.

Elephteria, released, ran out into the quad and raised her arms and head to the heavens. Five years of interment, awake the entire time. The madness that she thought would never end, ended. She was ready to take flight, ask for forgiveness, ask for acceptance.

Xaris, released, tried to warn Laurel, to hold her wild rush. His fear for her was brimming over. He, too, was aware the whole time, and what he heard as people sneered by made him dread this day. There was no forgiveness, in his heart, to ask for. Xaris knew he would never be accepted.

Laurel, released, was hesitant, and despaired in what she witnessed. Five years of hatred for Elephteria, five years of tearing herself apart knowing Xaris was only thinking of her. She was twisting in despair, and she wondered if he would ever forgive her, if she would ever accept herself as she was.

Raffaele, released, refused to be, for he had not forgiven himself in these long five years. He felt the four of them should stay imprisoned, in that immobile state until all who knew them were long gone. There was a need for atonement, for them all, and he hit the button under his palm that encased him again. He did not wish to have to deal with any of them ever again. He accepted that.

News Ding 2049/15/11:  Freedom, and the taste of it is so sweet.

The October Malcontents were realeased  at 0700, back into the land we love. Fiver years ago, the collective tried to break down our beloved system, saying NO to the rules that keep us all safe. Shouting slogans against our beloved establishment, the rousing of ire caused their downfall. Here’s hoping they have learned their lessons.

Stuart is on The Twitter as well.

Thank you, Stuart for submitting your work for this submission call! It’s seriously brilliant.

I truly appreciate everyone who submitted and I enjoyed reading every one of them. It was a blessing.

The entry’s were sent to my Facebook and to the blog as well as to my email-so I was right in my assumptions that writers, as artists, tend to break away from the walls of order-for the most part and that I love.

In fact, I will be sharing more works from this call soon-because I can.

#WriteOn my fellow creators. Aspire no more

and be blessed.
