"Dear Other Side" by Jayden Taylor
Updated: Apr 28, 2022
Well, the grass isn't green on this side. Today, I go the radio to work. I spent hour tuning the frequencies until I got a station. The scattered sound of a woman's voice repeating "come in, anyone, please come in." I said, "I'm here." She stated that she was apart of one of the last platoons sent out to relief the upper-western part of America. Her and her other combatants set up camp outside of Seattle, hoping to take any survivors across the border. That means I'll be home sooner than you think, hopefully. Portland is ran by heartless savages and getting out here won't be easy, but I got the truck working, hopefully I can sneak out by 2 AM. I miss y'all, I really do. Tell your mother I found coffee beans she likes, and please keep your little brother under your wing. I know he's a lot to deal with, but just until I get there, okay?
Yours 'till the cat meows,
Jayden Taylor, sophomore (class of 2024), says of his writing “I’m really into funny writings, realistic but fictional writing, and really whatever comes to my head. My writings might be peaceful, serious or funny. I don’t plan to take writing seriously it’s just something overtime that I’ve picked up on and enjoy.”
