Friday 3/12/10 - "SAMENESS"




FLASH FICTION FRIDAY 55


"SAMENESS"


She felt invisible, another identical clone in a universe of sameness.

She, the girl next door, the man above, the woman beneath her, all carbon copy people.

She didn't think "their" lives were meaningless, but hers was totally irrelevant.


Then, God softly whispered,
"I knew "YOU" before your birth. You are unique in all eternity."

Flash Fiction Friday 55
is a story written in exactly 55 words.

We are all unique on the inside. A lot of people just tend to hide behind the same kind of surface, though. I loved your 55 and the photo, too. Thanks for sharing. /Jo.

Your post here means a lot to me, and this is my first visit, I'm following you now.
I didn't realize that what I composed today was 55 words, I never tried to write an exact length-ever.
Thanks for visiting my blog!
