silent-scream

Sprout is now up and running!

Sprout Magazine is an online journal focused on broadcasting young social commentary through creative media and expression. A product from my own desire to share my politically aware thoughts to the world, I formed this magazine in order to make my dream a reality and also provide an opportunity for teenagers like me to have a space to share their words. 

Being sixteen and an aspiring poet, I found myself screaming silently in short stanzas unbeknownst to the world. I wished to be heard in both my views of society and around me and in my voice as an artist. 

So knowing that there was an active social justice community on here, I decided to create a journal to share my vision with any young mind who wishes to do so. 

If you’re interested, please join me by checking out our blog here. I have raked the soil for you to grow; it’s now your turn to root yourself and sprout.

this day of silence thing doesnt happen here in brazil but from what im getting people stay silent for a whole day to represent how we are silenced?? but why would lgbt+ ppl do it as a symbolic thing when it’s already our reality? make it a day when all the allies are silent and we all scream. we scream all day

That last post you made is so on point. I think it's perfectly natural to be annoyed by OOC-ness, it's probably my biggest pet peeve and the reason why it took me so long to publish anything to be honest. I'm terrified of OOC-ness as much as I despise it when it's overplayed/done seriously.

It’s why I barely publish anything and when I do a lot of the time it’s anonymously. There’s just a lot of fantastic characters, and they deserve to be done justice! Sometimes I see things that make me want to scream “HAVE YOU NO DEPTH?” but I refrain because fandom drama just isn’t worth it and everyone is super nice. I just sit silently screaming in the corner before resigning myself to seeing the same oversimplifications of my favorite character over and over again.
My true passion in life is being judgmental.

“climb the mountain
raptures coming
fly away out of Hell

God is coming
save the children

find a simple soul
give me a silent scream
throw out your broken dreams
come here and be with me

God is coming
save the children
fly away

give me a silent scream
throw out your broken dreams
come here and be with me

That’s all
Crucify me”
