The sky’s painted with beautiful, delicate strokes of red, orange, and yellow. It’s so bright and yet, you can’t seem to turn away. You’re so sad about the sun setting, ending the day with a last flourish, a day you won’t be able to repeat, slipping out of your hands by the second with a wave of nostalgia.
But do not worry, my friend, as the sun will rise again, brighter than ever tomorrow, when the day starts all over again, giving another blank page in your life to fill.

Repeating over and over, but is somehow completely different from yesterday…


The author's comments:

Sunsets are so beautiful as they hold so deep meanings…I’m not sure if anyone’s going to ever read this piece that means so much to me but if you do, please admire the sunset for me today…

Wow, I didn't know that a story can be so meaningful in just 101 words! So sorry you missed the due date, I did that once as well on accident, but it's okay! At least you still got it published for others to read! Great story by the way ;)

No. Theyre used to be an edit button, but it didn't work right so Teen Ink removed it. Anyway, this story is great! I'm sorry you submitted it at the wrong time!

Just realized that this was off the due date for the contest. Sorry everyone! Is there any way to change this title into just "Sunsets"? I have no idea because I'm kind of new to this platform....Sorry once again!
