100 Words: Latecomers.

Facing up to your mistakes is a hard lesson. But making others pay for your inefficiencies is a cruelty.

Another body should not move because you could not find your place in time. Raging against a rock the tide can’t displace is futile- it will maintain it’s seat no matter how you rail with the waves.

The waterfall of your rage must cease once it hits the human river and flow according to the path set by circumstance. Progress with patience and, like rivulets that run into little pools, accept your place and learn, before returning to the wider stream.


Drabbles are 100-word pieces of creative writing- usually based in fan-fiction, but I prefer original themes.

The theme ‘Latecomers’ suggested by a colleague.
