He was given the box as a young boy, but never really knew what to do with it, nor what it meant. Now, on the day that his father died, he held the box tightly in his hands. The warm yellow wood seemed to calm him. He opened it and searched through the contents. His eyes filled with tears, as the contents of the box became clear to him.

I was given the greatest gift this morning. I realized that she visited me in my dreams again. I am not sure of the message, but just the thought of having seen and heard her in my dreams soothes my heart. Some days I wish I would never wake up.

She’s Given me the strength to continue on,
she’s my best friend.
But she’s more like a sister.
She’s given me the hope things will get better
She’s given me the love that I never had.
She’s given a friendship that means more to me than anything else on this earth.
And I’ve given to her the love she’s deserves.

I have given you everything, dear. Everything and more. You have torn my heart from my chest a thousand times over, and yet I would crawl around and pick up the tattered shreds, and shove them back into your broken hands. I guess it’s safe to say I love you. And hate you. But mostly, it’s just love.

It was a given, she thought, that he was going to bother her; but she couldn’t help feeling annoyed at the smug expression already crossing his face.
“Destrelle,” he commented, “you truly are too easy to annoy.”

I was given a gift when I was placed into his care. He was the only one I could trust, the only one who truly cared about me. I don’t know how I understood it then, when I was just a bratty little child, but this man, my legal guardian, he cared about me. and despite all of my instincts to never trust a man, I knew i could trust him. He gave me the gift of trust, but he gave me something more, the gift of love.

I walked past the same corner that I first saw getting off the plane. IT looked abandoned and sad, even the flimsy scaffolding was drooping with the weight of rain water and orange leaves. This time, I noticed something that my eyes had skimmed before: a lump. Not just any lump but a person sized lump in the shadows. I hadn’t seen any hobos in New Mexico and very few through this trip so I was slightly startled. What should I do? So I thought, if I was reading a book and the main character saw this poor guy and walked past, I would probably start cursing at the book! What an inconsiderate move, nameless-character! How cruel of you! It’s just a little different when it really happens to you but I didn’t want to disappoint my invisible audience so, before the morning crowd arrived, I turned straight around and walked into Boots. Not two minutes later, I came out with two triangular sandwiches, boxed up like tiny little plastic gifts. The lump remained motionless so I tucked the sandwiches into a plastic bag and nestled them near by. I didn’t immediately feel a sense of gratitude or gain a new outlook on life or anything from this decision but nonetheless, it was nice. It felt nice.

People only expect what is given to them. What happened to the days of earning what we get? No. Now it’s hand outs. Bail outs. Extended unemployment. Link cards. I don’t understand what happend to work ethics.

She’s be given everything she could ever ask for, and yet it still adds up to a few grains of sand on a infinite beach. She’s been given the sun, and yet it’s still just a speck of stardust in borderless galaxies. The moon is hers to keep, a chunk of rock, whirling among countless other chunks of rock.

Today was the best day of my life. And it was just a normal day, nothing special. But, I met her. That will be the best gift ever given.

given, given is when a zebra is born with stripes. given is something simple right? given is something people should know, what about the ones who dont? is this cheesy writing? thats given. i mean it is.
By A. Boyd on 07.02.2011
something is given to others usually with love but not always and sometimes with an unkind heart. When you have something given to you it is a gift so treasure it. It is not always a given that the gift that is given has been given with the best intentions but it is nevertheless a gift so it’s up to you how you choose to take it. My thoughts are that a gift is a gift and if its given then its a given that it is for me.. Given that we have thought about what we are giving as a gift then having something given to you is always a compliment since it means that you have been thought about and occupied someones thoughts. They have not only given you the gift but the knowledge that they have given you some time and space in their thoughts. Time and space that could have been given to something or someone else but was given to you. Wow what a compliment. I am glad that I have been given many gifts and have given many gifts to others by giving them my thoughts and my gifts which actually amount to the same thing.

heavenly father that sees to my every need…he loves me now and always

I was given… this. I have no idea what the heck it is for but because HE gave it to me I’ll keep it. It’s completely bare of writing, no labels to tell me, not even a “made in china” melded into it’s pale plastic.
By Emma URL on 07.02.2011
It is a given that I love you
that’s no true
i am a bad person for saying so….
it is a given that i am me and no one else
and i dont want to be or try to be anyone else but me
in this time i’m given solitude to rest by heavy mind.

It’s something that I get to hold close, and never have to let go. It’s mine, but it’s not mine alone. I didn’t get this myself, it was something I received. Do I deserve it? I’m not always sure, but it is mine, and that is enough for me. It is mine. It has become mine. It will stay mine.

I could have given anything for her to live a little longer. What is everything? I don’t know. Anything, I guess. Even years off my own life. She would have made my sister happier.
By Grisel URL on 07.02.2011
I was given everything I have.
When will I begin to give to others?
How do I reach a point where I can?
Sounds so easy.
It’s not about a birthday present to my friend.
It’s about giving up my life or my sanity for the good of someone else, because I have taken away both of those from numerous people.

In a small paper package, with a little red bow, was the girl’s newest surprise. She would never believe the silver bell would one day save her life.

I was given the opportunity to change. it took me time to accept but it wasn’t like it was something I picked up, it was something GIVEN. So out of obligation I had to take it.Life is like that you see. Sometimes we must be given life to fix life. But that’s OK. Thats why there’s more than one of us.

“How do I solve for X, if Y isn’t given?” I asked my teacher, frustration with the math class, high school, general education system and “The Man” slowly growing within me. One math problem had sent me over the edge. “Just don’t,” she said, sensing my anger, and a possible riot on her hands. We ended the class playing hangman, using taxpayer’s dollars and time to keep us all from losing it.

It wasn’t just given to me,
like a gift.
It was earned over time,
through kind comments
and small smiles:
it’s a relationship slowly taking wing

The word I have been given is given, is this some form of irony? I guess not, I suppose its more simply something which happened randomly. I dont think I have given this as much thought as I should have. It appears to be rather lackluster.
By JustinPoole URL on 07.02.2011
Have you given everything that you have to give? Have you laid it all on the line? If you truly believe that you are right than you must be willing to die. I know that when the time comes you will make us proud. You have the face of a martyr. Oh yes my dear, you will be remembered well.
If given the chance, I would take it. I would grab it like the most precious jewel. I would hide it away and keep it safe. Guard it with my heart. Break all the rules to contain it. If given the chance, I would love you with all of my heart.
By Brittany on 07.02.2011
Of all the opportunities i have been given, i still don’t look at my life as blessed. I can only see the things that have been taken and the times where i failed. I feel shame at this selfish outlook. I think of those less fortunate and cringe at my thoughts.

Given the testimony on yesterday’s fulfillment of the long awaited prophecy, one could conclude all men involved in such a fallacy is a blasphemy to this religion in question. Thus, we have created a law that distinguishes all factions, parties and cults the ability to induce the concept of prophecy unto the citizens of our state.

Taken, asked of you. Something that is no longer yours. A gift you may or not be happy to bestow upon someone else. Something you do or do not ask for. Often not a choice, a name, a birthday a place you grew up, a gift things just given to you

Considering all he had given, he had received so little in return. He hadn’t gone looking for any favors, of course. Though, he had thought for sure he would have gained at least some small trinket for his troubles.
By Raymond Masters URL on 07.02.2011
It’s been given to me to make a change in someone else’s life. Someone I didn’t know but who felt like I should have. HE was sitting on a bench, today, and contact juggling, with a glass ball and a hat between his paint splattered boots, singing to himself. I walked by, and then stopped, and went back to sit by him, to look at him, to wonder at him.
And then when he had given over the stories he holds, the stories of his life, how he had been raised by a Nazi, gone homeless by choice, followed bands and avoided drugs, helped people when he could and called the gypsies his own people – a wanderer – then I gave over what I could, and heard the words shouted behind me as I left him.
But I’m not sure what they meant.

we were given thousands of dollars. we didn’t know where it came from, or who sent it. it was just given to us. as we looked at it, we tried to decide what to do with it. but then we realized that to whom much is given, much will be required. so we gave it to people who needed it more than we did.
By Joe on 07.02.2011
i have been given so many things in my life, it’s unbelievable. i feel so incredibly blessed, and wish there was a way for me to show how grateful i am for all of these amaizng things. My family and my friends, are the most precious things that i have ever been given. They truly are the best support system i could ever ask for.
