Treaty brings be right back to eigth grade when my little private school class took Washington State History. We learned about treaties and everything, but we really just screwed around and did nothing. Best Class Ever.

two sides trying to make a truce or compromise, but typically it ends with one side screwing the other side over. One side always manipulates the other side into giving them what they want through false promises. in the end only one side actually get what they want, and the other is left mad and bitter.

i tried to sign a treaty, months ago. this treaty said, quite plainly, “ms. davis, you will leave this poor boy alone! he doesn’t want you!
i lasted two and a half months.
now, here i am, six months two weeks away from when that treaty was signed. my part of the treaty’s gone up in flames.

A treaty is like the word treat with a y at the end. It means to end a war or solve a problem, reach a solution. When a treaty is made, it is a treat with a y at the end. There shall be peace, but only perceived peace, because real peace does not actually exist.

One document. One little flimsy piece of paper that would stop the war. End everything terrible. Stop the deaths of many. But no one would sign it…

it is time to end this senseless slaughter once and for all. the meeting is sure to erupt into a heated argument but it is our only chance for peace.

We were at war, my neighbor and I. We couldn’t stand each other. Our friends were worried about us because we had been friends for so long and now we were enemies! I didn’t know what to do; we had to have a peace treaty of some sort. I don’t even remember why we were at war, oh wait, it was because she said I “stole her boyfriend” in fifth grade. Wow, how old are we now. Gosh, this is stupid! I give up…I’m done. I’m sorry. You gotta forgive me. We’re not in fifth grade anymore. Time to sign the treaty…

there was a treaty signed in the battle of something i cant remember, it sounds like a treat! whats a treaty? a peace contract? i cant spell!!!!
By Cynthia on 06.05.2012
I didn’t fully agree with the conditions, yet, my pen moved without hesitation. Blood clots and denial. That’s what I signed up for. Irreversible, irresponsible, my hands are bloody.

back in world history, i could never remember if the treaty of versailles was at all fair; it always got mixed up in my other thoughts. you know, the more important ones. like my hair and my weight loss plan.
By Nina URL on 06.05.2012
I watched two soldiers sign the treaty in the name of their gods. “Well, now that we are allies, do you swear to give us your women in exchange for our slaves.”
“Only for the best slaves you have,” he responded, with a strange grunt.
And behind him, his wife stood, with tears flooding her eyes.

I’d like to think if we had a treaty, an accord that promises peace and harmony, that ours would take the form of a song. And with a song in my heart I would pledge to do no harm, that the bees of which I sing would never sting even if I should let them swarm.

An agreement between two parties is called a treaty. There is no guarantee that it will not be revoked or broken.
By Anna on 06.05.2012
the treaty was signed. he had finally done his job. the war was over, the people were happy, and, most importantly, he was happy.
By Jaime Sandberg on 06.05.2012
we have no idea
we have no intuition
our hands move, ink spreads
my name appears over the parchment.
the treaty is broken.
Peace treaty. Wish I could sign one with my mother. She wants me burnt at the stake just so she won’t have to worry about me anymore. Worry, worry, worry. Bad Bad Bad

a cold icecream sunday
a treaty for my sweetie
a piece of my mind
here on this page
like a treaty
By morgan on 06.05.2012
All is fair in love and war
but is it really?
if love were fair I would be in love
if war were fair then it would not exist
and a treaty is just the thing that makes us feel like we have things under control.
By morgan URL on 06.05.2012
halloween i guess, when i see that i think of little kids trick or treating and dressing up. oh and a lot of candy too, all i think about is halloween and orange and black, and darkness – like the night

Treaty. It’s what starts a government perhaps. Ends wars. Mends relations. Gives things back. Perhaps it causes a new slurry of conflicts. Another country. Another war. Who knows what a treaty actually solves.
By Laura on 06.05.2012
Treaties are important to the foundation of any civilization. They are a testament to the goodwill of humanity. A treaty is ultimately a symbol of compromise, a symbol that represents our ability to come to common ground without completely destroying one another.
By Isha on 06.05.2012
an agreement made between two countries or states. often times these are broken, and the promise is torn in half. this was the case in almost every treaty signed between the Native Americans and the US. An incredible number of treaties were signed and broken with very important controversies as thier subjects.
By Jamie on 06.05.2012
sinking sinking, i suppose were all sinking.
thinking we have things under control
like we’ll never lose our minds,
but it’s the same run around, we know we keep doing
but we refuse to see it clearly
How shall we teach our children to listen to one another? Without understanding the other person’s point of view; their beliefs, their assumptions, their wisdom, their experience, their dreams, their hopes and their fears, how can we hope to reach a shared vision of what our world could become.
Is this idealism? Is this a vain attempt at flying in the face of of the absurdity of human existence?
I think not.

When I crossed the line I knew I was in troble The troble I wanted to avoid
But my lover was there acress the line I crossed. When I crossed the line I saw him there. Brown hair lightest brown eyes ever but she was there also waiting for me.
By Madison URL on 06.05.2012
I feel the regret of even shaking your hand. This paper, this idea, this ‘agreement’ as you put it, is not fair. I wish to run from you, but I already signed this treaty that binds me to you irreversibly. I say, “I do” in front of everyone, but secretly I really don’t.
By sarahsmiles URL on 06.05.2012
This treaty is good for everyone and is especially better for each and everyone of the day to see the best part of life is always use in the nice way to go ahead of the time and to work on the best nine ways to have fun and to look at the future to the lazy dog over the bench and over to it.
By Sheldon on 06.05.2012
A treaty or agreement between two parties to come to an understanding, the treaty of versai stopped a huge war I would like to make a treaty with someone to come to a better understanding of what happened in the past and renew an old friendship, but the bridge is burnt to a crisp so I’ve been told many a times and ditched even more.

i love to hate this is what this means and to mean that means to dislike right? i think so. but to treat a treaty is to treat a treat that doesn’t want to be treated as it is. yes? no. no, i don’t know, but really who does. I don’t know you don’t know. when i signed the treaty to have my power taken from me, i didnt read the fine print, and i think that is what people need to be most careful of. dont sign if you don’t know what you’re signing for.
By Jasmine Mendoza URL on 06.05.2012
i dont know much about history except that ehre were trieties in place in wars. which brought about peace.
By MARGARET on 06.05.2012
Treaties often signal an agreement, or and end to a conflict. Some of them are good, others not so much. I didn’t pay much attention in history class so I couldn’t tell you much about the treaties signed by anyone, what they were for, or when they were drafted/signed.
By Adam Summers on 06.05.2012
they told me i could trust them. i knew that they had ripped the fragile piece of paper apart. our peace treaty. what could i say? what could i say when i was surrounded by guns and menacing glares? what could i say, when this was so clearly not a peace treaty?
i nodded dumbly, sighing.
and penned down my name to the Devil’s contract.
By ollie URL on 06.05.2012
She signed her name away. She saw her life and not a page, but somehow she knew there was a way for him to want her. It wasn’t pretty, it wasn’t right, but she couldn’t find which fight to fight. She ran from everything long ago, from that thing that happened to her, that abstract obscurity of which no one would speak. She knew. She knew, somehow, her name was written somewhere, and somehow signing it here would matter more than in the moment. But for the moment, she gave up caring. Worrying, she thought, was a burden of thought. And pain, she knew, was a recurring nightmare that never went away. We dream with our eyes open when we hope. and we hate the world for asking us to tell others what we see. My lamp in not your lamp, my pen is not the same you see. My silver lining outlines tragedies. I know not my own fears, nor my insatiability. Yet I know somehow signing isn’t good for me. I know as all have known–this world is wrong. I belong to myself, yet not at all to me. I remember somewhere I’ve never seen. Yet behind my eyes, I clothe myself in nostalgic memory. Behind the day I see something not of me. Something happens each moment within, and how. How, she thought, can I let him win? If I sell myself to win someone else, did I give away their part of me? And have I stolen them from themselves as well? A relationship takes three. Don’t take hold of my never-ending. Don’t pretend I can last forever, because where’s the fun in lasting? My soul may remember the shell of me, somewhere in the clouds with no lining, but life is nothing without the wonder of how long until we’re dying. So again I regret the dotted line before me. Yet today I say this contract binds me. I fell forward and forgot signing. Now I know not why I’m crying. Just that I signed a blank page, filled to the brim with what I wanted to see.
By Ivy Haycox on 06.05.2012
Sometimes we have to make a treaty with ourselves. Tell ourselves we are going to make goals and figure out how we are going to do it. There are two battling sides to me, to you, to every individual. Sometimes those sides get in an all out war, and the only thing to do is make a treaty to figure it out.
By Teresa on 06.05.2012
I found my hand in his overenthusiastic vice. Without meaning to I flinched. He hardly noticed, like always. He turned around and embraced his supposed “girlfriend”. I wonder how long that would last?
It was easier to watch him hold her, whispers of sweet nothings passing between them, than face the empty road in front of me. I tried to pretend my heart didn’t throb when he placed a kiss on her nose. I brushed off the nicknames they called each other. I pretended to be strong as they walked away from me, leaving me alone in the fading sunset on Washington Way.

LIVE PEACEFULLY COMPROMISE LIVE TOGETHER STAY CONNECTED PIECE OF PAPER AGREEMENT
By MARY on 06.05.2012
Compromise. What will be best for both parties? Can any one thing truly be best?
Why must we compromise? Will a change actually bring about good?
The negotiations for the change will only inevitably hurt us both…
By Eve on 06.05.2012
Something like a deal or an agreement that has been set in place in the past only to be abused, forgotten, abandoned and lied on. One group of people would create a treaty with another to agree on certain terms, sometimes the majority group would take advantage of the minority group and back out of their side of the bargain.
By jamie URL on 06.05.2012
A ‘treaty’ is a document usually signed between multiple parties in agreement to discontinue war or other fighting. It has been shown multiple times in history when countries have resolved ideology differences, whether it be the country as a whole or sectioned groups of said country. This has fixed many of the country
