Sample of Literature generated over ChatGPT

Prompt: Please generate a Poem on Waiting for Godot

In fields of barren earth we wait 
For Godot, who we hope is fate 
Our lives a constant holding pattern 
As we long for something to happen

We pass the hours in idle chatter 

As we ponder what does or does not matter 

Our existence a question mark 

As we sit in the dark

We wait for a sign, a word, a clue 

But nothing comes, and nothing is new 

We wait for Godot, but he never arrives 

Leaving us with nothing but our own lives

We wonder if we've been forgotten 

If Godot is a lie, a cruel hoax 

But still we wait, with hope unbroken 

For the day when our wait is over, and we can finally take stock

Of what we've gained, and what we've lost 
In this waiting game at any cost 
But until then, we'll sit and stare 
At the empty horizon, and wait for Godot to be there.

Prompt: Generate a poem on Existentialism

Existence, a question deep and true,
A search for meaning, all life must pursue.
A quest for answers, in a world so vast,
A search for purpose, that will forever last.

We wander through life, with no final goal,
No certain destination, no fixed role.
We make our own paths, in this endless game,
And seek our own answers, to life's eternal flame.

We question our being, in this endless quest,
And wonder what it all means, above all the rest.
Is there a purpose, in this mortal coil,
Or are we just a fleeting thought, in a cosmic toil?

Existence is a puzzle, that we must solve,
And find our own purpose, in the grand revolve.
So let us seek, and let us find,
The answers to the questions, that weigh on our mind.

For in this search, we may find our way,
And in this journey, our souls will sway.
And though the answers may be hard to see,
Existence, is a journey, that sets us free.

Prompt: Generate a poem on Vladimir and Estragon

Vladimir and Estragon, two friends so true
Together they wandered, nothing else to do
Through fields of waiting, with nothing in sight
They talked and joked, to pass the long night

They dreamed of Godot, a savior to come
But day after day, he never arrived, just some
They bantered and bickered, but always made up
Their friendship unbreakable, in a world corrupt

They saw the world as a waiting room
Where nothing happens, and nothing can bloom
But in each other's company, they found solace
And the beauty in their friendship, was all they needed to endorse

Vladimir and Estragon, in a world so grim
Their bond unbroken, forever intertwined.

Prompt: Generate a poem on Lucky and Pozzo

Lucky and Pozzo, two men so strange
One strong and silent, the other in range
Of constant chatter, a never-ending flow
Together they trudge, with a heavy load

Pozzo the master, Lucky his slave
Bound by a rope, their fates they pave
A journey through life, with purpose unclear
But onward they go, with no hint of fear

Lucky's mind is blank, but Pozzo's is filled
With thoughts and ideas, yet never stilled
He talks and he talks, but says nothing true
While Lucky just drags, his strength never through

But in this strange duo, a bond is formed
A friendship unlikely, yet ever warm
For though they may seem, two men apart
Together they journey, with a steady heart

So let us all learn, from Lucky and Pozzo
That in life's great journey, there's always a combo
Of two very different, yet perfectly fit
Together they make the story, a perfect script.

Prompt: Generate Micro-fiction on 'Waiting for Godot'

1. Estragon and Vladimir sat on the barren stage, waiting for the arrival of Godot. They passed the time by bickering and reminiscing about their past, but deep down they both knew that Godot would never come. They were trapped in a never-ending cycle of hope and disappointment, but they couldn't bring themselves to leave. 
They couldn't leave because the thought of leaving meant acknowledging that their entire existence was for nothing. So they waited, and waited, for a Godot that would never arrive.

2. Estragon and Vladimir sat on the barren wasteland, waiting for the mysterious Godot. They had been waiting for days, but he never came. As they passed the time, they reflected on the futility of their existence and the purpose of their waiting. They were trapped in a never-ending cycle of hope and disappointment. They couldn't help but wonder, was Godot even real? Or were they just waiting for nothing? They decided to wait a little longer, just in case.

Prompt: Generate micro-fiction on Lucky and Pozzo

Lucky and Pozzo were an odd pair, one a tall and lanky man, the other a short and rotund one. They trudged along the dusty road, Pozzo tugging Lucky along by a rope tied around his neck. They had been traveling together for what felt like an eternity, and had long since run out of things to say to each other. But they were bound by something deeper than words, a sense of dependence and fate that kept them moving forward, step by step. They knew that wherever the road led them, they would go together, for better or for worse.

Prompt: Generate a Sonnet on Albert Camus's Myth of Sisyphus

The weight of life, a boulder on his back,
Sisyphus pushes on, with weary tread.
Eternal labor, with no turning track,
No end in sight, no hope to be ahead.

Yet, in this struggle, he finds a release,
A freedom in the toil, a strange delight.
For in this endless cycle, he finds peace,
In knowing that his fate is out of sight.

So too, we all must bear our own weight,
The struggles that define our mortal days.
But in our labors, we too can find fate,
A purpose in the endless, endless ways.

Thus, let us embrace the myth of Sisyphus,
And find our own meaning in life's endless fuss.

Prompt: Generate a Sonnet on Existentialism

Existence is a puzzle, a mystery untold,
A quest for meaning in a world so cold.
We search for purpose in a life so fleeting,
A reason to be here, a point worth meeting.

We question all that is, and all that's not,
We wonder why we're here, and what our lot.
We struggle with our doubts, our fears, our plight,
And seek to find a way to make things right.

But in our search for answers, we may find,
That life is not a quest with a clear guide.
That meaning is a choice, a state of mind,
And that our purpose is to be defined.

So let us live our lives with open hearts,
And find our own way in these existential parts.

Prompt: Generate a Heroic Couplet on Existentialism

"Existence is our plight, our lonely fight,
To find meaning in a world void of light."

Prompt: Generate a micro-fiction on Myth of Manasa Devi

Mansa Devi, goddess of snakes and wishes, was said to reside in the temple on the top of the mountain. Pilgrims would trek the treacherous path to make offerings and ask for her blessings.

One day, a poor farmer named Hanuman made the journey. He had lost his entire crop to a swarm of locusts and had nothing left to feed his family. Desperate, he prayed to Mansa Devi for a miracle.

As he reached the temple, a strange thing happened. A giant serpent appeared before him and whispered, "I am Mansa Devi. I have heard your prayers. I will grant you one wish, but you must promise to use it wisely."

Hanuman thought for a moment and said, "I wish for enough food to feed my family for a year."

The serpent nodded and disappeared. When Hanuman returned home, he found his fields bursting with bountiful crops. He kept his promise to the goddess, sharing his abundance with the less fortunate.

Word of Hanuman's miracle spread, and soon more and more people made the pilgrimage to the temple, hoping to receive Mansa Devi's blessings. And the goddess, pleased with Hanuman's kindness, continued to grant wishes to those who were pure of heart.
