    They told me that decisions are for people who can think maturely. I told them they were wrong.

    Just because, now, I have to choose between six years of martial arts and one year of formal discourse doesn’t […]

    Maybe it IS wrong to think of these things from time to time, but honestly…it’s part of being human.

    -I believe I can fly~-

    “Stop thinking!”

    I had to stay focused. The lights were switched off. My teacher sat in the far end of the stage.

    She told me that I had to stop thinking while playing the piano.

    She didn’t know how […]

    I guess this was how she treated my ideas. I’d give it to her, let it drift somewhere and let it spread and let it run away and lose control to make it creative. She just stepped into it and watched as everything […]

  • Alexis Lim commented on the post, pins 7 years, 6 months ago

    These were the only reminders I had left of where I used to be, and maybe these always told me to never let go too soon.

    Maybe holding on for so long, or letting go too soon made me forget how to feel.

  • Alexis Lim commented on the post, branches 7 years, 6 months ago

    It was all about control. And I lost it all when the leaves started falling without me saying so. Maybe I just wanted people to make solutions from these disadvantages to make everything better, even for simple trees like me.

  • Alexis Lim commented on the post, flip 7 years, 6 months ago

    She taught me to treat each book carefully, because everything around me, apparently, was a work of art. I held her novel carefully and browsed over its content. I accidentally tore a page from all the excitement […]

  • Alexis Lim commented on the post, blaze 7 years, 6 months ago

    It was the same sun I ran under three years ago. The very field that I used to love. The very mound I never wanted to leave.

    I never knew that you would be the one to bring me down.

  • Alexis Lim commented on the post, splash 7 years, 6 months ago

    I hate swimming, honestly. At least if my feet can’t reach the floor. :)

  • Alexis Lim commented on the post, capture 7 years, 6 months ago

    There are just some things in life that one shouldn’t forget,
    Because when we hold on to what matters, we grow,
    And when we grow, we define ourselves.
    Pictures and words on pins and nametags
    Depict our dreams […]

  • Alexis Lim commented on the post, catcher 7 years, 6 months ago

    Falling stars can’t choose where to land
    People try to chase them as they crash towards the ground
    But maybe I’m too naive to understand
    That when things like these happen
    The only place you’re headed [for] is down.

  • Alexis Lim commented on the post, drifting 7 years, 6 months ago

    I love my sister very much. She helps me with so many things and she always makes it a point to never make me feel so bad about myself. I don’t know, honestly. Lately, I’ve been feeling that she’s not doing […]

  • Alexis Lim commented on the post, temper 7 years, 6 months ago

    I get frustrated very often, quite frankly. People are just very narrow-minded nowadays and aim for so little. Sometimes, I wish society wasn’t as…bad as this.

    But then again, I’m not the best person alive. […]

  • Alexis Lim commented on the post, fixed 7 years, 6 months ago

    I had to cry to fix myself. I had been scared for the past two months to do something that I probably loved the most. I wanted to hide from everyone because I had been crying too often. Then my friend approached […]

  • Alexis Lim commented on the post, ratings 7 years, 6 months ago

    I checked out the bulletin board to see if my photos made it to the Top 10.

    Mine was the 5th best photo in the entire campus.

    I wanted to be a photographer someday, and strangely, I trusted my school to […]

  • Alexis Lim commented on the post, pageant 7 years, 6 months ago

    She looked from afar at her daughter on stage. The girl was shifting too often. Her hands were trembling on her side.

    The mom just shook her head, disappointed. She taught her daughter everything she had to. […]

    The girl walked up to her mom with the crown in her hands. Her mom, though, just looked at her and walked away. She mom wasn’t satisfied with second place.
