    “It’s moving!”, shouted one of the men.

    The crowd ran over.

    It was a remarkable sight to behold.

    The coming to life of a creature that was once thought to be extinct.

  • DF commented on the post, centered 2 years, 9 months ago

    Taking a deep breath, he centered himself slowly.

    It requires a lot of focus to do this.

    After all the years of training, he has transformed himself into a true master.

    As he takes his step up to the platform, the audience fell silent.

    All eyes are on the Master.

    He takes one big breath and strikes.

    This is the airbag.

    It saves lives.

    It activates upon impact.

    Unfortunately, in some cases, it fails.

    It fails because the force from the outside is too great.

    We have an airbag in our lives.

    Say “Yes” or say “No”?

    Make a choice.

    It was a quiet moonlit night.

    Adam recalls the days when he was in paradise.

    Only he, the lady and the maker.

    “The nights were never this long”, he thought to himself.

    He sighs and move on.

    Choices.

  • DF commented on the post, mermaid 2 years, 10 months ago

    She was sitting on the floor, having her favorite dish of pasta.

    Accompanied by a can of soda, she looked up.

    What caught her eye on the TV brought back memories.

    Tears welled in her eyes.

    She missed her life as a mermaid.

  • DF commented on the post, sweetheart 2 years, 10 months ago

    “Hello there sweetheart!”

    I called her.

    She turned around and smiled.

    We ran towards each other with arms wide open.

    The day has finally arrived.

    I hugged her as tight as possible. Not wanting to let go.

    I missed her badly.

    Then my eyes opened.

    “Hello there!”

    “Hi!” I replied.

    It is nice to be greeted in the mornings.

    I love waking up to the smell of fresh coffee and sunshine.

    Sitting at my couch, I turned to my imaginary friend and smiled.

    Life has been lonely. But lovely.

  • DF commented on the post, switch 2 years, 10 months ago

    It is easy to switch lanes while you are driving.

    So long as you know where you are going.

    So long as you keep your eyes out for traffic on the road.

    So long you indicate in advance where you are going.

    In life, is it that easy to switch too?

    Can we use the same analogy to make life’s decisions?

    Driving can teach us a lot about…[Read more]

  • DF commented on the post, erase 2 years, 10 months ago

    There is no more for me to erase in my memory.

    She’s gone. Gone for good.

    She was all that mattered to me.

    Every morning every night. When I wake up and before I go to bed.

    All I have now is just me.

    I stand in front of this mirror. Staring into the depths of my bare soul.

    Empty.

  • DF commented on the post, erase 2 years, 10 months ago

    We want to erase the memories.

    The memories of hurt, regret and pain.

    Oh, maybe some happiness too.

    Because those who were part of those happy memories are no longer here.

    Oh well, that is how life works.

    If only there is a magical eraser to delete those moments.

  • DF commented on the post, witchcraft 2 years, 10 months ago

    I was the only one in the village who didn’t understand witchcraft.

    I was the outcast. The one who does not partake in anything.

    I was shunned by the elders. Mocked by the young. Left on the streets to fend for myself.

    Someday, they will pay.

    I will be back. And I will put them into the ground.

  • DF commented on the post, revival 2 years, 10 months ago

    “Revival!”, the priest shouted.

    The time has arrived.

    The people cheered. The podium rocked.

    Standing in the middle of the congregation was a guy. He wasn’t smiling. For he had other plans in mind.

    But no one took notice of him.

    As he was invisible to the common eye.

  • DF commented on the post, deal 2 years, 10 months ago

    “Deal!”

    I extended my hand to his.

    It was the chance of a lifetime.

    I signed along the dotted line. Knowing that this decision I’ve made is the ultimate price for my freedom.

    The man walks away into the distant sunset.

    I stand at the crossroads and waved goodbye.

  • DF commented on the post, freeze 2 years, 10 months ago

    Freezing again. Standing here cold, all alone in the white room.

    I look around, there is no one.

    Only me. Facing my own inner demons.

    Where is my angel?

    She can hear me, no?

    Freeze. Where is the sun?

  • DF commented on the post, freeze 2 years, 10 months ago

    “Freeze!”, the officer shouted.

    Kim ignored. He ran as fast as he could. He knew that running was the only way out.

    Seconds later, a gunshot was heard.

    The officer lay on the floor. Dead.

    Kim turned around. It was her.

  • DF commented on the post, space 2 years, 10 months ago

    There is so much space in here. Looking left and right, there is nothing in sight.

    I stand alone in what seems like a room void of time. No nothing in sight.

    I pinch myself, hoping to wake up.

    Unfortunately, nothing happens.

  • DF commented on the post, piano 2 years, 10 months ago

    The piano. I enjoy playing it since I was a kid. It expresses the soul. My happiness, sadness and all that comes in between. I often felt that it was the voice of someone else inside me, never me.
    Music, what a beautiful language.

  • DF commented on the post, lawyer 2 years, 10 months ago

    “He’s a lawyer!”

    “So?”, I said.

    When we were young, our parents wanted us to work in either of these 3 professions: Lawyer, Doctor or…can’t remember.

    Guess I never understood why. Maybe they made big bucks. Or they simply lie for a living.

    Never my cup of tea.
