The Casa

Finding home
I’m finding a home
Without odour
Without nuisance
Finding somewhere
To be my home
A few pairs of worn shoes
A whole backpack of melancholy
I hug myself
So cold, so warm
I dry my tears
Helpless then back to fearless
Finding home
Searching the world
Somewhere I’m cherished
Somewhere I’m the priority
Finding a place
To be my home
Volumes of heart-to-heart journals
An overwhelming number of snapshots
I searched the world
For years on my own
I’m my home
So I thought

The Adjustment

Love is letting go
Simply agree, no is a no
Love is giving up control
What we had goes on yes I know

The Evil Inside

It’s the evil inside
The little demon
Talking and talking and talking
Until it breaks your silence
It’s this little guy
His harder and harder pushes
Trying and trying and trying
Until it breaks you into pieces

The Characters

Some are journeys
Some are destinations
People appear
People leave
Always at the right time
Always for good reasons
They might be different
They all bring lessons

The Interview with KC II

KC: What are your thoughts on love and relationship?

MW: We think when outside of any romantic relationship. When nearing or in a romantic relationship, we feel.

When outside of a relationship, I think too much. When nearing or in one, I think too, but usually at the end it’s my feelings and instincts that win over reasoning.

KC: What’s life to you? Afterlife? Soul? Next life?

MW: Life is now. Life is problems, difficulties, challenges, obstacles, uncertainties. Live it. Put your heart in it.
Afterlife? Soul? No one knows. We are not even quite sure about this one.

KC: What’s your worth in this world?

MW: How I influence people around me, and the people around them, and so on to the crowd, to the community, to the world, to the next generation, and the generation after that, on and on. Not everyone is capable in doing this of course. But let’s all try our best and do our bit. Bit by bit, step by step, let’s make it a better place.

KC: What’s the most important thing for every individual?

MW: Observe, think, learn, improve.

The Interview with KC

KC: What’s your favourite movie?

MW: A great movie makes you feel and think for hours or even days. A breathtaking movie, like my favorite ones, leaves the deepest thoughts in your head about life, for life.

Le Temps Qui Reste, Time to Leave in English, a French movie in 2015 doesn’t tell the audience a story, it asks them questions; it triggers thoughts; it leaves marks. Why do we exist? How do we exist? Why do we live? How do we live? What is life? Does life go on?

What makes us us?

The Triangle, an English movie in 2009 with relatively less shocking themes. Also about existence and purpose, it shows the vain quest for too many wishes with limited time and strength.

KC: Well said.
Time To Leave will be my movie to watch tonight.

The Triangle is great, that ending.

For me, movies are all about expressing ideas. Ideas that may change the world, or just simply change someone’s thought on how should we live.

My favourite one is The Truman’s Show. Trapped or not is just in the blink of an eye. Choices are there for those who dare. But I am not ready yet.

Another is Man from Earth, which always connects me to some Wesley’s crazily mind blowing ideas of origin of humans. What’s life? What’s soul? What’s it like afterlife? Maybe you are actually one of them?

Finally is Life is Beautiful, an Italian movie about time at WW2. A touching movie. Sometimes, we must laugh no matter what happen, right?

For movie series, Lord of the Ring, and Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy.

MW: The Truman’s Show is indeed a masterpiece. Man from Earth will be the next movie on my to watch list.
Fun fact: The Dark Knight, the second of the trilogy, is the only movie I’ve watched twice in theatre.

The Orchid Girl

I stroll along her face with my thumb
I feel
I touch
Her eyes
So delicate
Her face
Never fades
I can no longer hear her voice
I close the door
I clear my mind
No, all I can hear is still
The drizzling rain
Her hair does not move a bit
But I fear she’d feel chilly in such wind
I hold her close
Next to my heart
I lower my head
And again try to have some sleep

The Dimension Beyond

Step into
Sink deep
A sea of choices
An ocean of scenes
Everything makes sense now
A contentment never before felt
Pages, personalities
Endeavours, wishes
All those years
Every corner
All those ideas
Every catch
And let thy feet
Millenniums hence
Be set in midst of knowledge

The Clock

Step back
To look further
Pause for a while
To think faster
There are no rules
Just truths
There are no limits
Keep your pursues
