APH: Harsh lessonsWhen dreams no longer offer rest and escape from a harsh world, they become nightmares, terrible reminders of a past we had thought that we left behind.
"And so the great and powerful Centurion finally defeated the great dragon and conquered the city. Women worshipped and men envied him, but for himself he only wanted the best, the king's beautiful daughter. And so began a new golden age in that once accursed city." Rome flashed a wide smile and rolled up the scroll. "Wasn't that a fantastic story? Battles, fights, monsters, wars and women!"
"Tell me more stories, Grandpa Rome!" Chibitalia asked. He could barely sit, so exciting the story had been.
"Come now, it's time for my favourite grandchild to go to bed!" Rome answered and stroked Chibitalia's hair. He covered the young child with a blanket and smiled. "Tomorrow is a new day and we can make art together again, like today. And you can watch as I win Germania in an arm wrestle!"
Chibitalia tried to protest, but already he fe
Dear Diary-FinlandJanuary 27
Today Denmark, Sweden, Iceland and I went over to Norway's place to watch the northern lights. It was wonderful! Denmark and Iceland made a bet to see who could eat the most Frikadeller. Ironically, Iceland one. And then he passed out for a few minutes from being too full. Too bad he couldn't eat the rest of our dinner. Sweden even pulled a prank on Norway and pushed him into the river. Everyone laughed, including Norway. I didn't know Sweden had a sense of humor! He looked like he was really enjoying himself, a rare sight!
Man, it felt great to be together with them! We never really get together that often to hang out as brothers, so today was really a great day to meet up! Everyone seemed really happy to be together. I whish we could get together like this more often
Just another normal day. I went to go see if Iceland wanted to hang out with Sweden and I, but we knocked like five times on his door and he wouldn'
Mommy Please stop cryingMommy please stop crying!
Mommy where did that bruise come from
It looks black and blue and painful.
Mommy why are you wearing those glasses
Is it to cover up what daddy did?
Daddy why did you hurt mommy?
Daddy don't lie I saw you hurt mommy
When I was hiding under the stairs
I saw you make her cry.
Daddy why are you mean?
Daddy what is in that bottle?
I don't like when you are drinking
It makes you mean
It makes you hurt mommy
Mommy please stop crying!
Mommy, daddy please stop fighting
I can't stand to listen.
Do you fight because of me?
daddy don't hurt mommy I can leave
just please stop fighting please.
Daddy what did you do?
Mommy stopped crying
But now you are being taken away by men in blue.
Is it true?
Is mommy with the angels?
I don't understand you hurt mommy
But mommy isn't crying.
Men in blue
Can you bring mommy back
Please don't take daddy away
Please don't leave me alone.
Please tell me why?
Why did mommy leave me?
Why are you taking daddy away?
Hath No FearGiving yourself completely up to fear is kinda like falling in love: You can't pin point exactly when it started and by the time you realize that you are surrounded by that sensation it's already game over. Just like the image of the person you are in love with starts creeping out from every unexpected corner, fear never leaves your side when you give it a welcome stay. After a restless sleep, it starts beating anxiously in your heart the moment you wake up in the morning and commands all your thoughts and actions throughout the day. It is nothing short of a prison, except you are the only inmate and the warden never takes a break. Ever.
I do not exactly remember when I let fear occupy my being but I remember the exact moment when I realized I was ruled by it. It was late in the afternoon, everybody was out there 'getting busy living' and I had locked myself inside my bed half awake, not particularly finding any valid reason to get out of it. Then I was awakened from a nightmare by my
