There he lies upon the hospital bed.
Machines working to keep him alive.
He can't hear, or speak, or is even aware of his surroundings.
Swollen face, puffy lips, bandaged head.
Why didn't he wear a helmet? Why was he drinking?
Stupidity at its finest. A string of many impulsive decisions.
It was said parents were supposed to provide good examples for their children.
They were supposed to know everything.
Yet they are only human, just as everyone else.
I can feel the tears streaming down my cheeks: hot and sticky.
I want to say so many things, but only one sentence comes to mind:
“I'm proud you're my father”.
But I wonder if I meant it?

There they stand in the school halls, random faces that pass you by.
Who are they? Are they nice? Are they mean?
Those thoughts of uncertainty ache at you.
A pretty girl with a grin shines amidst a group of others.
Your heart skips and you take a step.
Then you stop as those thoughts return.
Slowly you back away into your classroom, putting her out of your mind.
Time passes and you see her but you cannot make a move.
It's been three years and she has a boyfriend now.
Five years they are married.
Part of you thinks that could have been you, yet that connection was not to be.
Dangerous HeartDangerous HeartDangerous Heart by Noratcat
The blood pumps through the tubes, working overtime as the body forged ahead.
Legs treading through dangerous terrain, shouts of dismay and frantic impatience.
You can feel it thumping upon your ribcage, threatening to break through.
Your brain can only provide so much, but the heart is the true organ of life.
Without it, the brain is just a useless gray lump.
Your breath grows short as your heart's speed increases.
Sweat seeping through pores, drenching yourself as you cook.
Your heart beckons you to stop, its speed moving faster than it wants.
As the heart works into overtime, your lungs began to strain.
Like a computer, you are overheating and can feel the shut down.
But then your heart leaps when you see it, a glimmer of hope that tells you “it's almost over”.
Though when you arrive, what you see makes your heart drop: “Closed: Opening Hours 9:00 AM-6:00 PM”
In your heart, you feel you should have left half an hour ago.
Yosozyu Sentai Ryuushiger prototype/previewLight and Dark: Two sides to a coin. Everything is torn between these extremes. Even nature. One side wishes to preserve, while the other to dominate. We humans are caught in the middle. Torn between the two natures, we live upon this planet doing what we can to make it a better place, or others spoiling the beauty of nature. Nature has taken notice and humanity must now prove it's worth to this planet.Yosozyu Sentai Ryuushiger prototype/preview by Noratcat
Tokyo was busy as usual. People moved and hustled about the city streets. So many stories were taking place. Some were trying to meet up with some friends, others to an important arrangement, while others simply just enjoying the day. The latter was more associated with the park, which is where our story takes place. Unlike the city streets, this small part of remaining natural beauty was left undisturbed, even as the many humans moved about at a less strenuous pace. One such group were children.
“Hey guys wait up!” One young boy called. Short black hair hidden undern
