                                          It happened when I traveled to Fantasia,
                                              Riding in an old ship called Galactica,
                                            There’s a super storm name Nympha,
                                           That’s why our ship turned into pieces,
                                         That’s the beginning of my endless stories.

                                         It’s my 10 years alone in a far away island,
                                          Surrounded by the most beautiful sands,
                                     My way of living is so simple and a little bit hard,
                                  But I overcome it and I survived as God is my guard.

                                         One day while I’m having my hearty lunch,
                                            I heard a loud sound from a distance,
                                             It’s a helicopter with some soldiers,
                                             They are here!! At last my rescuers!

                                           Before I leave the unforgettable place,
                                   I would take with me my precious old necklace,
                                  An old paper with my ten years of hand writings,
                                  And a white single shell with a beautiful carvings

                                             During my stay in a mysterious world,
                                           Memorable things make me go on living,
                                  For they are my strength and it really my treasured,
                                     I will cherish all the experiences and sufferings,
                        Today I feel happiness in my heart and the pain finally cured.

                                                            October 30, 2013
