Spoiler: MangaHelpers Art Contest Week 07-08 ~ Beloved Ones Poems & Lyrics showSarah
Sarah was her name
I'm so happy ever since she came
To my heart and life,
To my soul and mind
I always say I love her and not feel ashamed
It's painful to see guys who treat her like a game
While I'm here very lame
Because she rejected me,
And our relationship was not the same
as it was yesterday
Avatar Roku say
When Love is Real it Finds a way
But now my love is worthless
No matter what I do she'll find it senselesss
Maybe she is not the one for me,
And we are not meant to be
Someday someone will surely come
And she will give me the Love I needed and seek
and I will also give her some

"I love you too! You idiot!!!"
Spoiler: MangaHelpers Art Contest Week 27-28 ~ Poems & Lyrics - Dream! showTo Have You
It's hard to have a slumber,
Especially when all you can get is a nightmare.
It's hard to fight in the darkness,
When your only weapon is consciousness
It's hard to risk everything on what you see,
And failed to recognize the reality.
I sleep because I want to dream,
Dream about you or the triumph of my favorite team.
Interact to those who passed away,
Or just see unexpected things and play.
I don't care on what they say
To be with you is what I always pray.
And in my dreams it was granted
To be with you my beloved.

Spoiler: MangaHelpers Art Contest Week 08-09 ~ Fables Short Stories! showHilary's Search
A mockingbird named Hilary Chemistry was flying around the Tsukamori Forest when she suddenly noticed an engraving to a tree. She hovered in front of the tree and read what was engraved:
The living age.
Soon they'll reach the final stage.
While I continue to live in this cage.
Hilary who loves reading was moved by the poem. She haven't read a piece this sad in ages. Tears silently fell down from her eyes. She asked a brown bear who's passing by if he knows the one who engraved the poem.
"I think a woodpecker did that." says the Brown Bear.
Hilary decided to search for the author of the poem when she noticed the same poem written in a flower days later after she discovered the poem in the tree. She asked a snail who's slowly crawling to a nearby grass if he knows the one who wrote the poem in the flower.
"It was a grasshopper." says the Snail.
Hilary continued her search and again noticed the same poem written in beach sand days later after she found the same poem written in a flower. A nearby turtle told her that it was written by a crab.
"Did you say that to me because you think I will be asking you about it?" asked Hilary.
"Yes." says the Turtle.
"Did a crab really wrote this poem?" asked Hilary again.
"No." says the Turtle.
"Did you write this poem?" asked Hilary excitedly.
The turtle suddenly transformed into a brown bear, moments later it transformed into a snail both of which are the same brown bear and the same snail that Hilary encountered. Finally it transformed into a blue jay. Hilary was amazed and excited because of the transformation she saw and because she already found the author of the poem.
"I'm Gary Bearserkthrone. I was cursed and became an immortal shape shifter. I realized that living forever is sad so I wrote that poem. How did you figure out that I'm the one who wrote the poem?." asked Gary.
"I'm not sure myself. It's the language of love I guess." Hilary said while blushing.
"Thank you for freeing me off this curse!" Gary suddenly kissed Hilary. Hilary kissed him too.
And they lived happily ever after.
Sometimes we are not aware that we already found the thing or the person that we are searching for.
