Info


I had been trapped in a magnetic hole. The place is dark and empty but full of endless murmurs. Any movement I made caused roars. I tried to minimize my mobility to avoid Murmurs' attention, so I gradually integrated myself into this ghostly society with Murmurs. This invisible surrounding gave me faith. It was the Murmurs who gave me hope of life and destruction.

12. Persona

 






I used to think I was the light.
However, I just belong to the light.
The boundaries are infinite.
There are so many unknowns waiting for me to explore.
The light saves me but also increases my fear.
I’m now stuck in a giant cage.

I saw my shadow coming toward me with a smile,
and I start the cycle again.

Is it black, white, void, or what else?




2021


I chased the light to follow the freedom.
The darkness stores my energy, and bursts;
the brightness gives me new birth to life.
However, it is my shadow that always stands by me,
and gives me the most support to aspire forward.
I am who I am because of my shadow.

I saw my shadow coming toward me with a smile,
and we start the cycle again.

Is it black, white, void, or what else?
