As I turn on the T.V. and started watching it, I was amazed to my favorite characters as they perform extraordinary stuff. So strong and powerful that even evil couldn’t bring them down.
Sometimes I wanted to be just like them. Wanting to achieve such strength but then, I wondered. Are those characters really happy of what they are doing? Is Goku really loves to defend the earth even though he is not an earthling? Are Kiluwa and Dennis liked the path that they chose? Is Naruto really deserves his strength and destiny?
I realized that being an anime character wasn’t really that simple. I may obtain the strength that I wanted but I may never express the emotions that I felt and neither acts the decisions that I choose. Life will be a very big mistake if that will happen. I imagined myself very sad while my body parts are being attached to the point of his pencil. That I moved the way that my artist wants me to move, express the way that he wants me to express and trap in the so-called “paperworld” while my faulty images flashed over the T.V. screens pretending to be what my artist is giving me.
I am still very thankful that I’m not one of them, that I don’t have their extraordinary skills, that I’m free to express my feelings and free to decide the way that I think what’s best for me. I’m still very thankful that God is my artist and the world is my real world. Who cares if I can’t do extraordinary stuff? At least I can be extraordinary in my own way by doing good, by serving my fellow people and by improving my skills to make my true artist proud of me.
