All my adventures down the rabbit hole...
This is a story that begins.|
And it's a story that might end.
You see a rabbit and you see a hole...
But you don't know where it goes.
Whether it is blue or red.
The matrix is where it said.
So jump in that hole.
So you'll know how this mystery ends.
I had once remembered, now I forgot.
Everything my memory got.
I was just a little kid,
I didn't know what I did.
I broke a heart and rib,
I'll never understand why I live.
Is it tomorrow or today?
I don't deserve to stay.
I've lied and now it's time.
I once should've said,

|The guy that had asked me for a prize for finding my eye has taken me to a different area, in the woods. In this area, there were tree stumps that were being sat by other creatures. He told me to stand on the tallest stump, so I looked for the tallest stump and stood on it.
"This young miss is going to give us a gift as a thank you for finding her eye. Is there anything you'd like to say to her?" The guy spoke to the creatures sitting on the stumps.
"She is very kind and humble." Said a birdlike creature.
"What is this gift you speak of?" Said a froglike creature.
"More like where is this gift?" Said a ducklike creature.
"Calm down my friends, we'll give it to you shortly." The guy said.
The guy turned to me and asked, "Where is the prize?"
I didn't have anything, so I desperately looked in my pocket and found a coin purse I have forgotten about. In this coin purse, they were a few coins and a dollar bill. Most of the coins were golden pennies.
I gave him the coin purse and said, "Here, these are the most luxurious coins you'll ever find. They're very rare and can give you a wealthy life."
"A wealthy life you say?" He asked as his eyes lit up.
Amongst the coins, he found a golden apple that belonged to my sister, Abilene. I knew giving them the apple was a terrible deed, but it was either this or my life.
I'm sorry Abelle, I had no choice.
"This coin purse contains the most spontaneous treasures. Thank you, miss, for your gorgeous gift." The guy said as he shared the gift among the creatures.
"Yes, it's the most beautiful gift I've ever seen!" Said the birdlike creature.
Before I could hear another response, I ran away crying as I knew what I just did. I hope I never have to face a similar encounter.

I once lost an eye.
It rolled out of sight.
I was very sad it was gone,
Looking for it took very long.
The eye was my everything,
And it suddenly went missing.
I looked through the bushes and the leaves,
But there wasn't something I could see.
I almost gave up looking for my eye,
But then I bumped into a guy.
He said, "Excuse me miss, is this your eye?"
I smiled and said, "Yes, Thank you, it is mine!"
I was grateful to see my eye, but then he asked, "Where is my Prize?"
I asked, "What do you mean, where is my prize?"
He said, "A prize for finding your eye!"

Nothing Gold Can Stay ~ Robert Frost.
Nothing gold can stay.
Not even for another day.
The leaf that woke up on its head,
Told the hour to turn back instead.
However, when the leaf looked at the clock,
He didn't realize he was mocked.
His golden strands have gone astray.
Everybody laughed, "Hooray!"
Tis' the tale of a golden leaf,
and how we could've cooked it in our beef.
This is another line we say,
How nothing gold can stay.

|Everything in this world has to do with strange.
I fell in a hole without caring about what could happen.
I entered a place where I never knew people could stand on their heads.
I drank a potion, ate a cake, and went through a door that ended up in the middle of nowhere.
And now... I'm talking about the most strange events.
I don't know what could be more strange.
Eating a life-size berry or entering a world of mysteries?
Should I take the blue pill or the red pill?
I think one of the strangest things I've done on this journey was fall into a dream within a dream.
It made me curious that wonderland was more than what it seemed...

|The Hallway is an intriguing mystery.
It's a place with never-ending doors that are the same color but can be in different shapes.
You never know what's behind any door until you take the risk and go in.
You never know whether it could be your last choice.
When I entered The Hallway, there were two doors in front of me before I looked around. One was a tiny door, and one was larger than a normal door. In between the doors, there was a potion and a golden key on a wooden stool table. I took the key and then drank the potion. I grew taller, Maybe too tall. I thought it was going to make me smaller. I guess there was a switch? Being so tall was a workout. There was no space for a size me. However, with pain and a few pinches, I grabbed the teeny cake and ate it whole. The cake made me tiny, which created an awkward view as everything that used to be small grew. I still had the key in hand. I'm surprised it didn't slip through my fingers when I was tall. I ran to the small door, which was now huge, and unlocked it. Behind the door, there was a forest, but it was different than how I imagined. It reminded me of a tropical forest. It wasn't completely dark, but it wasn't light either, and it was a peaceful place with a wooden cabin. Inside the cabin, there were 3 rooms; a bedroom/living room, a kitchen, and a bathroom. The first room I entered was the bedroom/living room. I jumped onto the bed and fell asleep. When I woke up the next morning, I was no longer on a bed or in a cabin. I wasn't even in the tropical forest. I woke up in a dark woodsy place in the middle of nowhere. There were raspberry bushes nearby, and the raspberries were the size of my legs. I looked at them and smelled them to make sure they weren't poisonous or unripe before eating, and I took a bite. I stained my clothes, but it was the best food I had since I fell into a hole. I stuffed myself until' I became full. I think I fell asleep again..?

|The Golden Key is the most fascinating item I possessed.
It was just sitting on its table, doing its best.
I noticed the gold lingering on its mind.
I tried my best, figuring out what I can find.
The Golden Key is more than just a key.
Just think of the possibilities.
The very next lock could be your heart.
Just let the key do its part.
If your soul is a thing that gets trapped.
Let the key be your map.
For, this key can unlock anything.
Just be mindful of what you bring.

|As I went down the hole, I saw a mysterious place. In this place, people were walking with their heads down instead of their feet.
I was curious how they did it. Thinking about it made me more curious and curious. How exactly did curiosity kill the cat?
The cat did say, "How funny it'll seem to come out among the people that walk with their heads downwards! The antipathies, I think."
I don't think I'll ever understand. Are we in New Zealand or Australia? Is it antipathies or antipodes?
I'm sorry. I had to ask.
All I'll ever know is I will never know how to walk on my head.
Am I looking through the wrong perspective, or do I need to wake up?
Everything around this place also stands upside down.
The buildings, the doors, the benches, the chairs. I'm really starting to get scared.
The weirdest thing is that everything they do is upside down. From the way they talk to the way they feel.
I can't believe I haven't gone mad.
Although, I'm starting to feel tingly.
I fell into another hole.
How many holes do I gotta fall in til' I'm going to get there?

|It all started when I followed a rabbit and fell down a hole...
I never expected to fall down a hole. I never thought I'd participate in falling through this hole. However, I'm doing it. Every chapter I write is a new adventure to seek. It is my destiny to fulfill those adventures as they may become my last. I don't know what's in this hole, but I hope I'll understand how the story goes...
I expect Wonderland to be a world full of mysteries, mishaps, and imagination. I hope that when I write, I become a piece of that world and live in it.
I really don't hope to gain anything except the fun experience from these adventures. I'm participating in going to Wonderland because I love the Wonderland movies, especially the realistic ones. I also liked the game. Wonderland is a fascinating world that has inspired some of my dreams.
Sometimes, I imagine that going down the rabbit hole will be going to a dark world. I imagine most nightmares would come and go.
I really hope I don't bust my head going down this hole...
