8 Things I Learnt From The Past:

7. Death shall come when it is ready, not when you want it to. No matter how sick you think you are, one should never think that Death is waiting in the near future.

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
