In a span of two decades, a time frame which many (including myself), might consider fairly inadequate as a requisite for forming an insightful and somewhat accurate perspective about life, I have ascertained a solitary feature about the life I wish to lead, namely: a meaningful one. The intricacies of this solitary feature, though presentlyContinue reading “Searching For Meaning”
A merry and untroubled time from the past, Was something that I unwittingly assumed would last. I was unaware of how the dreary grey clouds in the sky, Were taking away my sunshine without even letting me say goodbye. Until all that was left behind of me, Was just a silhouette of who I usedContinue reading “changing”
