really liked it

Where did she go with all those books and paper? Why did she march so far away? They will not know I have gone away to come back. For the ones I left behind. For the ones who cannot out.

Beautiful vignettes that are reminiscent of our wanting to make it while trying hard not to forget who we are, and where we came from.

Butterflies too are few and so are flowers and most things that are beautiful. Still, we take what we can get and make the best of it."
