Past-Stars (Part One)

He is always worrying. Not about himself, but, about others. If you ask him the last time he had rest or time for himself, he’ll say, he can’t remember. You’ll find that weird because for you, all Sundays are set for rest and fun. You rest on Sundays, call people...

The Only Truth

The only truth is…you can not always be the healer because at some point you’ll also need some of that healing… We all have different battles to fight…we all have different voids that we yearn to fill…at some point we look for fulfillment and peace in all the wrong places...

Some of us were gonna be Lawyers

Not because we knew what lawyers did. But because the name lawyer sounds….huge. We were raised to think big, and make big decisions. Unfortunately life happened. Who knew writing was a career?
