Since I was young, I was a voracious reader and had a deep love of words and the way they could be used to convey meaning. I hope that my words and my stories would have a positive impact on others.

Every face that we see in a crowd has a story behind it. I am trying my best to listen, tell and share all the stories that I can.

"... I find myself seeing the world through a screen and not my own eyes."
                                                                                                 - Ed Sheeran

I have suffered so many sleepless nights
Tossing and turning,
Like restless waves unable to reach the shore
I turn to almost check my phone, 
But for once I decide to leave it sleeping on my bedside table

The sight of lush green peeking out from my window
Is a sight for sore eyes, 
Tired from staring at glaring phone screens
The birds chirp a song of greeting
Their voices in angelic harmony
I breathe in the fresh air wafting in from outside
Stirring my consciousness into a state of awakening
