The chaos has come to rest, As the year comes to an end, With trials and tribulations, And changes like never before.

Walking the middle path, Is never an ideal plan,... Continue Reading →

Unplanned Escape

Sensing the upcoming mayhem, I just stood still, Trying to make sense of them, Couldn't leave the place at will.
