Confused, I look around like a child lost in a new school; struggling to find my way and yearning deeply for home.

These days, everyone just seems to be in a rush. No one has time to talk to one another, spend time together or understand each other. Where everyone is going and what exactly is the end goal they wish to achieve after a vicious cycle of "being busy" no one knows. Myself included. We have... Continue Reading →
