    Choices Made

    Had a drink up with an old friend, we enjoyed ourselves, and our talk about memory lane. Both of us 21 years of age, but it seemed we aged beyond our years. We shared our laughs and thoughts on our actions in the past. The misunderstood children we once were. Who thought that the...

    We Never Use Our Choices Correctly

    Life gives you opportunities.

    It is your choice what you do with them. I don't like to say "I told you so", but the truth is: I told you so. I don't understand when someone can clearly see the difference between two choices, the good one and the bad one, and still knowing that, they go for the bad one. When...

    I never thought that i would be trapped with

    two people. I never thought of being squished cos of the fact that I gotta choose which one. I did not want to hurt any one, but it's part of it. I hope I would not regret the choice I made.
