    Reflections

    It was a morning with light drizzle. Another turn on the road of life that I believed will take me to a high destination. Yes, it was start of a new journey. Driving on the highway, I observed the locals and the surroundings passing by. The word "Variety" would be right for folks...

    I Tried. I Really Did. Saved Lives For 10 Years Now Being Spit Out Like Rotten Fish.
