October 16, 2018 No Comments

Sometimes I feel like running away, to a place where no one stays, in a world devoid of pains, in a land where happiness begins…   So far away from reality, that I can dream free without any penalty, unbound,unleashed with free will, to escape to new life like a baby sill… I see this place […]
