Death..! Death is so final, whereas Life..!, Life is full of endless possibilities.

She unlocked the main door with heavy heart, with small and tedious steps came inside and switched on the lights, with a sigh she took of her coat and hanged it near the door and kept keys on table. Slowly and unenthusiastically she made her way to kitchen and poured herself a glass of chilled water.

I snap out of my thoughts, my surrounding becoming clearer and so my mind. “I will do what makes me happy” society can wait, my dreams are more important than their opinion and feelings in my journey to success.
