Favorite Quote:
“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”
― Haruki Murakami

I made my home out of star dust
swept it clean of all earth
started to mend the places I lost trust
reminded myself of self worth
this is not a places for tears
not a place of dying
not a place for my fears
this is a place of lying
lying only to my self-
a way of escape from reality
not just another book on my shelf,
a different mentality,
my own little wonderland
only when I wake up will it disband
