#56 – Manman.

Manman, it has been three years since you left. Happy belated 56th birthday if you would still be walking on the face of this earth. You turned a year older in this world two days ago. I do not know of the other one yet. My bad. Your birthday passed and I did not write…

If you brush shoulders with the poor, the needy and the disabled, you’ll want to know how they live their everyday life. Their challenges, shortcomings, ups and downs and whatever they do as they try to make ends meet. Most of our population do not surpass the dollar benchmark. Often, we feel the need to…

A for Aoki.

    “Hold on, Hope is strong.” She said to him. Your wounds they show. Your scars are bleeding. They tell of a struggle within you. She knew you had never felt so low. But hold on. She knows you’ll be strong. Hold on till you hear them come. It’s a dark place you’re in….
