Trying to discover my place in this world, leaves the constant thought of trying to figure out how many words are left in my love letter?

I find that MY comfort comes the most through self expression, As I share my stories that fulfill my diary or the stories of others..I pray that I speak, empathize or help someone reading …..My mistakes and road in this journey makes me realize how interconnected we all are. As I embark on my walk of life , I hope my Love letter not only transforms me but transcends a good impression on you along the way……
WRITING…. is my love letter, love song, and lingering sensation of that melody playing to the world..
