……and i became empty

I keep staring at the stream. At least, it is free to move; I am not. The vortices and swirling I see on its surface is kind of similar to my troubles though. They remind me of the confusion and disruptions that have made me thus. Despite the vortices, the streams keep moving; I do not…..

I was a full person- full of life, full of happiness and full of hope for the future. Although I did not have much, I still believed that I had much to give.
