    My Glimpse Into Motherhood : Mother’s Day, 2019

    Muse: MY MUM & I ❀ It’s Mother’s day and for the past one week I’ve been wrapping my head around Motherhood – partly because of my discussions with the expecting mothers around me.

    I Want You

    I want to see you flinch when I touch your scars and you tell me each story. I want to hear the secrets you’ve carried for so long that eats you up. I want to see beyond the surface to that pain you’ve successfully hidden. I want to hear the memories of your childhood that draws tears out of your eyes.
