Paving A New Road.

It’s hard to keep paving a new road towards your dreams. You may make decisions you’re usually not comfortable with. You may have to battle your fears daily and take leaps of faith.

She Tried

As the burden became heavier she tried to quit her passion . She tried to lay that pen down for good. She tried to throw her copybooks away and burn her papers. Maybe the disappointment would lessen if she vowed to stop writing.But even if she quit a strong voice from within her would demand…
