But what tugs at my heart-strings
was not the burying of anger in my name
But the desperation
in the little boy with the kindest heart
hid behind the man
who has loyalty
only to his Pride
and a sip of Ego


Snapped in Koh Samui Thailand, 2017


In a world

In a world full of hurt and aggression
We have only learned
How to react through contention
And with all the reasons
Found in one bad interaction
We tend to judge everyone
Through generalisations.
Instead of uplifting others and being kind,
We have devoured our tongues
And chose to stay in our minds.
Whether we disagree or not,
What matters is popular opinion,
Forget individual thought,
And it hurts
This is our reality

Many human beings cannot go a day
Without affecting change
And brutality.

Love Story

Twenty nights ago
I felt you in my dreams
I woke up
Crestfallen, panting

Last night
I felt you in my dreams
I woke up
This time craving for oats and beans
Realise I couldn’t recall the scenes

I told you
Time heals many things

Breathe baby

Don’t stress
Do your best
Forget the rest

Sure I can

Sure I can erase your text, your photos and your dreamcatcher from my bedroom wall
But how can I erase your voice, your scent and the memories last fall?

Snapped in Banjaran Hot Springs, a quick rinse before the soak.

Our Song

I woke up with this song in my head
So I started playing this tune
Tried my best to rhyme with this pen
But all it would scribble was you

I hope this song will light your heart
I hope to help you through the night
I hope to make you
Things will be just fine

Song written by an amazing friend back in 2014. Snapped in Beijing, during winter 2016.


telling tales

He who loves
tell tales to strangers he barely know

She who loves
tales she knew were merely tales

Snapped in Inner Mongolia, 2016 – one of the happiest days of my life.
