Stopping for breathe, his pair of eyes curiously observed the world of faces around him, each holding to their umbrella for dear life when it’s only water!
“Mum, why are you afraid of water?”

Money is paper, simply!
People are faces, simply!
Friends are those who share their candy with you and hug you when you’re down, simply!
Enemies are those who try to put you down, simply!
Parents are the only ones who will love you unconditionally, simply!
Love is longed for but when it arrives it is sometimes not recognised, simply!
Inner voice can save you or break you, simply!
You can love yourself and enjoy the company or hate yourself and be unable to leave the relationship, simply!
You’re beautiful if you believe it and show it, simply!
You cannot ask God for a refund or an exchange for the body, personality or looks you’ve got, simply!
Life is what you make of it, simply!
People are like a movie, they are screened to teach you something if you are paying attention, simply!
They can say what they want but if you don’t believe in yourself nothing will matter, simply!
Everyone longs for something, simply!
And rain is just water, simply!
