Dear Father, I remember the day you told me that I will be attending high school. I was beyond excited because I’ve never been to a proper school before due to our constant moving around.

Dear artist of mine, I never thought that one day I’d be writing this. That one day I’d be too much of a coward to face you, too much of a coward that I’d write you; and I’m sure that you’d paint me; my long lost artist. I recall how you drew me between a […]
