Not many wonder about why they are the way they are. or all the knots or all the complications or the eaten aggression nor the love of their life . coz we all think that we are who we are and we are selfish . we humans like ourselves above all and sometimes we misconsider the others' perspectives. some of us might learn from their mistakes, some of us are odd. but all of us suffered and ached. but not all of us bled and paid.
Just after the first sucker punch we will never be the same again.
