Fiction reveals truths that reality obscures.

The lunatic, the lover, and the poet, are of imagination all compact.

Life is every where


Life is a challenge, Life is a gift
Life is a chance, Life is a tragedy
Life is lonely.....Life is pain
Life is full of frustration
Life is a mystery...Life is love
Life is made of hurt

Life is not a bed of roses
Life is a dance for you to dance
Life is every state of mind

Life is a puzzle, solve it
Life is full of unexpected....Life is unexplainable
