coming out from the shadows….

I learnt to hide at an early age. And since then, hiding became normal…even comfortable. I hid in clothes one size too big because I hated my body. I hid my sadness behind a happy face, only allowing people to see what I wanted them to see. My screams reverberated in my chest for years,…

Pockets of Joy
