Coming here was a tragic event:
Leaving home behind,
I was going to live
A stranger among strangers
For three years of my life.
Now as I walk away,
I hide my tears
From the strangers
Who have become my family.
Leaving, I realise,
Is as much a tragic event
As coming here.

    I know! The bonds we create become so interweaved with our lives ,it is impossible to extract ourselves from it and begin a journey where we will be alone. 😦
