Recently, the states of West Bengal and Odissa in India were hit by cyclone amphan causing devastating damage…my grandmas and relatives still live in one of the cities affected and had no electricity for 72 hours…this along with the pandemic has left the place shattered…although my relatives are safe many were not so fortunate…i pray for all affected and hope they get the help needed during this difficult time.
In these uncertain times, have courage to rise above fear that threatens to engulf the world more than the actual threat. Have courage, for we are all fighting a battle every day and every day that we see the sun we have won.

You don’t always feel the butterflies Butterflies You initially felt felt when falling in love In love with a dream A dream that you chased You chased across the world world that took away the butterflies Butterflies that kept you awake Awake with anxiety and this need This need that consumed you You this fragile being who depended on validation validation from what what spoke to your mind mind that seemed to soar and be paralyzed at the same time Time that brought epiphany Epiphany that it was okay to let go of the butterflies and still be passionate Passionate about these dreams that break you Break You in pieces to make you realize the power of resilience Resilience that goes beyond the butterflies Butterflies that you let go for you build your own wings to fly Fly across the world with the strength of your dream.
