Little wonder we stumble in life.

Trifecta – Mantle


I’m living in the mantle.

Before, I lived life on the crust, afraid to dig deeper. I was afraid of what I would find; that deep down, my insides were ugly.

They weren’t.

Prompt from Trifecta.

I'm 25, and I blog to improve my writing; I want to be good enough to be published. I also studied Japanese when I was younger. Luckily, I'll be able to continue those studies along with Creative Writing next year in University.
