Waterfalling on Purpose

Running away is often scary, and even more if you don't even know where you'll end up or how will you do it. Disappointment haunted me everyday, so I escaped in search of a job to make my family proud, leaving the rest behind.

At the beginning I was gassed and happy, but in the end, I've never felt more alone in my life. Anyway, I could carry on, and today my boat is still sailing in the same direction, avoiding all obstacles I can and keeping up with the rest getting the best advantage of the wind that follows me.
