    I remember reading this beautiful piece when I was younger and it made quite an impression. Its essence is still engraved in my mind. It's just incredible how much emotion can be conveyed through such simplicity. There's such an intriguing mix of tranquility and defiance here. Just love the way it makes me contemplate life and spirituality. Pure beauty in words!
