(A while ago when I discovered one of my first drafts)

I stare at the pages trying my hardest not to cringe at them. These are, after all, my first drafts, this is how all started some time ago. And although I feel nostalgic just to look at them, I can’t help but feel ashamed. Yes, ashamed. You’ll see, in these pages, every word is cramped in the middle of meaningless sentences. They are all forced to fit in the already crowded text to “complete” an “idea.” They just don’t go together. They (the words) want to run away and hide in a faraway land, but my iron-will has trapped them forever in these absurd lines.

They (the words) want to run away and hide in a far away land

I dwell on this thought for a moment, and voices from the past come to burn my psychic with their hollow premonitions.

These pages are the tangible proof of what I fear the most
