Stranger Among Friends

I was a stranger among friends
A thorn in the way
Never felt more out of place
Than when expected to stay

I was a broken piece of mirror
Couldn’t see my own reflection
The fears that came to haunt me
Hid quickly behind a distraction

I was the supposed happy child
The one that got her way
Or did they just tell themselves that
So they could have their way?

I was an outsider looking in
Seeking a place to belong
Perhaps by searching too hard
Is how things got so wrong

I was an almost melted candle
Extinguishing the light as I floated
They expected me to rebuild myself
But alas;

I only,

was.

Road Trips and Bridges

Last summer, my siblings and I went on a trip to Pakistan’s northern areas (Gilgit, Baltistan).

The natural beauty we spotted took away our breath each time. Since the roads have been constructed by cutting down huge mountains and rocks – most of the rides were bumpy but nevertheless, extremely fun.

We spotted several bridges along the way and keeping this week’s challenge in mind, I decided to share a few of them with you.

On the way to Skardu
En route to Upper Kachura Lake
Built by cutting down a mountain
Shangrila Resort, Skardu
A landslide delayed us for a while

I always prefer road trips over airplane flights; because to me experiencing nature, all kinds of rides and even road troubles – is all part of the adventure.
