I Set You Free

A thousand moments have I lived
All glistening moments
Those moments led me to you

They prepared me for you
Your eyes that are ready to travel
Your feet adventure ready

You take my hands in yours
Your soft palm against my calloused palm
You didn't care, you just lead the way

You take me on a different kind of journey
A journey rocky, but we find a way to peace
Your beauty always  shines

I can't believe I helped create you
That you are part of me
On rare days I see myself in you

I have to set you free,
You have earned your wings
I don't want to set you free

I do it anyway...

What do you currently do as a job? Currently a freelancer for social media services/ Media Strategist at TMB As a child what did you want to be when you grew up? LOL I wanted to be so many things I lost count! I was smart so I thought medicine will be the way, then I could speak and didn’t mind reading so I thought Law was the way, I was good at literature and my lecturer thought I will make a fine journalist. At some point I wanted to study glass technology. Truth is I have never had one lasting passion Did primary school and secondary school shape your ideas about your dream job?

So it shaped what a dream job was supposed to be, prestigious, recognized with a lot of money At what point in time did you change your min…

What do you currently do as a job? Technical Sales Lead {however my true scope of work covers everything from accounting to procurement, admin, logistics etc.} As a child what did you want to be when you grew up? Scientist with my white lab coat, mixing chemicals in beakers and conical flasks. {Dexter inspired}. Subsequently I became obsessed with Petroleum Engineering and its exploration. Did primary school and secondary school shape your ideas about your dream job? Not so much. Books from my father library shaped my idea about a dream job, it is still surprising why lawyer dad had petroleum books. At what point in time did you change your mind about that dream job? Last year in Secondary School. Had a talk with my dad and he pointing out the over specialization of a first degree in Petroleum engineering, so I decided on chemical engineering and I walked into a new world. {Dexter meets real life=chemical engineering} Why did you study what you studied in university? If you have a do over …

What do you currently do as a job? I currently work as an external auditor by day, day dreamer and writer somehow interspersed in-between and of course all round weirdo by and large.
As a child what did you want to be when you grew up?
I always knew I wanted to work in the corporate world, always had this image of the well put together city girl, high flying executive extraordinaire who can afford the luxuries of the finest labels, nice apartment, understand the art form that is independence and all be it living her truth. Did primary school and secondary school shape your ideas about your dream job?
*laughs inaudibly* If we were to go by the books I read in high school, I would be in the C.I.A. At what point in time did you change your mind about that dream job? I don’t think I ever had a dream job per se, I always loved how strong, confident and stylish the women in the financial world looked so that has always been my go to. However I discovered my love for writing in my 2nd year in the u…
