The worst part of it is the feeling of loneliness. For these past almost five years I have been on a journey with my loved ones and friends around me. It’s as though we have been through the wars together, holding tight to one another. Now, with my time running short, I am being prised away from those I love and set on another path where they cannot follow me. I am on my own.
