Janaath Vijayaseelan, Cross Roads: Pick A Path

Life does not always play out according to plan. One way or another every individual is met with cross roads. Cross roads that will either throw you down the drain, or bring you to new heights in life.

Their eyes burdened with sorrow purges bloodshed and conflict
And any hope that fills the world disintegrates with the rotting corpses
