Seychelles: Farewell Morning


“I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme,
and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle and end.” – G.Radner

I woke up early today to have my quiet time by the beach. I tried to ignore the sadness of knowing that in a few hours, I’d be back to reality.

I long to live in a place where I can go out alone, in my most comfortable shorts and flip-flops without anyone staring, gawking or judging me by what I wear.

I long to live in a place where I can read and write without fear of expulsion. I am tired of the constant filtering, of looking behind my back and seeing injustice happen right under my nose. I am tired of crying for the many people I see everyday, who I cannot help because I fear for my life.


I wish every day that I could switch my “alert” button off and walk the streets peacefully. I savor these moments when I can let my guard down without fear of harassment or discrimination.

I have reached a point in my life where I genuinely appreciate women’s freedom, a right that I always took for granted.Seychelles-beau-vallon (11)
