Bringing Me Back Home: World Poetry Day with Viking

It’s 8:10 pm. Tuesday the 21st of March 2017. Exhaustion seared through every fibre of my body. I was sat at the top of my stairs phone in my hand surveying the damage all around me.

Courage. An Original Short Story.

Have heart, have faith, have courage. I just kept walking. I had walked for miles, hours, time had since lost any meaning. Blue skies changed.
