“When the time has come, every leaf turns to face the sun!

It doesn’t know if it has to, but because the call has reached it:
Not knowing what to expect, it will, move slightly, twist patiently
and try to embrace whatever is coming!

It might be too strong, it might be too weak,
it also might just be perfect!”
― Akilnathan Logeswaran
