Like Father, Like Daughter
Run for your children, for your sisters and brothers.
Leave all your love and your longing behind.
You cant carry it with you if you want to survive.
She describes one day when her mother turned her away and told her to get out. Little Loung and her surviving siblings parted ways to escape the killing fields for a fighting chance. A mother's final act of love and despair. I think, in order to get through life, you have to be able to leave your painful past behind. Longings of what could have been and if only will only sink you further into oblivion. I have learned from expereince that any end can be a new beginning and for Loung, facing the lonely road she was able to run for the ones she loved. The miles slipping futher into the sunset, where we meet and comfort each other with kind words.
