tHERE & Here


There is a place where…
…my little brother wants to make an Origami dinosaur but he can’t. And he said: “If only Big Brother was here…” The dinosaur, it’s too easy, really easy, but I am not there to help him.

It is where…

…my grandparents think about me everyday, worrying if I am doing ok. They are really weak; I am not there to take care of them.

In that place…

…my best friend gets struggle in his life. He becomes so depressed and lonely. And I am not there to share with him the pain, or make him feel better.

Still there…

…I had my break-dance class. The teacher, the classmates were so nice and I learned a lot. I am not there to continue it.

And that place is where…

…my love exists. But someone has taken it away, and I am not there to protect it.

I am here, in the
US. I am not there. I am not in Vietnam.
It is that in our lives, we always have to give up something, in order to achieve something else. What I am after is big, is important. But also, I have left so many things behind. Regardless it’s right or wrong, it’s indeed where pains spread out, covering all over the body. “Continue to try, continue to fight…” and to realize clearer where I myself belong to…

Vietnam, the land of caring and love…
