โ€œYes, youโ€™re right. I never lived before,โ€™ she cried. โ€˜I never lived. Frightened of everything all my life. Frightened of death. Why did I ever give a fuck? I want my life back! Give me back my life, you bastards. You bastards filled me with fear and I never lived a single moment of my life. I want my life back, you bastardsโ€ฆโ€ Excerpt From
The Freedom Artist
