Autumnal

Some changes gladly never change.

Person who feels lonely and has no one, goes on a walk of contemplation

It was a beautiful autumn morning in London. I woke up to the birds chirping outside my window. I yawned and slowly got out of my bed. I looked at my bedside table and found my phone. I looked at the time, it was just 8 o'clock. It was my day off. I went...
