Plethora Of Thoughts

All my fears, inhibitions, insecurities- do they make a difference to anybody, or they are just adjectives to people sharing the same earth. For all I know, pretentious behavior could be seen here and there but in reality, there is none whosoever who could realise the pain one is going …
