The sun rose between the high-rises across the river. Yards and factories that once buzzed were now decrepit. Littering the landscape, they offered a glimpse into the hope for the future that was now burnt out.

"You've been handcuffed to the past for too long. You're holding on to things that don't exist anymore and it's dragging you under."

"I'm not sure you're best placed to be handing out advice on what the fuck I should be doing with my life. How long have you lived here? I don't see you clutching your passport."

"Maybe not, but I wasted years keeping up with the mundane things that others expected me to do. Let them go. Don't let this place take your life away too."

- Excerpt from 'Handcuffed'
