Stare through my eyes. You, an outcast, lost and alone. Nobody knows you, you don’t belong. A so-called new life, starting again with new cultures and societies. To them you never existed, you just appeared one day. What is it like to be the sheep travelling beside a pack of coyotes? Anxiety approaches upon recycled memories of the past life.
