I thought, my life would be like Cinderella’s.
Just like she, I would be swept off my feet by my prince.
I thought I would, just like Cinderella, live in fantasy.
But it didn’t turn out that way at all…
Not after years, not after decades.
And I have come to realize
that what I wanted wasn’t Fantasy but Poetry.
I am Iyza, this is my haiku.
Combined with my photography and the translations
into Tagalog, Chinese, and Punjabi.
This is my first ebook.
