The Tongue Chains
Khaled Bassyouny , author
SUBSTANTIAL AMBITIONS. HEFTY CHAINS. A QUANTUM LEAP. Should you not listen to your inner voice? Khaled was a 6-year-old boy the first time he was jailed. After a vivid dream, a cataclysm kick-started his life journey. As soon as he set sail on his life-journey, he was persecuted by Taurus, his once best friend who forever became his worst enemy. Defying all the odds to fight his way out through a series of life changing trials, he metamorphosed, fell into a loop of grief, and stayed on the verge of suicide for years. But in his mind, he already died long ago. As the love of his life knocked on doors, he tried hard to stand out. But stutterers don’t get a second chance to make a first impression, do they? The escape wasn’t easy. He was rebirthed when he finally welcomed the light at the end of the tunnel, and faith entered his heart once again. Finally, he was unchained, and wrote the letter of his life: a letter to the stutter. This is how he overcame all of this. This is how his tongue stuttered, when deep down inside, he knew that his soul doesn’t.
