A hope that rises every morning that one day he will do something big for them. He was not fully known about the serious disease his beloved mama had gone through which has crashed his original personality. He was too young to endure all of what was happening around him but his mind was still not plodded to throw him into a deep sea of sorrows. At that time music became his best friend which soothes his disturbed emotion.
