Postcards from Memories # 14

A young girl in her early teens is sitting across me in the train today. Nervously she is clutching her exam paper in her sweaty hands. As she stares outside the window something about her strikes me. Her eyes seem so empty. No joy no fear no pain no dreams no excitement. No emotion at all. She stares into nothingness waiting for her destination to come. Her lips curled into a permanent straight pose leaving no doubts about her state of mind. I wonder what horrific face of life has she witnessed at such a tender age that has taken away her zeal for life. I hope she heals soon and her heart dreams of beautiful tomorrows with infinite possibilities. *Amen*
