The car suddenly came to a halt ;
I looked around ;
My eyes caught his innocent face ,
Doe-eyed little stranger selling magazines.
He came towards me,I turned my face
Don’t know what overpowered me?
The realisation of being blessed with a better life or the harsh reality of the world.
Where one gives up their innocence for survival,
Not much I could do – I cursed myself for being so helpless.
What stopped me?
I still don’t have an answer to that.
So,as the light turned green.
I went on to reach my destination
Along with the imprint of his face
In my mind.
