Musings of a Little Girl


People were looking at me, but were they really looking at me, I wondered.

Will they be able to sense my hesitation? Or hear the tremble in my voice?

Will the fight with my inner self show in my eyes?

I guess, they will just brush it off as inexperience or perhaps social awkwardness.

A few were smiling indulgently while others did not give any thought at all and just moved on.

Aah! The answers that I was seeking as I stood waiting with my friends at the busy corner of a street, to meet the strangers in the night.
