Through the dusty expanse of glass windows,
I looked blaring traffic lights in the eye.
Contemplated all my life’s ifs, buts and sos,
struggled between lies and honesty, virtue and vice.
Found that everything I wanted,
was ten times the size of what I had now.
Realized that under all that valour I was a frightened child.
Felt like I had to bridge the gaps but HOW.
A blessed droplet of water trickled from above,
trickled unto the bottom of the window pane.
It wiped clear a long thin wavy line of dust.
And there was clarity at last, for a single moment, once again.
