The lanes called her menacingly.

Quiet streets with its paved way.

Strangers on either sides whispering in detail,

Ghastly eyes looked at her deliberately.

Goons and innocent children stared in daze,

Women gossiped loud enough to be heard,

Men with their top hats growled a disgusted facial expression,

What was going on in everybody’s mind she wondered?

Pacing her steps through the untrodden ways.

She smiled at the frequent uncalled attention,

She moved slowly with a blissful ignorance,

To a world filled with stories untold.
