GRIEF





Everyday people passed by the statue of the woman; her body haunched and hands covering the face as though in deep grief.

Nobody knew who built it or placed it, near the sidewalk of a busy road.

Though lot of dirt and pigeon poop had accumulated on top of it, it sat neglected, and over the years had become a landmark of sorts of the neighbourhood.

Only one person knew the story behind it, the statue herself.

When her only child died, shocked, she wept so inconsolably; that kneeled, her hands clasped at her forehead she sat frozen in-time forever.

  2. This is the worst sort of grief anyone could experience. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.
