The waters looked calm, compared to the chaos that erupted in Meera’s mind. It’d be so much easier to leave all the pain behind and just plunge headlong into its infinite depths, she thought to herself, saddened by the hopelessness of her life, where nobody even cared about her existence.
She got up from the bench, intending to put her thoughts into action. Suddenly, she saw a man in front of her trying to commit suicide in the waters.
“STOP!! What are you doing?” Meera yelled, “Don’t you value your life?”
And then it dawned upon her, her own foolish thoughts.
