I tried to run away from that noise
Shrill, deafening, ear-splitting noise
People clamoring from all sides
Vehicles rushing on roads
Blocking my mind
I see a beggar sitting on the footpath
Wrinkled face, red eyes
Lean underfed body
Calmness on his face troubling me
Making me envious of his life
What a strange revelation
I lived as a protagonist
But life planned for a different climax
The beggar turned out to be a hero
I wandered around and he just stuck to one goal
I sat beside him
Closed my eyes
And the uproarious world
Ceased to exist.
