It’s 7 am. The mute walls, closed windows with curtains drawn echoing haunting silence continue to taunt me as always. Darkness engulfs me, prodding me about my past failures. Surprisingly today, I set out for a walk to observe the world around me in silence.

I see a little boy struggling to ride his bike without the training wheels. He falls. He rides for a few moments. He falls again. But he rides. Getting better every time.

The old lady from D block ambles with her walking stick and sits on the park bench. I was told her days were numbered. She eagerly meets her friends and discusses interesting recipes and other sundries.

And then, as I walk a little further, I see a tiny bud peeking from the Plumeria treeโ€“ the tree that was partially uprooted during a cyclone last year. It showed no signs of life for a long time but now it seems to breathe.

So much to absorb in a short walkโ€ฆ

After a while I’m back home. Mustering courage I open the curtains to let in the bright rays of sunlight. To hope, I finally open the doors of my heart.
