Despite my mum's warning, I did it
I peeked out of the window of my bus,
A white Swift soed fast, jumping a red light and blaring its horn.
The elderly couple behind me snickered "Aj kal ke log!"
And that got me thinking.
Maybe the driver had a wife who'd gone into labour,
Maybe he had a daughter in the emergency ward.
Hey wait, why just bad news? It could be something positive!
Perhaps the driver of the vehicle had finally gotten a job, she'd been pinning for,a promotion maybe?
I got angry on the couple behind me for being judgemental.
But then I realized how often we all do it,
We peek through windows and observe one-sided stories.
Who knows what their part of the story is?
Who stops to think that we saw things through the dust on our windows?
I vowed to myself to stop judging people. Empathy's the word!!
Except for that monkey-man who threw a wrapper out of his Toyota window!
He needs to be fined. (But then again, don't we all dump stuff out our windows..? Damn!!)
