Eyes don’t lie

The woman was destitute and in a bad state. With her kid fast asleep in her shoulders, she kept staring still at this by-stander, a chirpy woman who was happily chatting with her group, for minutes together. Un-distracted by the bustle from the crowd around, she was lost in her thoughts, without even realizing that she was being photographed. Her despondent eyes reflect a tragic past and a muddy future, and they plead for a good life.
