Alone… By SHA-1
Loneliness is the time when all sorts of thoughts confuse one, taking them to introspection as she was wondering while walking alone whether she has lived her life in a daze or else why there is so much loneliness, emptiness sometimes in her heart, in spite of being surrounded by relatives, friends, and neighbors, there was something missing in her life.
Suddenly she noticed a Fortune Teller sitting with his caged parrot, waiting for the people to come and know their fate.
Whenever some fortune seeker came, he opened the door, a parrot came out, selected a card, gave it to him, and went inside the cage.
She noticed it never tried to fly away, what’s more, it closed it if the owner forgot to close it.
Was it for food, security or has it become habituated to living alone, loving the captivity, or simply lazy like her who never tried to venture beyond her comfort zone?
