Parapet

I like standing along the corridor just outside my humble abode, leaning my entire body against that newly white-washed parapet. The night roads shine so ever brightly of red, yellow and green flashes. The cars seem to endlessly go past. And human traffic too, seem to be ceaseless.  Watching and following those tiny ant figures as they go on with ther lives seems comforting. I take comfort that I have the time and privilege to be standing here, doing nothing at all when the world seems so busy on its own. It makes me feel detached from life's buzz for just a single moment. It's like I'm given time off my own drive and to take the backseat instead. In the midst of the daily struggles and scampers, I'm glad for this tiny moment of me.
