It was a just a regular day….
Busy at work, not much to say!
Now the job was done, I was on my way..
Heading home, I had some dues to pay.
Chore over, I quickly resumed my way back…
A lil while later, I felt someone on my track!
I quickened my steps, those steps did too
I panicked and broke into a step staccato!!
I turned into a lane and felt the steps do the same,
Every movie I’d seen, every horror story reared its name…
The steps caught up, I felt a hand on my arm,
Panic-stricken, I turned – ready to strike n harm!
A smile greeted me and an outstretched hand…
“Your purse, Mam” were the musical words I heard!
Tension flowed out, a nervous smile broke out….
Faith in humanity restored, what a turnabout!!
