Weekly Photo Challenge

A Face in the Crowd

It’s amazing how a single photo taken in a single moment, can capture so many different things.

Even when a crowd gathers at a single location you will notice how no two persons will ever be doing the exact same thing. And that is what makes life so wonderfully unpredictable (at most times!).

Captured below at Karachi’s Hawkes bay beach, you see Karachiites from all sorts of backgrounds putting aside their differences and rivalries; enjoying an ordinary Sunday morning along the seashore.

How many different activities can you spot?

Stranger Among Friends

I was a stranger among friends
A thorn in the way
Never felt more out of place
Than when expected to stay

I was a broken piece of mirror
Couldn’t see my own reflection
The fears that came to haunt me
Hid quickly behind a distraction

I was the supposed happy child
The one that got her way
Or did they just tell themselves that
So they could have their way?

I was an outsider looking in
Seeking a place to belong
Perhaps by searching too hard
Is how things got so wrong

I was an almost melted candle
Extinguishing the light as I floated
They expected me to rebuild myself
But alas;

I only,

was.
