For the first time in my life, I’m truly frightened. I have no idea what’s going to happen in the near future. But this predicament I’ve landed in, is because of my own folly. I’ve been careless. I’ve not been paying attention to the warning signs. Soon, the rest of the world will know. I can hide, but only behind petrified eyes. My eyes speak what I truly feel, and there is no way to conceal that. Every moment spent breathing, my heart thumps a loud beat, threatening to burst out of its cage. I’m trying desperately to contain the terror that’s growing in me, but I can feel it taking over me. I laugh too loud, too fast, too long, so that nobody will see the truth.

Are my sins that grave? This world is indeed very unforgiving.
