"It was raining profusely in New York. People hurried to their jobs/homes or wherever they had to be. A woman sat on the sidewalk of a very busy lane. She had her head down. Her Versace heels were slung casually on her shoulder and her black Prada dress was scrunched up in places and soaking wet and her bag was thrown beside her. Her brown hair was disheveled and clung to her face. A car roared by extremely close to her but she hardly flinched."- Rizma Hamid, Life is never easy
