I felt as if it was all a mistake. Success seemed far away and no one seemed to be on my side. No rewards for my efforts, my hardwork all in vain, I sat crying in pain. Working with a will to earn a living, I sat jobless at my desk only to feel another wave of hopelessness strike me. I could see the talents and qualifications of others getting recognition as my own efforts remained unnoticed. I felt stuck in fear with no one to help me out.
“Blessed you are,” she said as her waters embraced me lovingly, ” why care about tourists appreciating my beauty when there is absolute truth in it. Not everyone has the divine sight to appreciate my beauty.”
I looked at her mystical waters, agreeing to all she said. Beauty at its full glory doesnt need appreciation.
“What I have to offer, no one ever will,” she said as her waters went rushing ahead.
I thought of my concerns over money and felt afraid. No earning and no job, how would I manage? I felt worried to the core.
“Now dont tell me,” she said,” that people can walk by without noticing me. Do you know how many of them come from far off lands to catch a glimpse of me. Thats my beauty you see.”
Her words struck a cord with me as her magical waters renewed my hopes and replenished my faith and now I stand again, to rise.
