‘Supposed to be’
There were lots of unwanted and unused dreams in her reticule. Some discarded – like the dream to become a doctor – with the progress of time and another new dream; some prohibited – like wearing a tattoo on her shoulder – because her parents had forbidden her to do so.
Those banned dreams, they brought her pain and misery. She felt sad and dejected at those times, when circumstances had stopped her from picking them and enjoying them.
At times, she would sit alone and open her bag of dreams, ruffle through them and would feel bad about disregarding some dreams, but then, she would look around her life and think, ‘this and here. This is supposed to be.’
