She closed her eyes; took a long-breath; chanted a prayer, perhaps to stabilize her trembling soul. But it was of no use. In the high decibel of the noise she had already lost her ability to hear her own words.

But one day I would, no more this life can lure Life is so short; one must go for its cure.
