Used and Abused

I was not part of the crowd but I have no choice but to pass through that crowd so I could get to the entrance of the mall. I didn't understand what the announcer on the stage was saying. All I wanted to do was get past the myriad of people and then take a breath of freedom in a safe place. I was so focused on moving and making my way, going against the crowd. Suddenly, the people began shouting and waving their flags. I had no idea what was happening!

I just wanna get into that door.

Then, altogether, they screamed, "Lusob!!!!...!" "Lusob!!!!...."

Fear crept all over my body. I felt stunned. I can't seem to move but I have to.

If I will stay there and not move, it would look like.... 

A cast of crabs spotted a prey and then trying to pull down on the prey on all sides....

A prey trying to cross a river full of crocodiles....

A human being in the middle of a zombie attack....

But I know I had to move and get going if  I wanna stay alive. So, my two friends and I swarmed into the crowd towards the stairs up into the entrance of the mall.

I was heavily panting as I gasp for air when we entered the mall. A safe place.

I will never ever forget that day.

Rather than anger, I felt pity for those people. They wasted their energy, effort and resources on something that is totally unreasonable and unjustifiable. They were used and abused.

    1. Oo fiel :( Hassle much. Superlate na din akong nakauwi dahil sobrang konti ng mga buses and cabs. On top of that, I lost my glasses pa habang naglalakad from Boni to Guadalupe. Akala ko nalagay ko sa case and kept it on my bag, yun pala, nahulog ko talaga sya :'(
