Discover Your Potential

She was walking through the familiar street gaining stares from everyone she passed. Her clothes were torn, her hair was knotted, and her sandals were hanging by a single strand. Her knees were scrapped and bleeding. Her eyes – bloodshot. The smell exuding from her was foul. Not one of her “admirers” (aka her former “neighbors”) stopped to ask her of her condition.
