Maori Pasifika girl sick in bed

Alone in her room with tear filled eyes Anita was lost in thought. Sorrow has been her only companion. Oh! Life has been so unfair to her.

A girl with great dreams concerning the future but now it seemed unrealizable after loosing both parents in an auto crash leaving her crippled. Every passing day she regretted ever surviving the accident. And now she is left to face life and her fears all alone

Abandoned by friends and relatives, she wallowed in self pity. She lacked love and care. There was no money to pay for her treatment. There was none to assist her around the house, she was all alone.
Always messing up herself before reaching the convenience and cries profusely whenever this happens.

Days turned to weeks and weeks to months. She had nothing to eat for days. She felt so weak and exhausted, She was tired of living. She prayed to God day and night to take her life but it seems God wasn’t ready to answer her prayers.

On this fateful day, lying in bed and staring at the ceiling with her pillow soaked with tears, she heard a knock on the door. Too weak to respond she lay down there. Footsteps approached her. Lo and behold her dad very good friend stood before her.

On sighting her, tears began to drop from his eyes. He couldn’t believe what his eyes were seeing. He was finding it hard to believe that this is Anita his favorite girl. The room stunk. He couldn’t put words together to express his shock and sadness. He hadn’t heard of the bad news not until two weeks back. He rushed to her and gave her a hug.

And oh, the hug was so refreshing. Anita felt alive again. It felt like years she experienced this much warmth within. She began to sob uncontrollably.
He said comforting words to her amidst tears and hugs.

He heard her story. It was so pathetic. Left all alone to fend for herself in her depreciating condition. Treated like an animal. Disregarded by friends and family as though she wasn’t human and without feelings. Deprived of love , affection and care. Wallowed in her sorrow alone with no one to share her pain. Left to starve to death, but a savior was sent right on time!

Today, after much therapy Anita is fully back on her feet and she is out putting smiles and colors in the lives of the downtrodden.
