Darkness and beyond
Neha stood at the entrance of the gloomy tunnel that seemed like an abyss into the unknown, her palms sweating and her legs trembling.
“Can I conquer my fear of the dark once and for all? Or will I have to give up my dream.” she wondered.
Her body was ablaze with the desire to fulfill her dreams but her mind waged a battle of its own.
Her eyes soon adjusted to the dimness and she realized that her rabid fear of the dark had been unfounded.
As she raced past the finish line snapping the red ribbon she was glad she took the plunge and fought with the fear that was deeply rooted in her psyche.
