She was scrounging for something
I thought I should ask
But the answer she gave me
Shocked my heart
She said she was looking for her dignity
Which had been snatched by some men
She said she was looking for herself
For she had lost it at that very moment
Suddenly I realised my cheeks were wet
Her face gave chills to my spine
But she didn't tense or even cry
As she had learnt to say "I am Fine"
