Calm Waters – Flash Fiction Writing Prompt #FridayFotoFiction

He stood still. Calm waters around.

Calm waters even these words sound different to me.’ He thought.

There was a time when kids played in the water. There was a time when people were friends.

Why did it all change?

Where are the lush green spaces, where are the happy faces? All I see is wounded friends, broken limbs, dead bodies floating.

I am the last survivor, such is my luck.

No one left to steer me, no one left to ride me.

Only the calm waters, thought the last surviving boat on the conflicted river at border between two newly formed nations.

    A very touching story. Sometimes I wonder why there is so much agony in life. How would the world be if everyone was devoid of emotions . maybe then all would be one. One country one state one world all together without any harsh feelings for one another.
