Stay at Home, by Noelia Calzado

 

Second Award. Finalist Group 3          

“Sir, you must stay at home”— that policeman yelled at me, I should be empathic, he needed to go home too. I took my stuff and continue walking until an old woman stopped me and say that I was a bad civilian. I remained wandering on the streets, no matter if it was raining or cold because I was used to it. Every time I bumped into someone they just stared at me, judging and whispering things; but I was used to it too. Everyone must be at home right now, I would too if only I had one.
