Some people are forced into a state of loneliness. Others, perhaps, choose it.
For this young girl, it's a combination of both. As she sits at the bus stop in the middle of the night, she is reminded once again of her constant state of isolation. Surrounded by darkness with just a flicker of light, she wonders how she got here. Did she take a wrong turn? Did someone lead her astray? Or did she make her own series of poor decisions that landed her at this lonely intersection of obscurity?
The truth is, it doesn't matter. What is important is finding a way out - a path that leads to connection, purpose, meaning, and salvation. But for now, all she can do is sit and wait for the next bus to arrive, hoping it will take her somewhere - anywhere - but this desolate spot.
As another hour ticks by, she will wonder if anyone will notice or care enough to ask if she's okay. But somewhere deep inside, she already knows the answer.
