Woman in the window

The woman in the window
with the child on her back
looked back at me
and stared hard at my soul

my vacant glance back at her
revealed the emptiness that engulfed me
and gave away my hiding place
which is doubt and insecurity

I understand she whispered…………
Thank you, I replied.
