16/04/2012 Just you and the tracks. An ideal thinking spot.The high grass covers you. Nobody is watching.Sit on those tracks. There are no angry drivers to shout at you. No pedastrians to push you out of the way or stomp on your toes. No train to complete your suicide attempt. So go ahead, indulge in those inner thoughts. Picture: Oupa Mokoena
