The Caravan- by Malkeet Kaur

The Caravan


While life lurked in the rooms with military darkness and silence-  punctual and precise,

Amidst an eve of euphoric din out,

She kept matching new steps

As years trailed behind,

Finding herself walking alone

Through yet another door;


Until one day she found her steps

Sure and firm, marching with the time.


Until she found

She was her own caravan

Drifting alone through newer doors

As the old ones shut forever behind.
