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.
