by Shalini Samuel
I was crawling deep down the woods
Red, yellow, orange, green fruits smiling
Flowers hanging above banged my head
I was crawling, crawling and crawling
Days passed without a way out.
Nights frightened me with darkness.
Thorns and insects piercing my skin
I started walking, walking and walking.
Rough became the forest terrain,
Bigger wild animals crept out
Threatening environment provoked my tears
I started running, running and running.
Agonized I yelled out irately
My voice echoed back monotonously
Crippled I prayed to God, save me
I was standing, standing and standing.
My legs slowly fell down to the ground
I was lying on the ground amidst dust
Wiping my painful moans an angel held me high
I was flying, flying and flying in broad blue sky
