The Journey

Written by Batool Fatima

On your journey home
Don’t forget to breathe
And when you’re on your own
Don’t forget to see
Remember to slow down
Look at the grass blades too
Look how the flowers dance
Remember how the dandelions flew
On your journey home
Don’t forget the rivers
The ones that were smooth
The ones that brought shivers
The journey to comfort
Is a long one I feel
But every step you take
don’t forget to steal
How the leaves changed colors
How the marigolds bloomed
How the rains took over
Soon after no signs of monsoons
This voyage may also be a tiring one my friend
But witness you will
the fantastical in the end
So pick up all that you can
And feel to your most
For the drama lies in the travel
The end is just a host
