The Journey #Poem

By Disha Khemchandani:

Treading softly on the shaky path,
Holding on to a bag of hope,
Undeterred, she looks around
With expectant eyes.

Carrying a tray of sufficient dreams,
Passing it around,
Looking at the indifferent and tired faces
A blank look crosses her face.

She does catch the eye of an onlooker,
Tiny splashes of enthusiasm come on her resilient face,
The onlooker gives her a curious look,
But it is just a look.

Counting her blessings,
She sits after a hard day of work,
Eyes wandering everywhere,
As the announcement rings through the compartment,
She treads softly on the still path.
