A Story – Poem by Komal Kahlon

Once upon a time, there lived a girl

No bread, no tea. But my heart says,
Where there are wills,

Up and down my spine.
I want to be off and away
To my treasure, mine.
With the ship i sway
Into the unknown.

With adventures and…”
The poor girl caught
In the desert of time’s sand
Has for ages fought…
