The Dream

Updated on October 21, 2015

At 19, I had a dream. There’s two-way road.

Mysterious. Silent. Other with deafening sounds.

I turned my torch on. Observing things around.

Where am I? It’s midnight. I’m nowhere to be found.

I checked my phone. And it’s empty.

I’m perplexed and have no money.

Observing. Listening. And I was thinking.

I hiked, hiked and I hiked

I saw one tree with tiny board.

Welcome to Jungle! Animals were horrible.

Lion. He looked at me intently. He wanted to bite.

Hairy. Sharp shining teeth. He’s coming.

I shivered with fears. But I didn’t run.

Snow was falling. And I carry on walking.

Tiger's behind me. I was nervous.

But I didn’t run. I was sick.

I was hiking like forever.

And deadliest animals were everywhere.

The elephants. Mosquitoes. Polar bears. Everywhere!

I had a fight with them.

Stamped me. Bite me and hit me.

I was dying, but I carry on walking.

At last, I spotted little light towards the end.

I moved fast, so fast and fast.

Then I read the board saying,

'A man with courage, determination and faith will often achieve his dreams!'

Now, I'm proud and smiling.
