The Transition

by Sanjida Shaheed

I have heard the call.
It is loud.
And clear.
I can’t ignore it
Any longer.

I was building a wall
Around my heart.
Now I’m busy
Breaking it.

The horizon was invisible
For so long.
It almost ceased
To exist.
Like a long-forgotten
Fairy tale,
It was only a fantasy.

Truth was buried
Under mulitilayered confusions.
But the veil has been lifted.

I can see
A healing light
Glowing in the distance!
And it is getting nearer,
Tearing misty coverings.

Please don’t mind me now.
As I journey from darkness
Towards light,
I fumble and fall.
I am under construction.
