Let's Go For A Walk
Let us go for a walk
by Anusha Sreekant
Would you like to come along?
You must keep silent and not talk
You must not notice that I exist
And let me wander unfollowed
Will you come along?
Wait...did I tell you?
You mustn't remain so quiet
Do sing along with that robin
And do you speak the tongue of that brook?
Can you hear what she says?
She still has a long way to go.
Are you scared?
It is the middle of the night
And they say I am not sane much
Will you walk with me to the end of this night?
Maybe the darkness's hands would pull me inside
Will you scream for fright?
I belong with them
You can come along if you please
Are you already afraid?
Stay where you are
Fear has no place in that hell.
