Poetry

Lone

Written by Jacob Ibrag

She walked a hundred miles

only to realize that life is all but

a strut. Noticing a lone cloud in

the charcoal sky, she stopped and

slowly laid on the earth. ‘Who

did you run away from? Which

bridges have you burned?’

  5. Very thoughtful. Bridges we may have burnt unknowingly, never realizing when we were running away from them.

  7. I adore the line ‘only to realise that life is all but a strut’. It left such a beautiful image.
