The Boat Ride

a poem by Heena Kadel

In the moment of the nights dawn
when the birds sang their last song,
I let out my boat in the golden water
which sparkled in the nights glitter.

Slow and steady I pushed the rows
Breaking the silence, the nights vow
I felt I was the night king
I had the power to make bells ring.

I felt the power the passion and glory
I stood high I was the king of the story
but suddenly I realised when I looked
that I was all alone and no one stood.
