I walk

- Supriya Khadka

Mar 28, 2018-

 

My naïve steps—slow and steady,

Help me move forward 

I can feel a pull from behind,

But, I do not stop

Pushing everything aside, I walk

My goal is so far ahead, 

It all seems so muzzy,

It’s very blur, blur enough

  For people to think there is nothing,

But I know, 

it only gets clearer as I march ahead;

So I ignore what they say, 

And pushing everything aside, I walk

People sneer, they discourage

When I trip, they don’t help

But I climb, 

Climb the steep, tall hills 

Every woman for herself

I am enough, I am strong 

Pushing everything aside, I walk

My legs wish to halt, they wish to cease

My eyes want a glance, of what’s behind 

But, my heart is stubborn and brain is stern,

Checking all the desires, 

Pushing everything aside, I walk

 

Khadka is a +2 student at St Xavier’s College
