once up on a time


Once upon a time in a midmay
While Lila was home in a dismay
There came her cousin rushing in a haste
To deliver a message of courage and hope
'Soldiers say to run far away
That a war is about to begin'
She said in a frightening way
That made a hopeless hope stand in Lila's way
'Are you running away too?
Which place are you going to? '
Lila murmured not knowing who she was talking to
For her brain and vain soul
Swirled again and again
Later, after few days
She was perfect without a daze
In a foreign-neighboring hospital
How was she flown there?
Only God was there.
