Red Houses

By: Nourhan Khairy


I walked the road alone,
Didn't scream, didn't groan,
Didn't mourn, didn't cry,
Then I saw a light come by,

I thought this was my mark,
When a red light came in view,
I followed through the dark,
Silently, I didn't argue,

Red houses lighting the way,
Red houses lighting the night,
Before it becomes day,
Red houses lighting the sight,

I heard crackling sounds,
Afraid, I took a step back,
I heard screams and pounds,
Then everything turned black,

Someone covered my face,
Then carried me, as if it was a race,
Looks like I fell in trap,
When they said I didn't need a map,

Red houses lighting the way,
Red houses lighting the night,
Before it becomes day,
Red houses lighting the sight,

I woke up to the sunlight,
After I thought I had died,
It was a bad dream,
Another one to join the team,

Red houses lighting the way,
Red houses lighting the night,
Before it becomes day,
Red houses lighting the sight.
