THE LONELY HOUSE

Written by: Dalila Agtani

Walls shattered, roof falling apart Dark, desolate and dreary A haunted house with zero activity. Very lonely indeed! An unclaimed property The land acquired by the city I have seen the lonely house Bulldozed to its death! Where’s the soul’s house, I surmised I heard it loud and clear: Where I sat Trumpeting laughter and life Spewing boundless energy! A bench where the house once stood An epitaph reads: “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life”
