Walking down in my cold feet


My hands were shivering

the whole idea about walking down to face everyone was killing

yet there was no escape

my tummy rumbled

I kept my eyes shut

wished to be deaf and blind

so that none could be seen or heard

for a split second, the whole world around me stood still

I could hear no words

I could hear nothing

All was just blank for few seconds

there they came to take me away from my home

I walked down all decked up

I felt all the eyes looking up to me

the heart rate was faster than I could count the beats

I felt I might just break the hand chain and run away

but it was near impossible

I gathered up all my courage and looked up

there I see all my family

yes!! It is my wedding

the day I should be happier and smiling

yet am in dismay

I decided to smile for my family

the ones who decided to let me off to another family

As I slowly ascended the steps where my groom was waiting

I gathered all my courage to lean forward to take the huge step

The marriage- A big step

I accepted the change and smiled to the whole crowd right in front of me

soliciting everyone around me that “AM A HAPPY BRIDE”.
