Remember when you used to giggle
When your dad bought you a set of train for your birthday?
That was a few years back and you were such
A lucky girl who can play both Barbie dolls and boys games.
But now Farah,
Train is no longer a toy for us to play,
Because a train is now a big bulky solid machinery
Made by men to increase our mobility
But will hurt you entirely if you get into its way.
Train now works automatically with no driver to slower the speed,
No one would open the door if you got stuck in between the gap
And who knows you might be carried away just now
When your body was caught in the middle of the space?
Thanks to Allah that you were saved by His mercy tonight,
Though your backbones hurt and your pride was shattered apart,
We are lucky to still have you walk with us back to the college
So next time, please mind the gap and never hesitate.
