My Adventure

On my way home, I fell asleep,
Bus 500F and I in slumber deep.

Suddenly I was jerked out of dreamland,
With horror, I saw I was way past my homeland.

Lost, I was in a strange place,
Night’s darkness was the danger I did face.

I stumble towards the only light,
Found myself in front of ‘Bakery Bright’.

Stomach rumbled, food I needed,
“One packet of biscuits”, I pleaded.

In solitary silence I munched on chocolate cream.
It tasted like something out of a dream.

The best choco biscuits I’ve ever tasted,
Smile on my face and my stomach sated.

Asked for directions to get myself home,
I think I’ve had enough of a roam.

My inconvenience was now an adventure,
Without an encounter with a fearsome night creature.

Reached home safe-a little late,
Mom whined about the long wait.

When I explained,
She no more complained.

That night of my inconvenience I dreamed,
Now more of an adventure it seemed.
