Her life doesn’t give her any favours,
she merely tries to persevere
in this chaos that surrounds her.
Still, there’s a place she goes to,
when all else fails to reach
the normal she desires.
She reads of the Egypt of old,
the one you only check
in the stories of yesteryear.
Her mind reels on what was there,
she longs to travel towards
the past she learnt about.
Sadly, her world remains the same,
but so do her books…
