Turning down the last road
dead end
no where to go
running with this heavy load
can I last?
I don't know
I need to escape,i need to break free
the madness
It's taking over
disguised and hidden,infringing on me
I'm scared
and moving slower
there's got to be a way out
a door...a knob
a key
is someone here? I've got to shout
anyone hear me?
the light turns from day to night
its late
my heart is thumping
with my body I must fight
stay awake
please keep pumping
sprinting, crawling, any way,
to get
to where I'm going
there's no reason for me to stay
to suffer...
this hate growing
I think I see it, the light above
a staircase
out of here
its like a gift, a pure white dove
so long
I leave, with one last tear
never shall I know you fear,
never shall you call my name
never shall I dream this dream
this nightmare, all the same
I'm free, I have escaped
from guilt,from hate, and darkness
to live in love, with God above
never lost again

The author's comments:
This poem is about any struggle, so it is relatable. No matter how big or small the hardship, the light will always be at the end of the tunnel.
