Alone in a tunnel of impossibilities.
Alone again, alone always, without hope.
Running, falling faster, tears in my eyes
I chase the promise of light at the end of this seemingly endless tunnel.
Afraid of the dark, wanting to have a night light shine over me,
Wishing for the sun to warm me, something I took for granted.
Pleading desperately with God, with someone, with anyone to help me find a way out,
Realizing I must be the one to discover an exit,
I believe in myself to find my way,
Turning around I see a burning, bright warmth,
I have found my way out, and rejoice in the sun, soaking it in, never to take simplicities for granted again.
