Stuck In A Cave

By , Western Springs, IL
I sit in this cave,
Desperate for exits but
instead of looking for escapes I
lie here for days forcing myself to believe there is no way out,

But then I begin to panic
I start to search for the light,
Feeling around for holes in the wall
leading to a way out of this cave,
I know there is a light at the end of the cave
but I cannot find it,

I run further into the dark space,
Farther and farther and faster and faster,
To find out,
The exit is not just a doorway but more of an idea
and I am unable to come up with that idea.

So I am stuck here,
Writing poetry.
