Miles and Miles and Miles...

Have you ever been inside a cave
With no opening in the end?
No sunlight shining through,
No light to guide you home.
The rocks are rough beneath your feet,
And your inside feel so cold
So cold that you can barely feel,
Anything at all
Thirsty lies deep within your soul
You hunger for company
But theres no one to lean on
No one to hold on to
No place for sweet comfort
Continue walking through that cave
Hoping for an end
Even though it seems endless
You still keep walking
Sharp rocks scratch your body
Blood trickles down your skin
Later on you'll have scars
But you don't care about them
You just want to keep walking
Down the cave with no end
Unaware that your destination
Is nothing but a dead end
