Home (A Perspective Poem)
Alone in my own sick world.
Wondering why I am still stuck here.
Figuring out all the possibilities,
But always going back to square one.
The same old routine repeats over and over
But no help arrives at my door.
Wondering if I am the only one who is all alone.
Wondering if I am the invisible one.
Here I am.
Just stuck in this dark room of mine.
Trying to save my own soul out of this darkness.
Failing and failing again.
Slowly giving up.
Finding no hope for me to live anymore
And then that one day came to me in an instant.
A bright light shone and I followed it.
The more I walked, the more blinding it got.
Thinking that I would get absolutely nowhere,
I hear birds chirping and the cool wind running through my hair.
Looking around in amazement at the sight of everything.
Everything that I was missing out on for years
Finally in front of my eyes.
The place where I was truly meant to be.
Finally free from my own suffering.
Finally free of my own darkness
And embracing my new reality of relief.
