You wear a brave facade to hide your fear of the dark.
Looking for another light to follow
because your own light has finally dimmed
You extend your arms looking for a hand to hold,
someone to embrace.
Only then to realize
you are alone.
You place your hand on the wall,
the only thing that is there.
The walls,keeping you enclosed,
turn right at an intersection.
You chose to go left.
Back at the beginning.
Back where you started,
the maze has changed.
The walls now jagged with broken glass
Through the broken glass
Your face becoming a stranger
You raise your fists full of anger and frustration.
You pound on the wall.
The walls collapse
like the tears on your face
They fall like your hopes and dreams
Like dominoes,the walls of your mind fall.
You’re exposed, alone among this enormous dark room
Fog covering your eyes,
The walls that hid you from the outside expose further, terrifying darkness.
The darkness consumes you, engulfs you, wraps it’s menacing arms around... You.
You’ve forgotten what the sun looks like,
You’ve forgotten the flowers, the laughter, the joy and ecstasy.
You are lost, hopeless beaten and bruised.
You lie on the ground, succumbing to the depression.
Embracing the darkness, as it overwhelms you.
You stare at the walls around you,
they get closer and closer
The air suffocating your lungs
Your eyes tearing up
Your mind becoming unclear
You get up and run but there’s nowhere to hide
Cornered in the dark
The room gets smaller
You cry wishing you could die.
You bang your head against the wall
The wall dissolves,
You are blinded by the bright light,
You squint your eyes,
You see your friends, they pull you into hugs, they wipe your tears away
Hope fills your lungs,
Joy fills your eyes,
Heart swells with love
Your friends take you by the hand,
They lead you to an open field,
Endless possibilities lie ahead.
Embrace the darkness.
For you will find the light.
All of a sudden, you will put one unforgettable fight
And defeat the plight.
