When will I see the Light Again?

I’ve found that I’ve dug myself a hole,
Walked into a tunnel,
The light disappears behind me slowly,
like water through a funnel,

Soon enough I don’t know where I am,
Can’t see behind me or in front,
Darkness has engulfed all,
And I now feel his brunt,

I call out into the distance,
hoping to hear a reply,
a voice, familiarity,
my attempts go a wry,

SILENCE….

Darkness hides everything around me
As I journey through his den,
so I ask myself the question
When will I see the light again?…

As there’s no one here but me,
no contact with the outside world,
I can’t comprehend it…
how has this unfurled?

I look and probe for a way back,
a path to salvation,
but can’t see a thing,
due to the light’s earlier starvation,

I pull a lighter from my pocket,
and spark a small flame,
a dim beacon of hope,
Try and get my mind in the right frame,

But I can’t help blaming myself,
for getting into this prison; this dark place,
and with no one to reassure me,
hatred joins darkness in this space,

But not towards someone else,
it’s all focused on me,
the way I look; the way I act,
it’s the reason I’m no longer free,

I feel like just giving up,
and letting everything go,
as the only thing keeping me alive,
seems to be blood flow,

Darkness hides all around me
As I journey through his den,
so I ask myself the question
When will I see the light again?…

I’ve lost all my strength,
and pain is all I feel,
But somehow I’m glad,
as I’ve made it a meal,

A meal for my mind,
to start me moving forward,
I’ve now made a goal,
to strive toward,

So I continue to march on,
fight ahead in this bout,
but fear and nerves join the gang,
And I can’t see a way out,

Darkness hides everything around me
As I journey through his den,
so I ask myself the question
When will I see the light again?…

I stick my hand out in front,
hoping someone will grab hold,
pull me free to safety,
but that thought is bold,

As the only sounds I hear,
are the echoes of my feet,
and all that I see,
is where darkness and rock face meet.
