The Tunnel.

It’s so dark in here
I feel trapped !
there’s no light to be seen
deep in this tunnel.
It feels endless.
I take each day as it comes,
searching for something,
a sign – anything to show me that
there is light somewhere
here in this tunnel.
For where there’s an end
there is also a beginning.
A place I havent found yet.
Something my soul craves
Warmth, freedom !
surely I have earned them.
I have battled bravely
through the dark times
Shielding loved ones
from lifes bitter taste.
Even when i am at my lowest point
i am still looking, straining
for a glimmer of hope,
that shining beacon
to show me that my efforts
have all been worthwhile.
Each day i get a little further
and there.. in the far distance
just a spec of light
no bigger than a pinhead,
is the end of the tunnel !
It will take time for me to get there,
but i can see its comforting light.
each step takes me closer,
and i can survive
knowing that happiness
is surely waiting for me,
when i can step into the sunshine
and escape the darkness of
– the tunnel.

The Tunnel.

Artist's Description

When things in your life are dark and you think being happy is for everyone else, but not for you. You are travelling through The Tunnel. Sometimes changes need to be made, either in our perception of the problems that put us into the tunnel in the first place. Or perhaps a particular part of our lives may be coming to an end and we hide in that tunnel until we are able to face the hard voyage to happiness at the end of our tunnel. Here’s to that glimmer of light at the end, that we all deserve in our lives !
