The mystery envelopes him like a blanket of darkness,
all directions make no headway,
becoming a seemingly aimless wander as if in a maze,
Head buried, arms clasped, uncertainty taking over….
The strength, the courage, the will, the hope have all been lost.
That light, that blinding light is nowhere in sight.
Once upon a time, he had so many aspirations,
reality, life, experiences, they all happened.
Tears roll freely; he feels emotions not felt in such a long time:
self pity, anger, resentment all course through every vein.
It’s useless staying down there, get up he had heard one too many times.
From the depth of pain, he vows, it’s about time…about time!
