No Tunnel, No Light

It’s dark in here

And narrow

I can’t seem to make headway

Because I cannot see

What’s in front of me

Or behind


If I stretch my arm out

What will it touch

I’m so afraid to find out

Yet I cannot be idle

Because the unknown

Is scarier than the truth


So I step forward, boldly

Only to have the darkness

Swallow me up

Was that a noise I heard

Or just my own heartbeat

Pounding mercilessly, loudly


If only there was light

A glimmer of hope

To light my path

To give me strength

If only it wasn’t so dark

Could I find my way
