Is Anybody Out There?
We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.-Joseph Campbell
I can only crawl towards the light
That travels farther the more I advance
The only sound I can manage
Is a squeak
That reminds me of the torment I survived clawing myself out from the pit
And everything I lost
But as I near the apparent end of this never ending tunnel
Where I will feel the sun on my face again
And be rid of this insatiable darkness
I’m also reminded of all I’ve learnt;
Life doesn’t keep us down
As long as we have legs and arms to walk and crawl
Our only excuse is ourselves
Is anyone out there?
Will anyone hear me if I wailed with the last of my strength?
You’re all out there, fighting your demons
I’ll muster the remaining of my strength
To reach the light
No one will hear me
And one wail is all I can manage
I’d rather not…
