The Beam within the Darkness

There came the days,
Where ecstasy and joy is pushed back by sorrow and guilt.
Immersed in these dark dense fogs,
I was totally baffled and puzzled
By the appalling sight I saw.

Engulfed by fear and depression
I walked desperately through the foggy labyrinth
Trying out to pave a route
Through the pitch darkness

The labyrinth seemed to be cataclysmic
That now,
I was like a trapped mouse
In a boundless burrow.

Wearing the blanket of death around me
I walked further
With a compulsive will to start
A new, fresh beginning.

To my astonishment,
A beam of light stroke
Through the dense essence of darkness
Directing me on to my path
With ease and normality.

I reached my destination
And with hopes stirred high,
I experienced a fresh start
Hoping to face the darkest of times
With power, aspirations and tenacity.

Thank You!
