Waiting For It to End

Weights pulling you down

A feeling that's very familiar

No stranger you are to this

And you dread it since it's happening… again.

Let me go, you plead to deaf ears

The sheer helplessness leaving you drained.

You know there's light coming,

But you can't see it yet, the delay oppresses your already tired soul.

Maybe it's not really happening,

Maybe I'm over-reacting-

Maybe I'll wake up soon,

Maybe, someday, it will actually end.

A ship without a compass on troubled waters

The different directions make it all awry

A shroud covering your vision and foresight

You don't struggle anymore because you think its better this way.

You wait in the darkness for a pinprick of light

You see one and know its coming for you.

It's not the end yet, you sigh again-

And the amazing brilliance pulls you through your familiar abyss.
