I was in a dark place…for a time I don’t wish to recall, but I can’t force myself to omit

 

It was a place of my own creation, and I built the walls so thick that unwittingly I sealed up my escape

 

I was lonely and cold, inside a black hole; I couldn’t see the bottom beneath my own feet

 

There was no window, no opening, no crack to peer through; a thing such as light was a thing of the past

 

A thing old and faded, out of sight, out of mind

 

What reason had I for living, in a state confined from life, in a state of seclusion and grief, without a sprig of faith?

 

So blinded and jaded was I,that never I did realize…I wasn’t the only one trapped in the box suppressing my self

 

There were others I had overlooked, and not seen lined against the back walls

 

Unmoving, uncaring, unfeeling…unapproachable as stones in the grave

 

I was frightened—I was so afraid…of losing the last piece of me

 

The piece which still longed for deliverance, for an exodus from a miserable state

 

I couldn’t think—I hardly could breathe, as I crashed into wall after wall

 

Desperate to find the lost way, and relief from the sufferings of all

 

I gathered my strength and resolve, and faced down a mirroring fate

 

I stared long and hard, then shattered the glass…

 

And last—I stepped out through the gate
