Thank you for reading my poem. Comments are appreciated.

I walk a bright hallway,

From dawn until night.

An ancient, one-way corridor without exits,

And only darkness at the end.

 All who’s born must tread the same passageway.

Some sojourners will traverse with trepidation.

Others with joy or pleasure,

Some travel in awe and wonder,

And others in ignorant bliss.

Some travelers might stumble, stagger or fly.

While others will run, dance or crawl,

It doesn’t matter, no one gets out alive.

For myself, I prefer to stroll leisurely.

Savoring the moment, absorbing the light,

Enjoying the warmth of life.

All the while, moving inevitably nearer to that foreboding darkness,

My impending dissolution,

The final, incomprehensible extinction of light.
