Eyes closed , darkness is only seen

Blank and lonely

Same gray feeling haunts me

... Leave me

Go!

Running away leads to nowhere.

Pushing and pushing but no improvement.

Weight on my shoulders,

Too much to bear.

Sweat and tears are all that are managed.

Falling to my knees,

Feeling

Total abandonment,

Feeling like a failure.

The pain... like my beating heart is being forced to stop

Frustrations cover my faith

Am I able to succeed?

Doubt

Confusion

Remorse.

Then with out warning

Realization hits

Blinding frustration recedes

uncovering the blissful faith

Soothing the pain

Easing the remorse

I shall prevail
