The Maze

Where am I, in a cave?

Does it matter, with all that I gave?

I look again; I'm in a maze.

How did I get here?

I try to hold back another tear.

My vision used to be clear.

Now my vision is blurred,

Something bad has occured.

But a maze? How absurd!

I gave everything away,

In hopes for a better day.

Now everyone seems so far away.

It all comes back,

Like I'm under attack.

All the hope I now lack.

The things that happened, gone but here.

Is the exit far or near?

If only my vision would clear.

I fall to the hard ground, as I'm overwhelmed.

I'm out of control and can't find the helm.

Am I in another realm?

A realm of my feelings, hopes, and pain.

I look up and it starts to rain.

What in the world can I gain?

I stand up and search for an escape,

All over I traipse.

Can I find hope, even a trace?

Finally I just scream.

Can this all be just a dream?

Do I see a light beam?

I approach the beam of light,

Then start running with all my might.

None of this seems right.

How much longer can I hold on?

I find that I was wrong.

That wasn't light; light is what I long.

I stop short in realization.

I stomp my foot in frustration.

Now I'm hit with devestation.

I turn around and what I see,

Starts to fill me with glee.

Now I can be free!

There the exit stands unbolted,

Yet I still feel revolted.

I am still unescorted.

Is there someone out there?

I think I see a flare.

I rush through the exit and stare.

Everything is so beautiful and lush,

That I can't take it in all at once.

I've never seen so much beauty and such.

I am releived and filled with new hope.

I start to investigate the scope,

And decide to never mope.
