The Life, A Labyrinth
Lost inside the swirls,
I call it a labyrinth, this life.
What do you want to ask of me?
I’m just tired.
Relentlessly trying break these walls,
By the strongest weapon I know.
But don’t you see?
I reach nowhere.
Yet, I see everyone around me doing the same thing.
They count the number of walls they break.
They compete with each other. For nothing
But, there’s something that keeps me alive.
My emotions, rush through my nerves,
Bursting out of my skin, as pain.
I notice that I’m sliding down a path, in spirals, leading into the darkness.
But there’s still a hope, a light, when I look up.
When I close my eyes, I feel the darkness.
Not just see.
It flows from above, through my veins,
Corrupting my body, and feeding the insecurities.
But the sun does rise at the horizon.
Eating away all the murk consuming me.
When I see you, behind the veils of my closed eyes.
Goosebumps rush into my nerves, relieving the pain.
The silence around hugs my heart, tight.
Yes, the warrior has fought yet another battle and won.
