In a dark place, A dark space. Headless faces take no notice, as they float by. All I want is to be able to see the light. The sun never shines here it’s cold but there is no snow, The darkness surrounds me.
How do I find the light which was promised to me? If I work hard the light will shine and one day I will see. Well I’m 11,680 days in and still I see no light, But every day I stand up in the absence of light and I fight Headless faces float past and assume I’m alright.
Just shadow boxing, but I’m punch drunk. Hearing whispers of “don’t give up, stick to the plan and you will soon be unstuck!”
I can’t even see the plan, I have no idea what to do next My eyes are wide open but all that’s here is darkness. But there is so much to be grateful for I can’t stop saying thanks. But the sacrifices I have made, it feels like I’m walking the plank. A life lived for others, there is no shame is being the water carrier, But anytime I try and take a drink there is an invisible barrier. Like only the entitled are allowed to drink and my thirst shall never be quenched. As if I made it on the team but will never get off the bench.
But I have to keep fighting my family depend on me. The sun might shine for you, but the darkness follows me.
