In the deep recesses of the soul

Darkness resides

And I find myself struggling to see

What I once thought was light

Has grown so dim

And the audible voice I once heard

Now silent

 

All alone I find myself groping

For anything soul-quenching

But all I taste is sour

And the smell a strong stench

In this deep dark abyss

 

Is there hope to emerge

As a free bird

Or will like always be spent

Reaching through darkness

In vain

to fulfill a longing that will

Forever remain

 

My body grows limp and faint

At every turn

And I feel doom is certain

For my breath is running out

 

So tired of fighting

I grasp my arms around my chest

In desperation

And realize I am now

Broken into pieces

 

Fear overtakes me

As I faintly scream

One last cry for help

And shut my eyes to die.

 

Then, suddenly I am

Awaken

By a brilliant light

Shining in my face

 

All is clear, crisp, and bright

The fresh air

Soothes my heart

And I realize

My death

has now freed me to live

 

Wrapped in warmth,

My soul is now elevated

With a radiance like never before

A gentle breeze launches me

To fly like an eagle

 

And from the heights

My new eyes allow me to see

The pain I endured was worth it

For I am now Free

 

And what seemed like a

Fierce deal

Was really

Breaking me free from

My cocoon

To become who I was

created and destined to be.
