I step into the darkness.
Not a wisp of an idea of where I am going--
Not a clue of what the darkness holds.
I graze my frail hands against the stone walls,
and take a sharp breath of humid air,
Preparing for what the darkness holds.
I take another timid step into what I cannot see
And without warning, I fall to the ground.
Stairs, scaling downward at a rapid pace stand before me
Grasping for a railing that the walls lack,
I slowly continue downward
Without a clue of what the darkness holds
After more time passing had gone unrealized,
I see a light
"At last!" I cry and begin to run to the glorious light
Faster and faster I run; down and down I go
But the farther away the light became
I never did reach the light alone
Where did I go wrong?
How did I get lost so quickly?
The answer was simple, yet I tried to deny it
Only one thing could bring me to the light--
and that person was You.
