Bewildered emotions making me blind
covered with darkness racing through time.
A shimmer of light shines its way through
to only be faded as darkness subdues.
I struggle with fear as i battle this night
afraid of this darkness that threatens my life.
I'm tired and weak ,too drained to speak
surrounded by pain with darkness to blame
yet i continue to stay strong.
Digging down deep resenting defeat
i reach for it all with hope not to fall.
Bursting within releasing deaths hold
shooting through fresh as if wilted and old.
My darkness fades revealing a glow
shimmering white as if covered with snow.
Calm soothing emotions consume my soul
assurance of life while gaining control.
No darkness in sight my faith restored now with control
and assurance aboard.
I begin again breath fresh with glory
avoid the darkness and begin a new story.
