In the depths of my darkness I stumble each step I stand and I fall but I will not give up just 
yet .
I start to crawl I am frightened and alone but still I will try and find my way home 

In the depths or my darkness I see the things from my nightmares I hear how they laugh 
just the sound of them is bad enough but they come forth to try and take my life .
I struggle on my fingers starting to go numb from gripping the earth and trying to more on .

In the depths of my darkness I claw my way around I wish that I could hear a familiar sound 
falling again my body slams into the ground I wonder when I will be saved and found ?

In the depths of my darkness I try to find a light I search with all my strength and might but 
still I see not one glimpse of light should I give up this never ending fight ?

In the depths of my darkness I shiver with coldness I wish that I had one ounce of boldness I 
feel like a mouse in a house full of traps one wrong move and the traps go snap .

In the depths of my darkness I lay down to cry the tears pouring out of my eyes how sad 
can one get with out falling apart ?
With the very thought of struggling on I just cant .

In the depths of my darkness I slowly fall asleep with the grief in my chest I feel so weak .

In the depths of my darkness I wake to find there is heat on my skin so with the last of my 
strength I open my eyes but to my utter surprise there is no darkness in sight only warm 
and bright beautiful sun light I relies now that it was not the dark holding me but me holding 
the dark to close to my heart .
