Its so dark and cold here.
Nothingness seeps in to my soul
I cry silently into the night sky,
praying for absolution,
ready for redemption of my crimes.
Night forces spread out across the land.
Thick and heavy it consumes everything
The stars above sparkle,
then go dark and become hollow.
All lights are now gone.
But in the distance a ray of hope shines.
The darkness creeps closer.
Threatening to overtake one more thing
on a quest for absolute power and control.
For the first time,
I feel a sense of rallying deep in my soul,
My inner spirit waking up regaining control
I am drawn to the growing bright light
I can see the battle playing out before me
Light against dark
A war that has gone for eternity
Now its time for the absolution I prayed for .
I just have to make my final choice
Do I run towards the light ?
Or do I let the darkness consume me ?
