A Shaft of Light

There, within the sinister forest of despair he stood
Numb, lost as to what next to do

Before him lay a pathway to where…so unclear
As an empty feeling grasped his psyche, instead 

Being a man, in subtle silence he bled
And in solitude made plans his heart held

Many boulders, stones lined the way
Soon became craggy mountains meant to stay 

With blind faith, his gradual steps moved him to find
A future yet unseen, yet vivid in his mind

Soon, his eyes widen as he watched the fading night
As slicing through dense thicket arose a shaft of light

    Here is one I had not seen before of yours. Glad to be seeing it now. I have not come from that winners list, but I am sure this one must be on the list! Later I will find out for sure. I loved how you introduced the shaft of light in the last couplet, rising through dense thicket.
