Strong Shadows

This thick dark tunnel is around me
but I can see specs of light & hope
through the cracks of the dark tunnel

My heart is familiar with this light 
But the darkness is so heavy 
It tears my mind and my flesh to pieces
The light that my heart knows is
swallowing the darkness

My suicidal depression is lifting
It’s flaming claws are being pulled
violently from my flesh
It’s paralyzing fear,is no more
A new feeling arises called hope
Unshackled by the light of the world...
