The Cavern Within

The Cavern Within In a cavern so deep, no sound to be real Peering into the darkness, fear so surreal Curiosity somehow drives you to the unreal First step into the abyss, of what may revile Darkness envelopes, looking beyond the light Each careful step, one slip, lost within a twilight Exploring ever deeper, your eyes fighting for sight Feeling the dampness, cold gripping with all might Deep blackness, echoing each sound Each droplet, some strange ultrasound Unfamiliar fear gripping, so profound Courage in you, hoping can be found Ever so deep, the blackness within the slope Your only lifeline, gripping a one and only rope The further the depth, more you reach and grope Where all of your courage and fears envelope
