The Tunnel

The Tunnel

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Eight, seven, six, five.

Four, three, two, one.

 

The one chance I’d been

thriving for my entire life

was upon me.

Directly in front of me,

there it was.

 

Would I fumble my only chance?

 

Would I give in to

the temptation of quitting?

 

I’m walking down the dark tunnel.

The crowd noise increases

with each step I take.

 

I don’t want to leave

the darkness of the tunnel.

For the darkness is my home.

 

The darkness has birthed me.
