From darkness to daylight


I felt trapped inside a huge dark tunnel,

Some force was holding me from back

and won’t let me move an inch forward.

I struggled, cried and cried out for help

but it seemed that no one could hear me!

I felt so weak, helpless and restless,

I could hear only devils’ laughter

and that sounded so cruel !

But suddenly I felt from my deep inside

that I was not alone, someone whispered

in my ears to say that I must not give in.

Soon I gained enough courage and strength

to overpower all those standing in my way,

I started to run faster and faster,

often I stumbled in the darkness

but my struggle continued unabated.

The devils tried to chase me all the way,

but I was far and far way ahead.

I could see the light outside the tunnel,

It was becoming brighter and brighter

And finally I was out to the open

In bright light and fresh air.

I was overjoyed and my eyes got filled

with tears in utter happiness.

Hi Kamalesh my friend, I love the way you have written this, perfect description of feeling trapped and desolate, then finally feeling stronger as you see hope - the light at the end of the tunnel.

Brilliant and voted up.
