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.
