Good vs Evil: A Light At The End of The Tunnel

Updated on September 15, 2013


As I stood gazing into his pale blue eyes, I could only see a mere hint of grey.

No longer a recognizable twinkle or gleam of the son, I once knew.

He looked like my son. However, he was not inside my son’s earthly form.

I could see he was lost, lost in a deep, dark sinister world.

A world of lies and deception, wondering how he was going to take his next trip.

In his eyes, I could see the demon.

The demon had surfaced from all the abuse his body had endured over the years.

In this constant battle with the demon inside his head……….. in his mind, he had lost his soul.

He had become unrecognizable along his path of destruction.

He traveled on a long, dark narrowing road to a dark and deadly world.

This path he chose imperiled his life and his very existence.

No good would come of the choices he had made.

On his devastating path, he had forsaken all of his beliefs and teachings.

I keep praying; he will find a light at the end of the dark tunnel.

A light leading him back to his love for God, and show him the path he needs to travel to save himself.

    Beautiful proudmamma and touching!

    I pray along with you and I know the sadness that surrounds your heart each moment you feel his soul slip a little further away.

    I have seen that look. I have no answers for you, only encouragement to express your self and love yourself, and imagine goodness and love surrounding you.

    Peace be with you!

    Thank you LABrashear. I don't feel brave, but thank you. It's my coping mechanism. If I didn't put some of my feelings into words, I think it would break my heart even more so. It's a pain I would not wish on my worst enemy. I never dreamed it would happen to me, my son, or my family. That's why I always tell people, don't ever brag...."not my child"....."not my family"...those words can come back and bite one very quickly. Thank you for your comment LABrashear and giving my hub a read.
