Poetic Journey in Personal Discovery

Darkness surrounds my being,

And a lamp is within reach.

Hopelessness consumes me,

And I know where to go for release.

Powerlessness claims my existence,

When I have all the strength I need.

Death overtakes my garden,

I watch it wither and plant no new seeds.

The tide is rising and I’m still at ground level,

Not yet ascending the cliff.

Lightning strikes all around me,

And under a tree I sit.

The snake approaches and I do not move,

Though I have time before it arrives.

The tornado is in the distance, the cellar’s within reach,

Yet I do not go inside.
