Silent Journey

Darkness surrounds me
Breathtakingly painful
Standing up from the shadows
As I gaze into the abyss
Trying to self-reflect and analyze the existence in question
I stare into my soul
I see a shrivelled up embodiment of self-neglect
I see an abundance of manacled thoughts
As a withering flame trying to withstand the negative onslaught
I envision hope
I see a glimpse of light trying to resurface
Soon rid of this fetter
I prepare to embark towards an unknown destination
I am reminded of the abstract concept of time
As I slowly walk down this path
This monotone path with hushed voices
This silent journey.
