The road if weary and long,
A heavy heart casts a shadow,
A shadow drained of hope,
Desolation breeds like a plague,
Swamping any faith the light will break through.
The ocean is deep and infinite,
It swallows the thought of goodness,
Sucking away precious life,
Drowning all salvation,
No light can penetrate its depths.
The mountain goes on forever,
An insurmountable barrier,
It blocks out the light,
Its sheer size is overwhelming,
Nothing can go over or around it.
The bridge is hidden from me,
Invisible I am blinded,
Perhaps it is there,
Yet I am unable to find it,
Should I stop looking, resigned to my fate?
