Tunnel of No Lights


I knew I would have a journey.
So I took preparations
And courage for the voyage.

I stepped into the pathways
Slowly and steadily,
Keeping dreams and hopes in heart.

It was a tunnel on the way
With no alternatives.
I entered hoping it to be short.

To my dismay
The Tunnel was long
With sharp twists and turns.

It was deep dark
And I kept on moving
I knew I have to!

I was mad for lights
I tried to be optimistic
But I was tired and hopeless!

Though I kept on moving forward
In search of lights
For the touch of a little hope!

And still I am walking on and on
Thorugh the darkness
In thy kingdom of no hopes!

  1. It’s a beautifully expressed poem, I feel this way too…the tunnel does have an end to it…just a way bit to go..darkness can’t blind us if we can keep our hope and gaol in sight…Awesome.
