Resignation


Time passes…
Days turn into weeks
Weeks into months
Still here I am
Battling these demons inside…
Will I ever be able to forgive myself?
In spite of this tough exterior
I am but WOMAN!

Running through the dark woods
Alone
My feet feel the cold shrivelled leaves
Bleeding with every sprint I take
Heading towards a slightly lit hut
In the mist
Where my heart may finally be at ease
And silenced…
Alas!

It is but an illusion
For you are not here
Left alone in the dark
With my tears as my only console…
Submission to mother earth
Perhaps her energy will put out the fire
And release these demons inside

I turn to you…
Do not forsake me!
