Carrying On - Poem by Carissa McBride

Falling into this underground cave,
where the dark has no light to crave,
finding a land that has been lost,
with the creatures of a long frost.

the spotlights beating upon you
no sign of retreat
the fire below is calling
wanting the spotlight your hiding
your soul is cowering at the thought
the fire's drooling at the anticipation of his next treat

Consuming all that was hidden.
My soul left the fire forbidden,
to waste away underneath,
I walk the coals in disbelieve.

Burned flesh clinging to my feet
my mind can't comprehend the grief.
I look for guidance from above
and see his post empty of love

I’m moving on each day a shove,
the red ash is my flight,
as I look to regain my light,
the other lost souls
forever to be crying.

The courage to move on is dying
I can’t stop the painful crying
The evils in his eyes reflects,
The pain inside my souls breaks out,
Swallowing all fear and doubt.
