Yor Nella

Loneliness

I struggled through that long wormhole to the other side
into a dark cavern that gaped so deep and wide.
Fearfully I leant against the dank wall of that black hole
and felt the coldness of loneliness flooding my soul.

Overwhelmed by the solitude of singularity
I felt cut off from the world of love and reality.
What alternative universe lay ahead I could not tell.
All I could do was hang in there, in that wretched place of hell.

Then at the end of the dark tunnel, before me I could see
a small speck of light shining and bringing such hope to me.
As it drew much closer I just could not believe my eyes
for it was none other, than the risen Lord Jesus Christ.

He came to me arms opened wide, and stood there next to me.
Reaching down He then lifted me from my gloom and misery.
Now I travel the road to a heavenly destiny
and because He walks with me I shall no more, lonely be

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem was written after entering a pothole with a team of cavers and wriggling through a wormhole which connected to another large dark cavern. I was the first to enter the cavern and was in relative darkness whilst waiting for others to join me.

    A great turmoil of thoughts caused due to utter loneliness and introspection leading to the light of His majesty and benevolence have been beautifully portrayed in this poem. Congrats on the well deserved poem of the Day.

    beautiful poem with lovely belief

    walk
    walk alone
    dissect and discover the self
    no ego; devastate its root by the stormy wind of JESUS belief
