New Light

I have seen what i thought was light

but what i saw was a monster.

darkness has trapped me and i thought there was no escape

but now night by night i see stran by stran small sheds of light

but i am over welmed by the darkness i hardly deserve the light

i try to aim for the light but the darkness pulls back

i have reach the edge of my darkness trap

my hand is out but im not

my head is out but im not

my torso is out but im not.

my feet is out but im not.

but since my body is why am i not?
