A Light, Yet Far

Through dark and dreary roads, I traveled.
Soon all light began to fade, and die.
Losing all hope and will to live,
Traveling through a far and distant land,
My world began to spin.
The kindling flames within were soon to be extinguished;
Then, warm, radiant light touched my face.
With my hope revived from a cold and lifeless heart,
I pressed on.
Finding my way through the darkness of
The dark and dreary roads.

There is always light on the roads we travel. You are only in darkness if you refuse to find the light. All it takes is a desire to find your way.
