Poetry Dice Challenge: 3000 Week #2 | Entry #3 - Breaking Dawn

in poetrydice •  last year


My demons follow closely that I struggle
As if lost in a pyramid's dark maze
my feet drag on and stumble

I feel like an alien in my own world
In perpetual darkness,
there's no moon in my Underworld

But I want to break free from the demons here
No longer is this gloom my home
I want my sadness to disappear

I will keep trying no matter how hard
My smile will soon break through
and eventually, I will catch my demons off-guard

And like a fish in the sea I will swim away
With hope burning inside my heart
someday, my night will turn into day

My feet drag on and stumble in perpetual darkness. But I want my sadness to disappear. I will keep trying no matter how hard. And someday, my night will turn into day.
