Take the journey.
Into the dark tunnel.
See where it may lead.
Into the darkness you go.

With shoulders back.
Eyes forward.
The darkness will take your hand.
And you will follow.

Screams might torment you.
Traps might ensnare you.
But on you go.
To your destination.

With an end in sight.
Hold on tight for the ride.
For it is a journey we must all take.
The journey of life.

    I love the pic! Beautiful! I really like the tunnel/journey concept! In a way, this reminds me of William Blake…the poetry and the image together–each going further than the other in different ways….

        I’ve always been partial to the Romantic poets….and your work seems to lean that way quite a bit. Thank you for sharing it!
