Run. That’s all I can do.
I’m trapped in a labyrinth with a monster.
I book it around corners of the maze
Desperately seeking a way out.

I keep running through the maze,
Following twists and turns, never slowing down,
For if I do, it will catch me.
And there is no escape from the monster once it gets a good hold

Then I see it, the light.
Down a dark corridor shines a white light.
It’s almost surreal, it’s so bright it hurts my eyes,
I run for it, the light is so close I can almost feel it.
The warm glow and sweet relief. I step into the light

Everything is quiet for a second.
Then the light dims and I see where I am at,
Still trapped, in my mind.
And depression is still after me.

But the light gave me hope.
Just for a moment, everything was still.
It was like I had actually escaped.
Like I was loose of depression’s hold

So I keep running,
Not knowing how or when I will be free,
But knowing I will get there as long as
I keep chasing the light
