Battle Within

After a battery of events

he is filled with trepidation

everything is out of order

fodder for the imagination

Running into the forest

light filters and causes shadows

trolls are everywhere

limbs appear as gallows

Desperate to escape

a path to end the madness

shadow points to a tunnel

place to run from the sadness

Entering in the tunnel

a light calls to him

reaching it

sudden peace within

Safe at last

shadows disappear

blanketed with comfort

destiny is clear

Returning to the present

fear is ignored

rising to meet the challenge

sanity is restored
