Darkness surrounding me

There's no

Light at the end of the tunnel

I can see

The world too heavy for my shoulders

No longer is

Hope flickering

Where I find

You are

I can't go on

Never will I say

I can be happy again

Because of you

    Another homeschooler! Hello, my dear. This was so well done in both directions. During the long, dull days of being cooped up, remember that you will have a relationship with your children that few others get to experience.
