The Tunnel

by Kelsie Tyler about a year ago in art

There is an ending to the darkness. Find the light by looking inside yourself.

The Tunnel

Darkness is all you see before you.

Do you go through the tunnel and face your fears?

Or do you stay out here at the entrance?

Never to know what's on the other side.

Is there light at the other end?

Are there happier times at the other end?

You will never know if you don't try.

Face your fears and step outside your comfort zone.

Embrace who you can become.

Enter that tunnel and never look back.

It is natural to be afraid of new obstacles in life.

Tackle them before they tackle you.

One foot right after the other.

Start at a slow pace then pick up the speed as time goes by.

Your comfort grows with each step you take.

Look at you! You're doing it!

I'm so proud of you! I knew you could do it.

The end of the tunnel grows closer and closer.

You can see a bright light in the distance.

Picking up your pace, the light grows bigger and bigger.

You're right there in front of it now.

You go through the bright light.

The bright light is the version of yourself you are meant to become.

Good job!

Welcome to becoming who you truly are.

Writing is my way of coping with the struggles I face everyday. Ideas are constantly running through my mind on what to write next. Having an escape that is also my dearest passion...is pure bliss. I wouldn't have it any other way.
