they said, “happiness is at the end of the tunnel.”
i know they mean well.
i know they’re correct.
what most people tend to forget
is the fact that
some people are closer to the light than the others.
some of us have little trouble finding our way out.
some of us are still lost in the dark.
some of us are losing our way
and some of us just fade away.

i still believe
that i will reach the end of this seemingly endless tunnel.
all i could do
while finding my way out
is to make peace
with the shadows.
