"Return From Solitude"

Dark as night within a room

The door was shut upon my tomb.

I waited long for day to come;

Those empty, wasted years have gone.

~~~~~~~

Ever trapped inside my mind

And in despair I tried to find

The handle and forgotten key

To free me from that misery.

~~~~~~~

A scream emitted from my lungs

But got no farther than my tongue.

The silence of my tomb must stay

Unbroken; death would have its way.

~~~~~~~

I had a single windowpane

But could only look in vain.

The sun would always rise and set

With or without my consent.

~~~~~~~

I entered into the unknown world.

All around me blackness swirled.

There was no fear, but hesitation

Held me back from realization.

~~~~~~~

One of many, all are one

Revealed beneath the vital sun.

We have the power to control

The final path we take our soul.
