Dark Tunnel

See the tiny pinprick light 
That in the distance glows, it 
Grows as I move closer through 
This dark and dreary hole.

I would cash in favors for 
A flashlight or a lantern. 
Man was never meant for the 
Existence of a mole.

I had both eyes open when I 
Waltzed into this wasteland, 
Welcoming the challenge of 
A bold spelunker’s quest.

But here the night is smothering, 
Leading me to ponder that 
When next I need a challenge 
I’ll just smash a hornet’s nest.

Find a rope to lead me 
Out of this dark tunnel maze,
Ease the claustrophobic grasp and
Put my soul at rest.
