The tunnel – A poem #writephoto

This poem was written for Sue Vincent’s Thursday photo prompt. You can join in the fun here:

Man caught in the light at the end of the tunnel

The tunnel stretches ahead,

Dark, dreary and damp,

It follows an upward curve,

Just like a stone ramp.


The floor is slimy and slick,

Water drips from the roof,

I try to stay controlled and calm,

To appear cool and aloof.


Something brushes my cheek,

The velvety wings of a bat,

Filling me with disgust,

It looks like a flying rat.


In the dimness ahead,

A patch of golden light,

I step forward with vigour,

My soul fills with delight.


The brightness of day,

Of goodness serves to remind,

My faith is restored,

All negative though is declined.
