Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

This is the first time I wrote a poem that doesn't start with 'Roses are red...'
My life is like a tunnel
Sometimes the walls are wide and smooth.
But I take a wrong turn,
And I'm forced to scrape though a tight crawlspace.
My life is like a tunnel.
There are moments that I see the warm light a short distance away.
But somehow its moving farther and farther away from me,
Until its nothing but a dim flicker.
My life is like a tunnel.
The darkness and sharp edges tempts me to surrender in fear.
But I see the bright spark almost within reach,
I take a deep breath and follow.
