A Good End

A Good End

Life, a tunnel:

Light at the end

distant and quelled

A friend now fiend


There be a bell

a tune it rends

story, it tells

of turns and bends


Doubt then funnels

breaks that we mend

in dark tunnels

lacking some tend


‘Distant’ light sells:

for self, I fend

Rope from dark-hell

pull-fears portend


“Shall be well!”, says

Light at the end.

Context:

Light is universal. We like light. We hate darkness. This is an optimistic poem that describes my firm belief that everything will work together for my good no matter how undoubtedly sad everything may seem.
