Look for the chink in the wall of water,
Look for that light that will make the dark alter.
Walk the long bridge that goes into the dark close your ears to sound of screams,
They are only your fears released into the nightmare of your dreams.
Walk bare foot along the bridge unless you slip,
Tread slowly don’t rush you don’t want to trip.
There are no railings to save you if you fall
No safety net to save you, no nothing at all.
Look towards the chink of light
It is far away and deep into the night.
Steadily is the only way to proceed
One step at a time sadly there is no use for speed.
Don’t look up and don’t look down
Keep your eyes ahead don’t you dare turn round.
Lest you slip, lest you fall no need too scream no need to call
There is no help for you if you fall.
I have tried so hard to fight that wall
To cross the bridge and smash it all.
The further I go forward the further in to the distance it retreats
I have run, and I have crept and still the pattern repeats.
I try as I might, I try as I may
But pain is the same by night and by day.
I must keep going I cannot give in,
To reach the chink of light even if my chances are thin.
I can’t go round it I cannot pass through
There seems no way over. Help me, what am I to do?
