A Way Out

I'm feeling trapped,
caught between a hard place
and the unknown.


at the end of my rope,
grasping some semblance of hope.


Then out of the corner of
my tear-filled eye,
I see a door open ajar
and a glow bursting forth,
a way out from this hellhole.


But walking towards the light
comes with a price,
an irreversible choice.
