Thirty poems in thirty days: DAY 29


There's a light at the end of the tunnel
it's called redemption
redemption for all those times you walked by
and didn't say a word
for all those times you spit into the wind
only to duck and let it hit him
redemption for the places you went
and the paces you spent
trying to put faces behind you
redemption for all the times you never shared
the struggles you were going through
too ashamed to admit that you were hurting too
isn't it true
how false men breed false boys
who lead false lives
and live falsely
success still grants them destiny
and fortune, smiles upon them recklessly
so when you see a member of the false clan standing tall to collect his laurels
keep in mind
that flowers will fade
and crowns will wither away in time
but true shine
that true shine that bursts forth from you like a perfect crime
is the real reason why redemption stares the condemned in the face
and brings goodness to night
for in your patience you stand at the end of the tunnel
and all they can see
is your light.
