Dark Rooms

yesterday almost in my hands
but today so far away.

For a while there was joy in my eyes
but today only sadness and fear.
Yet something good has happened.

I am not afraid of searching for myself.
I know I can cry away my tears.
I know I can face the pain
and enter the dark rooms of my soul.

I am willing to surrender to pain,
not knowing what lies in front of me.
I open a door and step into darkness
no one has ever seen.

I know I am already waiting there,
listening with fear in my eyes
as the sound of my steps is approaching.
