There is a tunnel.
The proverbial tunnel.
Not Alice’s rabbit hole.
Not Hawking’s black hole.

Nor Nolan’s wormhole.

A tunnel.
A path.
A task.
A journey.

There’s work to be done.
Odysseys to be completed.

At any time t, the tunnel could fall.
It often does.
Either it falls — or you do.

You fall, you get up.
You have a task. Ready.

You fall, you get up.
You can’t wait. Set.

You fall. You get up.
You will finish. Go.

The light at the end is in the mind. You can’t see —
It’s dark and wet. Full of speeches and mockery.

Cover your eyes.
Have faith.
Walk proud.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel

Your light.
My light.
The Light.
