Teacher: Stinson

Darkness surrounds me in every direction

Not a thing to be seen

I look and pay attention

But it looks like Im in a place no one has ever been

As I walk and stumble around

I sit down ready to give up

When I see light, light spread across the ground

I follow the light to find the sunrise

The light fills my eyes

I feel like Im released from a prison

I feel as if I rise

I have risen up from the darkness, I have arisen

I enjoy the light while I can

Until the darkness comes back

But until then I will scan

The horizon for it has the beauty the darkness lacks
