Poetry

Hidden

Hidden

a Poem by Raquel Swann

Within the many layers

Of skin tissue and bone,

I lurk within the shadows,

Waiting for guiding light.

Not many travel down this far,

Afraid of what they may find.

Clear mind and clear heart,

Choices have been made.

Not much longer will I

Remain hidden.

Tally marks on cave walls

Hoping to outlast the darkness

Within the lonely dwelling

I keep trudging on

In search of light

Of love

Of hope.
