Beyond the Tunnel

There is light
beyond the tunnel.
The traveller sees it.
There is light
but what lies beyond?
Unanswered questions.
The uncertainty that breeds anxiety.
The traveller wants to reach the light,
yet is afraid to.
So it’s true
that sometimes
even the most distressing
and undesirable of circumstances
could become familiar and comforting pain
if endured long enough.
The traveller makes her decision
and takes another step forward.
