Planted in my underground life
Longing for something new,
I felt like an old man
Who's life was nearly through.

Then an unsuspected door
Let in a crystal light
That drove me to my knees
As it tore apart my night.

It exposed me as a child.

Then it shut without permission,
As it had arisen,
Leaving only tears and vision
That this hole was but a prison.

What was there? Where
Had I looked into?
Darkness said the vision wasn't true.

But I knew my hollow sphere
Held nothing to compare.
So I dug where the light appeared
And struck a buried stair.

Though my fears all disagreed
I traveled 'round its bend,
Wondering where these steps would lead
And if they'd ever end.

What I saw along that way
My eyes could not believe.
There were places I just prayed
I'd get a chance to leave.

When I thought I'd been misled,
That all those doubts were right,
Then I reached above my head
And thrust into the light.

After the darkness and doubts of the climb
In one moment the goal was attained.
Feeling the truth of the quest on my face
Was a thrill I could scarcely contain.

How can I tell of the currents that ran
Through my hands finally touching the air?
Words can't convey the emotion explosion
Of each cell becoming aware.

Leaving behind my old cave so confined
I emerged in the land of the sun,
Trembling in awe at the height of the sky
And the soul of the man I'd become.
