Lost in this darkness,
took the wrong turn.
Was it a mistake I made,
or just an adventure?
An impending tribulation awaits,
unperturbedly I move on further.
Faith in my sense of direction,
the path is still benign, I tread.
Pitch black, I might even be blind,
Or maybe I am stupid instead.
To go through something like this,
Without even a remote assistance.
So I took my favourite jar out,
flying around in it, a whole swarm.
Lighting up everything ahead,
I can definitely not trip down.
I know where I am going,
I am being helped. But I think,
I take their freedom in turn,
That needs to change, now.
"Let this be my last adventure,
you have done great", I say.
I open the lid of the jar,
out came all the tiny light bulbs.
Fly away dear ones,
I owe you the most.
But I must go alone now,
The onus is mine to endure.
All of them got out,
out of the jar they went.
I knew I'd be left with none,
In the jar. With me. None...
