From Under the Rock

Not able

To do anything

Curled up

Hair

Gnarled

Black without sun

So tired

Not able

To do anything

Seemingly

Asleep

For eternity

.

Eyes

Bleary

Under heavy lids

Body

Thin and weighted

Trying to move

To crawl out

From under the rock

That dark

Cold rock

.

Finger

Inches

Then

A rest

To much

Not able

Denial

Wanting

To move

But that’s

Not enough

.

Pushing

A little more

Each day

Trying

To reach that

Bright green

On the edge

Of the cave

Trying

To get out

From the black hair

To become

Free

.

Fingers

Curling

Into

The grass

It feels

So cold

So soft

So delicate

.

Forward

The light burns

The un-see-able

Burning down hot

Eyes

Heavy

Pushing open

Seeing

Unknown

Mostly green

Not though

What was seen

Trapped

Under the rock
