Waking...a poem

Pain felt so real
Anguish leaving prints
On gentler souls
Fear shaking through
tired skin and bones
Forced to go on
toward collapse and death
Change an elusive fox
walking in quicksand
Choice not an option
in the real world.

Breaking point reached
body refusing to go on
With sleep's every sigh
soul slowly recharges
Eyes open to see clearly
true-self glowing bright
Courage replaces fear
filled with love
Soul wakes gently
back to life
in the real world.
