I walked and walked. I did not know how many minutes I have walked but I was tired and exhausted. I wanted to give up but refused to do so because I knew I'm reaching the other end of the tunnel soon. The light seemed near. I continued to walk.
I walked and walked. I did not know how many hours I have walked. There wasn't any clock there and the light from the other end of the tunnel was the only thing I could see. I did not know whether it's daytime or night.
I continued to walk. I knew I'm reaching the other end of the tunnel soon. The light was there. I could see the light. I knew I'm getting nearer and nearer to the other end of the tunnel. I needed to continue to walk.
I did not know how many days have passed. Perhaps, months or years... Nothing changed, I was still walking in this endless tunnel finding my way out by following the direction of the light. Then, only I realized. My hair had grew longer, my fingers were longer than usual. Wait, did I grew bigger? Cause I felt tight in my clothing.
I felt like I have been walking in the tunnel for years. Or, was it true that I had actually walked the tunnel for years? I did not know and will never knew.
At last, I stopped walking and looked at the beautiful white light which I once thought was the light of the guardian which was going to lead me to the exit of the dark scary tunnel. Alas, I was wrong. I had been deceived.
Deceived by the great white light which seemed so near and yet so far. Unreachable. I was walking mindlessly in the endless tunnel for years before I realized the white light was just my illusion. A false hope. I had been walking for nothing. I would never reached the other end of the tunnel no matter how many miles or years I have walked.
Deceiving white light
Full of white lies
And empty promises
Without any questions
You walked and walked
Hoping to find the hope
You have left behind
Illusion it was
You realized, alas.
Turning back there wasn't
In the endless tunnel
You are trapped
Fooled by the light of deception.
