break forth o beauteous light

i have grown tired
  weary
  worn

exhaustion weighs me down
the sound of futility
fills each footfall

i have struggled
  in vain
for decades

it is time for reprise

show me the portal
let me face
    the final light
let me step
    through the gate
      into eternity
      or nothingness
it matters not
    any more

just show me
    the light

  1. Your words, in the body of the poem, are straightforward, heartfelt. It is interesting that you chose a title reminiscent of Shakespeare – archaic, ethereal. Is it more a spiritual release that you crave, do you think?
