"Stress of the trigger finger"

Stress of the trigger finger

pressing upon the button

of the flashlight

            shows the way,

reveals clarity 

            and existence.

In the realm of Dante’s woods,

            no matter what light may be,

            it’s ever dark.

There is only one path,

            one option,

            no other way around it.

Standing still in one spot

            the path unravels out

            toward destiny,

            a predetermined fate.

Just have to keep walking

            on that proper course—

            there is no other choice.

Stress of the trigger finger

            coated with heaviness residue

            burdens the button

            of the flashlight.

Darkness prevails.
