The labyrinth

I close my eyes & I begin to dream
Only to be awoken by echoing screams,
A maze of paths & endless patterns
“Holy fuck” how did this happen?

I drift around there’s no way out
Barely can see I panic & shout,
Menacing roars from far ahead
It knows I’m here & it needs to be fed.

I run around it’s a lot to apprehend
Paths lead to nowhere except dead ends,
The pattern is complex & I’m not going lie
I’m scared & lost & I don’t want to die.

Instincts surge and logic appears
I need to find the centre everything is clear,
To find the key to open this door
I need to find and kill that Minotaur.

Starting to wish I listened to my teacher
How did Theseus kill this creature?
No time to think the screams draw closer,
I stumble, “shit” I’m in the Minotaur’s enclosure

I can feel it with me I’m fully aware
It’s sizing me up I feel its stare,
Out of the shadows it crowds my space
I nearly collapsed it has the same face.

Everything is clear the maze is in my head
The fear I carry keeps the monster fed,
I’ve to face myself if I want to be free
I’m the only one that’s holding the key.

    This verse is great!
    “Everything is clear the maze is in my head
    The fear I carry keeps the monster fed,
    I’ve to face myself if I want to be free
    I’m the only one that’s holding the key.”
    So applicable to life, discovery, personal progress, and potential adventure.

    The mirror of our dreams
    … is not what it may seem
    In twisting turns we go
    … without the chance to row
