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 I’m lost & I don’t want to die.
Instincts surge and logic appears
I’ll get to the centre, everything is clear,
I need to find a key to open this door
With the courage to face a 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 & fall, into 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’m to face myself if I want to be free
I’m the only one that’s holding the key.
