There’s a light at the end of the tunnel
Enclosed by a dead end.
Do you turn back or remain?
Have you plateaued?
You’ve gone through mazes and tunnels, and come out alive,
Yet none have ended with walls.
Mazes have many ways, many ends to choose from,
But tunnels, they’re only promised a light at the exit.
