snakes and ladders

I went down a tunnel
so dark and dangerous
Searching searching
For Truth
But all I found
were snakes and lies
And a ladder or two
i went further
i could not let darkness take me
further further down
excavating all that had blocked the way
and there,
in the centre,
i found her
the child i had left behind.
i reached out
as she looked toward me
40 years had passed, but she had not aged.
she smiled.
‘I’ve been waiting for you”, she said, and took my hand.
