OUT OF THE TUNNEL 163
An unknown writer has written...
"Some of us may enter the light
sooner than others. But we are
all moving toward it"
A train in a tunnel does not bring each passenger
out of the tunnel, out of the darkness, into the light
of day, at the same time
Those in the front part of the train are
the first to see a glimmer of light.
They leave the tunnel behind while many
of their fellow passengers are still in the dark.
Even so, while the train is still in the tunnel
all are moving towards the light.
So, all who have started on the journey
towards health of body and soul may
reach their destination as long as they
continue toward the light.
Out of the tunnel
Into the light
Hello to sunshine
Goodbye to the night
Farewell to wrongdoing
If we cling to the right
Victory is ours
If we'll stay in the fight
