A journey through hard times

A Season in Hell

In shadowed groves where whispers dwell,
Through time's unyielding, harsh decree,
A soul traversed the depths of hell,
In search of what could never be.

The trees, like sentinels of night,
Stood guard along the twisted path,
Their branches, stripped of verdant light,
Portrayed an artist's somber wrath.

A river, flowing deep and dark,
With secrets held in silent sway,
Mirrored the soul's embattled arc,
Through endless night and fleeting day.

This realm, where hope dared not alight,
Where dreams were smothered in their bed,
Echoed with cries lost to the night,
A symphony of voices dead.

Yet in this hell, a spark was found,
A flame within the soul's abyss,
Defiant, strong, and unbound,
A beacon in the dark's dismiss.

For even in the deepest woe,
Where shadows dance with fate's cruel hand,
The heart's resolve begins to glow,
Defying what was never planned.

"A Season in Hell," the journey's name,
Not just a path of pain and loss,
But a testament to the flame
That burns in spite of sorrow's cost.
