Darkness has no enemy; it knows no bounds. Light only masks what darkness already knows and it will gladly wait for the glory of return. Darkness does not sneak, it merely is. Why then should I not be afraid? Why does my heart welcome what many fear?
For in the dark I can search deep within the catacombs of my soul. No distraction of sound, no visible sign of beauty and yet my senses come to life. Like the hairs on your arm before an electrical storm sensing what is truly to be.
Darkness takes your sight away and the brain says do not believe what your eyes can see. But images emerge for bearing like stars to a sailor, merely there to guide and not to show the way. Shudder; am I learning to like this heavy darkness?
Darkness has no friend, such a lonely being, could this be the weight? I think not. The weight of darkness comes from my soul. It comes from what the darkness provides that the light shrouds away.
In the comforting glow of light we do not question, we rationalize with sight. Audible sounds become associated with the mirages and our hearts become addicted. Just like the moth, we are drawn to the light and its false sense of wonder. But I am on to the light; darkness showed me the way.
For only in the darkness can I see the evil that occurs within the light. I see the elderly sitting alone in a room that time forgot. I see the single mother struggling to feed her child. I see the sick and feel their despair as they struggle for hope. I see the family praying for just a home and then I see you.
Do not fear the dark, it will vanish with the light. The question is what will you do when you leave the dark? Will you chose to act on what the darkness has shown you or will you close your eyes to the light? It is up to you but the darkness is watching. See that shadow?
Just a deranged thought process I woke with up in the middle of the night. I feel better now. In the light, I am off to take one elderly person out of their time forgotten room. What are you doing in the light?
