Darkness

Darkness gives us the gift of concealment,

Hiding our true selves beneath the shadow.

The darkness gives a sense of protection,

Shielding us from all that we dare not know.

 ~

The illusion that comes with the night,

Are but dreams of comfort and harmony.

In comparison from the harsh bright light,

That brings forth the world in all its cruelty.

~

The dark embraces the light in itself,

Patiently sowing its seeds of deceit.

Biding its time within its lonely self,

It waits to sprout the light’s final defeat.

~

But the dark’s foul glory betrays its flaws,

For the heart of its strength lies its weakness.

Just one small candle can escape its claws,

And shine a path through wisdom and meekness.

~

As a candle stands amid winds that blow,

Its brightest light casts the darkest shadow.
