Why do we fear it?
Is it because it reminds us of evil;
What if black and darkness was not here to blind us,
but to protect us.
When night falls,
dosen't darkness hide away our fears in the shadows?
It keeps us from seeing our minds scareiest thoughts.
Darkness is like the guardian of the night.
He should be loved,
We hurt and destroy darkness with flames and lights.
And to gain what?
Being able to see?
To see what we fear lurking in the night?
To see what darkness wanted to protect and hide us from.
When we do see,
we blame the darkness.
It is not his fault.
He does not have the power to get rid of our nightmares.
All he can do is cover them up out of our sight.
We should not blame darkness for trying to hide what he can not kill.
He is the blanket that covers us from the cruel things we have yet to see.
Do not fear darkness.
Fear what hides within it.
