It’s strange to think we fear the darkness when we are younger, A form of innocence that we harnessed I’d much rather prefer. Now that sounds crazy but hear me out it’s something that you’ll see, When innocence is gone you’ll come about to find it hides in me. That same darkness resides in you I dread it’s greater than, The darkness wrapped around your room that you feared at age ten. It’s something that grew inside your mind and clung to your rib cage, With every breath you come to find the wars inside you wage. It hides in every crevice and corner bound to your bone marrow, It tears apart your soul and worse sometimes it even shows. So I’d prefer those simpler days with light came faith and trust, The flick of a switch can’t keep at bay the darkness inside all of us.
