I heard there’s a light within us all

but that light dims, and vanishes eventually

and in some sooner than others.

We are all perpetually doomed,

grasping at straws that were never there to begin with.

We try to reach, but fall into this black yet beautiful abyss.

after all, can light exist without darkness?

We’re told to be bright, exuberant

we hide in the darkest spectrum,

behind the shield that defends against the light.

It’s destructive.

It reveals our flaws and inconsistencies to the universe.

But with so much to relieve ourselves of

we still fear discovery.

We’re terrified of what we will reveal;

afraid that we will crawl into an infinitely binding shell,

and never come out.
