The Darkness

Written in a moment when I'd just had enough of man's cruelty, ignorance, arrogance, carelessness and wanted to hide myself away- but realised the opposite was what was required in these times.

The Darkness

The Darkness wakes us from the slumber of complacency.

Only from sitting alone in darkness do we discover our heart-wrenching longing for light.

Only by facing the horrors, feeling the terrors, can we know our soul's yearning for love.

Only when the finger-tip of Death grazes our cheek do we know what it is to be alive.

Thank God, the Darkness wakes us from slumber.

Such depth in so few a words. Those who have felt it happening can relate to it, I being one. It all takes is faith and determination.
Thank you Hazel for this beautiful piece.
