defeating the tenebrous

Darkness cannot see inside things

that is the purpose of light

brightening gloomy places

even the interiors of many minds


if that help is wanted

to dispose of their dark thoughts


and there is another kind of light

of a greater strength

that will not let life be blinded

by shadowing attempts to cloak its beauty


and diminish the names of love kindness and compassion

illuminating their ways into words

that try to blacken and prevent each one

from shining in the heart 

◄ edge of dementia

ohh..its just another murder ►

'if that help is wanted' it would seem that these days there a lot of people who enjoy living a shadowy existence for whatever strange reasons of their own.

to them normality is abnormal.
Good stuff Leon.
