Self Imposed Anguish

The darkness that envelopes you is not absolute.

It feeds off of lies, and grows with fear.

“You don’t have the courage” 

“You’re a failure” 

Negativity consumes and destroys.

Isolation confirms the belief

That you are unlovable.

What you don’t realize

Is that the darkness ends

When you decide to open your eyes

And see the lies for what they are, baseless

Light allows us to see things as they are,

not how we imagine them to be

This truth gives you strength and determination

Now you don’t let these lies beat you down

Little by little, the courage you thought nonexistent,

Begins to flourish

And the darkness that surrounded you becomes relative

Because it can not dominate the light you let in.
