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.
