• Darkness •  Just some Thoughts by Deanna Rizzo

Darkness will feed, it will

suppress and taunt, leaving us 

weak, but it’s favorite malice

is to deceive, and make us

defenseless to it’s whims.

I’ve begun to embrace my

darkness and I think that

really pisses it off. 

If I coddle the darkness, the

fear of it won’t consume me,

only make me grateful for it,

grateful that it allows me to

appreciate the light inside me. 

Darkness is in all of us. Accept

that, and what’s to be afraid

of anymore.
