Fear No Darkness

Fear No Darkness

There is beauty in pain,

Even when you bleed,

Even when you cry.

There is love around you,

Even when the darkness

Hides its gentle light.

I know how bleak

And insane life can become.

I’ve been cut by

The savage sword of hate,

But know…

When you look,

When you search in

That vast darkness,

You will see a

Lantern of light.

That will be me.

Come find me.

  1. Beautiful, thanks! I'm confused by your spelling of the word bleak, however.

    1. Thanks, Joey. My bad. That one flew by. It's corrected.
