Some people say they are afraid of the dark.
When others say that it’s not the dark you are afraid of,
but what is in the dark.
I don’t believe either of these theories.
People aren’t scared of the dark
and their not scared of what the dark hides,
they are afraid because they don’t know.
Not knowing is the terrifying part.
I have walked a path in darkness
and then in the light
and what unknowingness scared me in the dark,
proved to be beauty in the light.
