There is darkness in this world,
A lot of it.
But there is intense beauty as well.
We see the beauty easily.
Wondering what the colors mean
What the animals say
What the heart really is.
We must learn,
As we venture from childhood to adulthood,
To continue seeing the world
With the wonderment of a child.
The darkness consumes us,
And we are left alone
In darkness and hate
Wallowing in our own self doubt.
