To fully feel the light, you have to live the dark.
Walk on the narrow lines that divides each.
Tipping ones toes into the sensation
of a burning fire adds to the feeling of life.
How can something so good be wrong
with that liberating feeling?
That is the ultimate person’s question.
Pain is the leader to the dark.
Self-absorbed selfishness and being rewarded
for deeds that bring pure pleasure
may lead a person further into confusion
on the tingling provided by the addiction.
The light can make you squint from the dark.
So hard and exhausting to each
and that much more difficult to stay.
Satisfaction in the hard work
assists in appreciation to everything
brought through walking properly
with the quiet glow of the light.
Living there in these immoral times
can only be grabbed and kept
through a fighting spirit.
You can only know you are there
in the light by holding the memories
provided by the dark.
