Place of The Escape

Between Darkness

She looked across the world and saw naught… The Darkness that was once warred against now overtaking the hearts of the Innocent. We each believe by fighting the Darkness we may defeat it, but that’s rarely the case. While we were not intended to give up, but we were not intended to wage war in this way. We choose the wrong weapons. We grab a hold of more Darkness, further Darkness.

Now, pick up your heart and speak into the hearts of others patiently, calmly. Silhouette vs. silhouette, we become mere counterparts of The Shadow. Grasp the Light. Seize the Love. Shield yourself from the fusillade with steely silence, and pity those lost enough to believe it is the answer. They are mistaken, they know nothing better.

Just as candlelight is the comfort in the cave, so should we strive to be Love in the Hate.

Perhaps we will light one another and burn our way through this curtain.
