Forgotten Language - In That Night

To stay back in those shadow lands
To hide from the day’s light
To stay in the comfortable silence all my life
I hate the darkness
I repeat over and over again
I hate the darkness
But I fear the light
In the light nothing is hidden
In the light they can see it
The shadow of your soul
The shadow of your self
And you can’t hide it
For there’s no darkness to fall back into
And so I curl up in the darkness
Longing for the light
And in the silence of that night
I heard my soul whisper
“You don’t have to be afraid
Of the light”
So with unsteady steps
With weak ankles
I stumble into it

And am bathed by that glorious light
