Darkness spilled in from the windows of our houses
Our dreams became the splinters in our mind
And every time we tried to wash the blood off our hands
We scraped off skins, muscles and cells
But we were rotten to the bones
Endless darkness, down down down to our very core
There it was, the curse of the devil gnawing at the our heart
Our ability to love
We offered forgiveness to those who offered something in return
We performed charities only we had something to gain
We loved only when we were loved more
And we cried and complained when we weren’t love enough
We had overcome that darkness
We had thoroughly absorbed it and made it our own
Darkness had become us as we lived in light.
Eventually, we are light.
