1. Darkness

Darkness.

It sets in at night

Wraps around us like a blanket

Warmth

Protects us from outside

Wherever that might be

 

But darkness can also be scary

Cold

It can be death

The nothingness after life

The slow rotting of us

The good things gone to waste

To dirt

To dust

To memories

 

And memories can be forgotten

They die with us

Leaving us and them

Alone

Gone

Turning to dust

Aging and withering

 

Letting the world go

Blundering on without us

No care in the world

No small impact

We are simply pawns

In the game of life

All the good and bad

The things that have happened to us

Wasted

Nothing matters.

 

And yet

In this civilization

Things happen

And matter

And yet they don’t

But they do

Everything happens for something

Someone

But we don’t know who

 

Darkness

It can also mean hope

It is a change to start afresh

Anew

To let things start over

And try again

It is a new beginning

And an old end

Darkness.
