Darkness Comes (Poem)

Darkness comes,

My body becomes alert,

Fear can appear at times when darkness comes,

It’s the fear that can make me alert,

Can’t say I like being alone when darkness comes.


What would appear in the darkness?

Night time makes the neighborhood not feel safe,

Depression and loneliness can appear in the darkness,

My body and soul doesn’t feel safe,

It feels like my body and soul longs for protection in the darkness.


It is in the darkness that I must become my own light,

My thinking can take me into the darkness,

Thus, I must use positive words to help my soul see the light,

I must believe that I can fight off whatever comes in the darkness,

Perhaps be like the lone moon that gives a powerful light.
