Darkened Enlightenment


Mysteries abound where light cannot be found

Illumination exists only to make things unclear


In a place where night stands tall and sturdy

Daylight will cower at the feet of midnight

As the creatures of obscurity can be heard

Chanting melodious whispers in the mist


Truthfully said, the light plays tricks on eyes

So is it certain that the darkness never lies

As sun sets, the gloom brings crystal clarity


Within the darkest pitch I see everything

Secrets unfold as many stories never told

Play out right before my newly opened eyes


Haunting ancient tales I find so familiar

Bring the comfort of the shadows close

To be my cloak and keep me sheltered

From powerful, harsh and stinging light


From the darkness came so many answers

My enlightenment was found within the night
