A Poem by KCthelastboyscout

Part 1 a study of the human soul

This darkness that consumes me...
Consumes us
Where does it come from?
Who placed this seed of evil inside us to root within our hearts?
We allow it to control our better selves
We seek to destroy all meaningful things around us
We are lost in madness

But there is the light
It can be seen in the distance
So why avoid what can be seen?
Why avoid what gives life?
Here, in waiting, is the unknown
Stay in this comforting place
Everything capable of love will eventually end
Embrace where you are
You are already here...

Why is man so fascinated with the beginning of things?

The beginning is the end and the end the beginning- great words and deep thoughts- why people choose dark instead of light they will only know perhaps it’s easier for them to cope reaching for the light and walking it brings many challenges many would rather avoid🌹

There is an instinctual drive and fascination towards both darkness and light. We learn from them both. That is called growth.
Thank you for sharing your work here~

I like the rift you have set up here, and the question of " why do we have darkness?" It really is an interesting topic and it is one that is hard to answer; and since we all have darkness, what are we supposed to do with it exactly?
This is a very interesting and thought-provoking poem, good job :)

There is always thee expectation of hope in anything new. It is hope that makes life worth living.

beautifully put, the constant struggle between the dark and the light that abides within us all

I think we carry both the dark and the light, so we know the difference and appreciate and respect both.
Your question in the end is magnificent. Why indeed...

Great insight to the beginning and to the end of time when we arrive its fascination then the game begins the beauty should always remain the tough times take upon us but we are the strong fighters

I suppose beginnings are so much more fun than endings, but in endings there is always a beginning too of something else, maybe even better for them hardest part is the in between.
