The Demise of Fear

The Demise of Fear

A Poem by MIngram

We find ourselves the most when in the thick of dismay, absent of solace, and on the precipice of insanity. It is within these times that our conscious speaks without echo and static, connecting the gap between mind and soul; we think without pretense, and the far away light at the end of the tunnel shines as a blatant reminder of our own humanity. However, it is also during these times that we are reminded that there is darkness darker than the depths of time; an unforgiving blackness creeping behind us at all times, and although not always apparent, we all know it is there. The CEO plagued by avarice, the loner with too much humility, the old man sitting at the corner bus-stop; they all will have their darkest day eventually. However, One day, we will come to terms with ourselves and realize that we are human, and the darkness will be embraced upon us, but will fail to penetrate our boldness. When we realize how much we have to live for, we will fear nothing. We will invite the darkness and live righteously; we will parade and triumph knowing that we have found ourselves. With open hands we will invite all who wish to live beautifully. Then, knowing happiness, we will live.

Author's Note

Don't fear the darkness, we find ourselves the most within.
