Stephen Crane - I was in the darkness

I was in the darkness;
I could not see my words
Nor the wishes of my heart.
Then suddenly there was a great light --

"Let me into the darkness again."

It is so much easier to be blind to our lives; our obligations, our weaknesses, our failures, fears of the past coming back to haunt us, fears of the future not living up to our dreams, fear to act. It is easier to live in darkness, embracing ignorance
