Analysis and comments on I was in the darkness by Stephen Crane

Comment 4 of 4, added on March 12th, 2008 at 6:57 PM.

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

This reminds me of a boyfriend who just broke up with me for the second
time. I am ready for the light.

so much is true. when are able to see in light what we speak of or wish
for, it all seems wrong. turn the light off so it all seems right again.
if only in my head.
