{ redemption }

i roamed the streets at night,

afraid of the dark.

only to discover.

my fear,

was of the darkness

within me.

for, there are different types of

darkness.

all terrifying.

all necessary.

then, when the pain became too great and

i could not bear the weight any longer.

i died.

but, there was still air in my lungs.

for, there are different types of

death.

all terrifying.

all necessary.
