When I was young and na´ve
Darkness I feared.
A dim nightlight my
Only solace. A childish
Fear soon transformed into
A spear and shield.
It became my Novocain
In the light, all I saw
Were the scars but once the
Sun sets and the moon rises
I feel alive, all burdens
Seem to lift, and I am
Cast adrift from a corrupt world.

What was the case and now has changed

It's kind of weird how when we're young we gravitate to the light but once we get older we find darkness to be a welcome blanket in which to hide under. I like how you shifted views of was was once scary and made it empowering-shield in hand and all and then the contrast of how light now affected this person adversely. Metaphorical or not, you did a great job and I hope to see more from you soon :)

Thanks for posting this in #SayItHere!
