Light vs. Dark

This girl, this woman, right now she stood in the light, but she could still into see the darkness.

The light is no place to be, she used to think. It's just too easy to see.

But the darkness, t was right over there, divided from the light by a long spear like shadow.

She looked up and she saw the stars over all, fancying she could see galaxies and shooting stars.

Acorns fell, she heard them, she saw the dark, she stood in the light.

The river rushed on.  

The darkness always calls, she thinks.  There are creepy things in there, things that beckoned.  Ugly things, true things, beeeeeeooooootiful things.

But you don't have to spend all our time over there, she thought.
It's ok to stand in the light.
