Enter the places you fear going the most.


I peered out my window
Into the darkness of the night.
My thoughts ran wild
Contemplating the contents of the darkness.
What was out there?
Were there demons and monsters,
Or strange beings from afar?
Would I be confronted by
Forces of destruction or beings of love?
The contents of the darkness
Remain unknown to me.
Going out there, I think
Would answer my questions.
Going out there, I think
Could lead to my demise.
Now I must ask,
Should I be ignorant and safe,
Or dead but wise?

Crossing the Threshold:

Still looking out the window
I wonder about
The contents of the darkness.
Gnawed by curiousity
I am compelled to enter the darkness.
I go to the door
Tempted to cross the threshold
That separates lightness from darkness.
I cross the threshold.
Now I am engulfed.
The darkness I feared
I am now enveloped by.
Now I shall unlock
The mysteries of the darkness.


Around I look,
Hoping to find
Something I have never seen.
However, in the darkness I see nothing.
There are no demons or monsters.
There are no strange beings from afar.
I am not confronted
By forces of destruction
Or Beings of love.
Finally, it hit me.
There is nothing in the darkness
That can not be seen by the light of day.
So enter the darkness
And you will see.
It contains nothing
But the things you have already seen.
