There is a darkness in each of us

Toying with our integrity

Making us pit ourselves against our own good and evil

We struggle to hold it together

Hoping that disappointment doesn’t become our newest companion

With bated breath we await the outcome of our choices

Hoping that judgement won’t be cast upon us

Shunned by our innerself

We sit lonely in the darkness of the night

Praying for a different tomorrow
