Do not waver, do not wait for
Your eyes will acclimate to the dark.
Once invisible, doorways appear
Each one a darkness unto its own.
You can walk in.
You can walk on.
You can see and you can choose.
You are free to come and go.
The knowledge you find in the Unknown is
Yours to keep, rarely copyrighted or acknowledged,
A sweet reward for stepping in, and while
Decidedly not free, yours to use.
Yet the ever procreating fears that
Dance and Sing in your mind work
Hard to hide the Virtues of
Digging into the Unknown.
They have seen and they have known.
They guard their treasure jealously.
In the dark no one sees. No one knows
You are wandering through the maze.
Your obscurity is your weapon as you
Venture into the dark, sending your
Fears backpedaling into the shadows,
Your illumination exposes them as
Tricks of the light, of the night.
Because you too have seen, have known.
You have found the virtues in the dark.
