      Default the light is brightest in the dark

      So a very misunderstood thing is transformation through ego death. The realization that though your body may break, your soul will live on, damaged, but stronger than ever before.

      Being a scorpio I would like to attempt to put into words the hard to grasp and even harder to explain fascination with darkness we feel, the devotion and attraction to our worst fears and most traumatizing pain. I hope this can help some people umderstand why some people tread through darkness with a fearless, curious gaze, like a child in the jungle before attacked.

      Why would one scared out of his wits
      plunge with eyes open into the abyss?
      without anger
      or sadness nor fear
      would one dunk his scorched flesh
      into salt
      with no tear?
      Why, you must wonder
      -for it makes little sense-
      would one tread past the comforts
      of innocence?

      Amongst the Earth
      and within our souls
      lurks the darkness of pluto's
      where the elegant bliss of innocence
      is snatched from a delicate child
      in a hell filled with sadists
      spilling blood, killing and running awild.
      That deathly cold pain;
      a snake in the rain,
      which slithers hither, there and about
      but resides
      in the deepest, darkest trenches of our minds.
      The ones who hear its painful screams
      and run from fear around the mist
      fail to percieve
      it as a being;
      all the darkness once light,
      and can lose or gain
      through hug or fight
      its ever so sinister hiss.

      You may say,
      "I won't enter,"
      but darkness will come.
      Black storms will dissenter
      the temporal dawn,
      drowning life's light to dusk.
      In the end of days
      when fire sprays,
      when darker grow the shades of grey,
      lose your will
      to tread on.
      Remember the pain you've risen from
      and how resilient from each
      you have become.
      Invoke knowledge of gloom,
      clear composure of glum
      -and through all-
      remain as one.

      The darkness may kill you
      or lead you astray,
      can burn you and freeze you
      and throw you away,
      'til life's light
      is submerging into the void
      deeper and deeper
      every day.

      But if your determined
      and if you survive,
      if fearless through night
      toward light you stride;
      once you've witnessed the horrors of death,
      you'll never have felt so alive!
      You'll gain the knowledge
      most fear to know,
      which those who do
      can never show.
      Future pain may draw a tear,
      yet darkness holds
      no longer fear.
      In fact,
      although it holds their demons,
      some cuddle close
      and hold it dear.
      For they've tasted enough blood
      and tears from their pain
      to realize
      the principle laws of this game;
      the dark and the light are of the same kind
      fighting for rule of the coin,
      but light's spectrum's alive!
      If the path it is on instills despise,
      it'll change its mind;
      without a thought,
      betray its side,
      setting the ice

      Where light shines brightest
      one should fear,
      for from that only black will come.
      Yet where night resides,
      one has a choice
      to crush one's fear and spread rejoice!
      Darkness is light turned inside out,
      longing to refill its hallow.
      The light shines brightest in the night,
      but where light lies the dark will follow;
      we'll have spurts of joy to drown our sorrow-
      'til the day and night are one.

      I've suffered and felt
      the blazing hell
      of any shadow who's shown its face,
      because though I can run,
      I can't escape;
      the dark will come,
      it's simply fate.
      So I've ever slowly learned to heal,
      because to all
      this pain is real.
      I seek the souls with eyes of night,
      surround them with bright specs of light,
      and dance away their will to fight,
      so at last I may truly relate.
      The leer of evil
      which spreads with death
      can burn to death
      our precious flesh,
      yet our souls,
      though crushed,
      will live on....

      Our path will reach
      the climactic peak
      of our heart felt dedication
      if throughout our journey
      others offer light
      and reset our eyes
      to the destination.
      The dreams of love and light
      could be real
      if we were heart to heart
      and face to face,
      if all felt what all others feel,
      all of our pain could be erased.

      Hi there skaterdude ... welcome to MW.

      Being a Scorpio myself, I can certainly sense the intense flirtation with darkness in your post.

      Life is a delicate dance between the Dark and the Light ... and depending which way you dance dictates which partner you allow yourself to be lead by.

      May you dance in the Light.
      In Loving Memory.
