Gloomy lights, Soothing Darkness

I recall my voyage through life
In a world brimming with strife
As I shuttle from the epoch of childhood
To this phase of adulthood
For the day's death
Is the night's birth

Walking through this valley of darkness
My mind sipping the sadness
This long awaited moment of my being
Demanding the majestic walk of a king
Has left me wishing to see life through a child's eyes
And flee from mankind's lies

I behold the light
But there is comfort in the darkness
The gift of sight
Has brought me nothing but madness
I am in love with this ignorance
To foolishly fulfil my youthful exuberance

Without fear of consequence
Or the constant obtrusion of my conscience
Striving to give my existence a definition
Taking strides with determination
Fulfilling imagination's desire
Poetry bringing words to inspire

I crave to return to childhood
When life felt extremely good
With nothing to worry about
And the world gave you no doubt
But now I'm a man
I need to do the things I can

I cannot but dream of my Gloomy lights and Soothing darkness
