You're afraid

Because you don't understand.

You don't want to face

Anything that isn't what you believe.

So you lock yourself away

And hide from the world

That you believe is full of hatred.

But in the midst of all that hatred there is a light

And you try to reach for it

But that shadow you hide in

Pulls you away

Into the deepest, worst corners of your mind.

Slowly and surely you lose your sense of reality,

Going crazy from your fear.
