The Beauty of Darkness

Black.
Pitch black.
Sounds evil,
doesn’t it?

How can something
that brings darkness,
and darkness only
be good?
How can it be pure
and majestic?
It can’t be, right?

But it is.
Because darkness isn’t all that bad.
For it is the darkness that makes the fire stand out.
For it is the darkness that makes the stars shine bright.
For it is the darkness that gives meaning to light.

We curse it,
we fear it,
we avoid it like the plague.

But, the truth is,
without the dark…
The light wouldn’t signify
knowledge,
happiness,
optimism or
hope.

The light would simply mean
nothing at all.
