Darkness Follows

It’s not about the time of the day; it’s about you.

The darkness doesn’t just lie within the materialistic world; it resides in you.

The question is not “Why me?” but “How do I get rid of it?”

Again, it’s just you, so people won’t notice it if it’s properly hidden.

Preference changes; solitary confinement seems better than the hustle of the crowd.

Everything else becomes oblivious except the very sound of silence, which seems overpoweringly loud.

No one can understand what you go through, so stop looking for consolation.

You’re the one who has to find the courage and kiss it goodbye, enough with the negotiations.

It’s time you do something about it; turn to the light and pledge yourself.

Remember, “If anyone can save you from this unending pit of darkness, it is you, yourself.”
