There resides within us all
secret and dark places.
The angry, unforgiving side
Of our happy, smiling faces.

It’s where we store the ugliness
The world has shown exists.
Cruelty, hate, and avarice
What we resist, persists.
Embracing our own darkness
We understand and know
There is no light without the dark
No arrow with out the bow.

We choose the path we follow
In darkness or in light.
This choice will make us who we’ll be
Which torch we will ignight.

A fire will burn within us
Empath or narcissist.
At any time along the way
The path, it just, might twist.

Care for your thoughts
What we think we do become.
So really , it is a choice.
Think consequence and outcome.
