When in doubt, be self-assured

Light was blocked far away from where it could reach a million dreams, and just like that it vanished into eternity. Darkness didn’t seem foreboding as I once imagined it to be, it just felt as natural as daylight could be.

The traps, the fallacies of imagination didn’t pounce on me and neither did a ghost catch me unawares. Darkness is a safe place to be for a brave, nay, self- assured soul.

Opera of contentment watered doubts away, yes, outlook of life changes from despair to hope, if only I’d give it a chance.
