Illuminating The Dark


Nightmares
and illusions

Challenges

Hurt
and anger

Barracades 

Pen and paper 
are sword 
and shield 

Adversity 
expelled 
onto the page

Consumed
banished

Darkness
illuminated
once more

    All of those therapist people are right. Writing down all the anger and pain does help to remove some of it from your heart and soul!

  5. That’s quite inspiring. Reminds me of Dumbledore’s saying ‘Happiness can be found even in the darkest times if one only remembers to turn on the light’.
