Scared Bright

The darkness can be terrifying and lonely. The night has so much to take from us; our innocence, our safety, and our clarity. Wether you scream bloody mary thrice in the bathroom or walk your dog down a dim lit park in South Central Los Angeles you can feel the night creep up on your spinal column and envelop your nerves.The only trust we can parcel out reunites with these lamps, these flickering god-sends that echo from Tesla and Edison. When you walk out into the abyss and take that first breath, remember the light in yourself and what that translates to your own idea of courage. Be afraid not of the dark!

  1. I live outside of town, way out in the woods of south Georgia. I don’t mind walking the dog at night, the stars are out and are incredibly beautiful.

    I agree that you can’t let your fears rule you. Here’s to our inner light!

  2. I understand. Parts of Miami continue to have far too frequent drive-bys. Cops are pretty trigger happy too in my opinion. We are raising a pretty hardened
    street-wise group of kids and they must be tough to walk by the crack houses to school. I understand. And I don’t like it. Regarding this violence of the hood Jesse Jackson once said we must be driven by our hopes not our fears.
