Some people are so bright, most people aren't so lucky.

Some people truly shine through their dark little clouds... They might never know it. It's so dark to them and that's all they perceive is clouds; overcasts, or storms. 
 Translucency, we know these people are great, we see that they are, a little distorted it may seem sometimes. Translucent people are not afraid to talk, learn, or change themselves,  passing though the clouds, gaining what is required to focus the light, or push the clouds away. ????

Sometimes people are transparent and it's clear that they are going to shine through everything. These people are beautiful, a joy to have around, giving, cherishing, probably sober haha. Maybe a little too bright at times: causing them to be full of themselves. ???? but if you're truly in control of your life, you'd know damn well when you are being full of yourself... Which is nice about people that are transparent they understand, because it's not hard for them to understand and see! ????

Opaque... When people hide, talk to no one, constantly lie (especially to themselves), people who are trapped in a dark world hurt themselves, it hurts everyone around them. They're so blocked out from everything that they burnout any flicker that might have been there; panic, anxiety, depression, thoughts of suicide occur again and again. But we don't know about it... We can't help, Cause we don't see when there is no light... We just see a person, most of the time we walk right by these people. In fact, I believe that we walk by more opaque people than we even see transparent. Too many people hide behind closed doors and wait for time to rekindle their flame... 

Some people just end up lighting themselves on fire in a dark room.
