some people fear the darkness

its quite common, i have found
i do believe that they perceive
that demons will surround
.
not monsters from their childhoods
that would lurk beneath their beds
but as they're blind, i mean the kind
that dwell inside their heads
.
but there's another darkness
and i want to make this clear
for in this place, there looms the face
of ignorance, i fear
.
i find there are some folks
that are imprisoned by this thing
inside their booth, they shun the truth
that knowledge would soon bring
.
there is no shame in angst
when shades of darkness fill the room
there's no disgrace, when thoughts are laced
by shadows that may loom
.
but pitiful, are people
who remain there in the dark
their ignorance is so immense
they never see the spark
