This is a rewrite of my earlier work Darkness

I hear it all

The words they say

Hurtful and cruel

The evil words fill my mind

They think to describe me

Hateful words, demeaning words

Everywhere I look

All I see is hate

Evil looks from evil people

They build me up just to take me back down

Deeper and deeper into this swirling darkness

But then I think

That’s not me

That’s not who I am

I am me

And I am strong

I am beautiful in many ways

I am kind and helpful to all who need it

I am like the rainbow after a storm

Happiness in a dark world

The hope of tomorrow after a long hard day

I am quiet

I am fun

I am a rock

Holding strong against those who would break me

This is me

 So they do not know who I am

They could not even begin to describe my light

The light that cheers and laughs

The light that hopes and cries

Licking at the air

Eager to spread

To take flight

The light that is tired of being snuffed out

The light that is in me

Is brighter than the sun

I will not be snuffed out again

And I will scream
