Dark Nights



Dark Nights


We all have dark nights,
And that’s alright.
It’s part of our journey.

When they come,
we have a choice.
We can either
Cower in fright,
Distract ourselves with
Intoxication and perpetual motion  
Or be like the Dark Knight
And go into the shadow.
Hunt down our fear,
Bring it to the light,
Overcome our terror,
And make it a superpower.

Because when you conquer
Your fear of bats,
You become motherfucking Batman.

So be grateful for those nights,
O hero thou art,
For hidden in the pain
Is your greatest gain.
