Dark journeys

The inspiration for this piece comes less from the prompt

and more from the contribution of

RESPONSE
accretion of dark layers
on brightness of my soul
refuses to be washed away
-held by hands
which rule the world
-held by those
who feel threatened by light
-held by insecurity
of differences being exposed
-held by fear
of negative consequences
 
-my embarrassment
validates darkness
-my acceptance
seals unintended pacts
-my silence
mistaken as consent
-my hesitation
becomes failure
 
What stops light
from spreading its glow
rationalization evades action
stops justice in its tracks
and then ….
we grow accustomed to darkness
