Why do we need the darkness to sleep?
Is it because our soul is really that dark and deep?
We twist and turn, hide our eyes and squirm,
Restlessly shedding our eyes from the burn.
But as children we desperately needed the light?
The light which kept us safe all through the night.
But as we got older, we turned a cold shoulder.
Shedding the light from anywhere in sight.
My older brother would scream, all through the night.
Simply because there was no light.
And I was just fine could sleep like a baby,
Or maybe that’s because I was its baby.
Is it because we’re really dark inside.
And that darkness is needed to recharge our mind?
But as children we were innocent and needed the light,
So the darkness couldn’t be anywhere insight?
Then as we grow older the darkness found its new home.
In our hearts in our minds, in our entire bodies alone.
That now we’re terrified, and run from the light.
I guess that’s the reason we can’t sleep in the night
Because we’re no longer safe at home with all these lights.
