Darkness

How much can “darkness” truly control ones life? First, let us look at what darkness truly is. Darkness by defection is 1.  the state or quality of being darkThe room was in total darkness.

2. absence or deficiency of light: the darkness of night.

3. wickedness or evil: Satan, the prince of darkness.

4. obscurity; concealment: The darkness of the metaphor destroyed its effectiveness.

5. lack of knowledge or enlightenment: heathen darkness.

6. lack of sight; blindness.

Now that we have the definition of what darkness is we are going to take a look  at number three. “wickedness or evil” The question that comes up is does darkness truly control ones own thoughts or is this just an excuse to claim when someone does something that they know they should not do? If we look at several different movies we can see that darkness is a central focus point. It doesn’t matter if it is Star Wars, Big Trouble in Little China, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Transformers, or to even children’s shows such as: My Little Pony, Rainbow Bright, etc… When we look at today’s society we do see darkness all around us. We hear it on the news, we see it in the Newspaper, we even see it in front of us even though many would turn a blind eye, and worst of all we see it in ourselves. Personally, I do not think there is one person that does not have some type of level of darkness in them. None of us are perfect. We all have faults to some degree. The question is what do we do about it? For those who read this: when I say “we” what I mean is I am talking about everyone as a whole. Those who make up all the people on this planet.

When someone says, “they have been consumed by the darkness” we normally take this to mean that the evil inside of them has taken over, but is this really true? Can someone truly be consumed by this darkness or is that an excuse? When someone does something wrong “we”,as in society, are quick to blame the wrong doing of that person. We do not know what that person is going through. We don’t know what troubles they are having and yet we point the finger, and very quickly might I add. Yes this planet has full of unstable lunatics, but who is truly the one to blame for that? “Society” tell us how we are supposed to act, or think, or dress, or anything else that deals with everyday life and that is not fair to anyone. There has been an uprising of shooting, stabbing, suicides, and everything else because people can’t handle the day to day stress of wondering what someone else thinks. It is becoming a major problem and yet all people do is turn a blind eye. Granted people are responsible for their own actions and should get the fully justice done to them. However, revenge is becoming the thing because it seems that those who should not be punished are getting punished and those who don’t get punished should be the one to get punished. We see things in different ways and sometimes those ways can get us into trouble. It is always best to ask questions if one does not understand, but this is not always possible. It is never a good idea to assume anything yet people do.  So it goes back to the question “does the darkness consume” and if it does why? Some of these questions are for all of us to decide. There is no right or wrong answer. For there is no true right answer to begin with. People will continue to do what they do as they see fit. Rather by choice or by someone else’s choosing. This is how it is.
