I was born at night, with no light. Until I saw the light with no darkness. I prayed to God to show me the light in darkness, But now I pray and wish, I could see the darkness beyond light. I wish I could see the darkness beyond the light of their shining golden armor I wish I could see the darkness beyond the reflections of light off their shining shields that hide the enemy in darkness. I wish I could see the darkness of what they think deep in their brains, Not the glittering weaved hair they wear and walk neck tall in the light I wish I could see the darkness in their eyes through their dark pupils down to what they see in me, Not their long black eye lashes and cat eyes that tempt me in the light. I wish I could smell beyond the darkness of their nostrils Not their sharp pointed plastic mortgaged noses I fall in love with in the light. I wish I could hear the darkness through the wax in their ears not the all made up glittering and gold filled ears I see in the light. I wish I could see beyond their smooth tongues rolling on snow white teeth To find the darkness in their words. I wish I could see, the darkness beyond the soft glowed and smooth lips shinning in the light.
