I have always been afraid of the dark (or rather, the unknown), but I don’t struggle with that anymore. For the same reason I no longer struggle with spiritual dark.
It is in those there shadows of the night,
That I sense by sight a dense and dark fear,
It is in these times of failed humanity,
I cry to draw near,
Nearer to my God, nearer than before,
Closer to His inspired, inspiring word,
Yes, in these times of withered fallen state,
I cry to my Lord.
