Conflict is inevitable; It's in our lives every day.
We strive to avoid it, And lose loved ones to it, But don't realize that war isn't only found on a battlefield.
There's an infinite battle occurring,
And we all unknowingly take part in it. We fire our weapons, striving to bring our side to victory.
But, though we all try to fight on the same side,
We remain unaware of where our loyalties truly lie.
The 2 sides have many names:
Good Evil Light Dark
They each try to take over the world,
To cover as much ground as they can. They try everything to recruit soldiers, But the numbers are equally matched.
Light provides Warmth and Love, Compassion and Protection.
Though it's filled with everything that is good, and right, Some feel rebellious to stray from the "Goody-2-Shoes" side.
They are led to Darkness, Who in turn seduces them
With inner Fantasies and Dreams, Deep Desires and everything that is just Out Of Our Grasp.
But some fail to notice the demons hiding in the shadows,
Waiting to drag them to Nightmares and Horrors. Some are lucky to escape their clutches, and fight back with Light.
"Oh, dear Storyteller!", you cry.
"How do I evade the Dark and Evil? How do I fight back in this war with Light?"
But, alas, you already ARE in war, dear reader!
To truly take part, and scare off the monsters, all you must do is this:
Take a deep breath, Reach out,
And flip the light switch on the wall.
