Personalities (A Mind In Perfect Balance) - Poem by Glaedr the poet

Darkness has become more frequent in my life
I do not know why, or from where
I struggle through life with difficulty and strife
Into nothingness I constantly stare
I must not let darkness consume me
Because of it, I wish to remain free

The Glory, the brightness, of the light within
Has saved me from the shadows
Through it, I am free of my sin
Baptized, renewed from the shallows
This light keeps me forever free
And darkness, loses his hold on me

Darkness has a friend named Sadness
Her voice a swishing sigh
From sadness arises madness
As I bow my head and cry
Of these two I am mortified
For by them, I am crucified

Of the darkness, I do not fear!
Happiness keeps me from hell
Its clear voice I love to hear
The beautiful ringing of a bell
I marvel at these talents!
Darkness and Light remain in balance

As I take in the world
I find myself asking, “Why? ”
Into a sea of questions I am hurled
Fighting for answers, like fighting for air; except, I do not die
I have been asking questions from my beginning
So much so, it feels like sinning

I now accept things as they are
No more questions do I possess
Answers come from near and far
My mistakes I now confess
I have become strong
By admitting I am wrong

I embrace Light and Happiness
For they balance Darkness and Sadness
I know questioning― will always lead to acceptance
