Entertaining Darkness

Paralyzed with fear,
 
Ridden with doubt,
 
Can a person live in the light,
 
Without entertaining some darkness,
 
I mean,
 
None of us are perfect,
 
All of us have our darker elements,
 
Do we truly need to ignore them,
 
Or can we embrace and accept them,
 
To a degree,
 
Without being overrun by them,
 
 
 
Therefore, can light exist without darkness,
 
Even good people fall,
 
Fail to live in the light always,
 
Avoiding darkness is futile,
 
But to grasp an understanding of it may prove,
 
To be most resourceful,
 
For how can we understand, appreciate,
 
What is pure and good,
 
Without awareness of its contradictory rival,
 
 
Which begs the consideration,
 
That we all should reflect before passing absolute judgment,
 
On anything.
