I have recently learnt that our eyes are designed (for want of a better word) to detect darkness, rather than light.
I am prompted by this to write the following.
“There is aught learnt without ignorance
there is no merit in chivalry within a world unstained by corruption;
We see that which delineates our blindness,
so let us embrace the dark
for without it, there will be no light
I stand not upon a pulpit, preaching for sin!
I only contest that we must embrace its perpetuity
we shall never know joy.
He who endears pain and misery will never know sorrow or grief
for they are the fuel of jubilance;
It is the most noble of endeavors
to not only accept the anguish we endure in our lives, but to love it still
for after pain comes pleasure
and if pain is pleasure,
then pleasure is heaven
