My own take on the word..
What is darkness? Evil, pain, hurt, fear? Darkness is loss of hope, giving up. Darkness is nothing but weakness, those in the dark are fearless, this does not make them strong, for true greatness is overcoming that fear, never losing hope, hope is true strength. If there is no fear how can we be strong? how can we have will, how can we hope? The darkness only consumes the weak, the strong never truly lose hope. They do fear the darkness but that only makes them stronger for they are still willing to stand their ground and battle through the darkness no matter what never losing hope! Darkness is the easy way out of suffering, the strong battle on never losing hope! ©
