Hello internet dwellers!
Life is like the Night.
Yes, your first thoughts may be that nighttime is dark and cloudy. And that’s true. Sometimes it’s scary not being able to see where you’re going or where anyone is. But when you get away from the hustle and bustle of the smoggy city life, you gain a sudden clarity. It’s not the sky that has been dark and scary this whole time, but rather something else that was barring you from seeing it in its true form.
Though the pure night sky is still dark, that isn’t its only quality. Between the somewhat sinister blackness, there are spots of brilliant light. These spectral orbs may be far away or sparse at times, but each is truly breathtaking in its own way. Some may be bigger or brighter than others, but each star gives of a halo of light, turning what had appeared to be an evil darkness into something more elegant and fitting. When viewing the sky all together with these lights, it becomes intensely beautiful.
During the day, the stars are invisible because the brightest star is shining and everything is light. Some people live in the sun, and they get burnt. It’s not healthy to never give your eyes a break in the blinding light. It becomes impossible to see in moderate light. All you can see are spots because you’ve stood out in the daytime for too long. They can no longer admire and appreciate the light because they soaked it in for so long and took it for granted.
No. The night is preferable to me. It’s much easier to appreciate the light in moderate darkness. It might be scary at times but when it’s late and you’re driving with the love of your life it is truly beautiful to just sit on a hill or a high place away from it all and watch the night sky. That’s when you realize: there’s nothing scary about it. You’re not alone and the bright stars help you see. It wasn’t the night itself you feared, but the people who may have been lurking in the shadows.
Life is like the Night. And the Night is beautiful. As long as you never let your starts burn out
