Protected by darkness

Safe, hidden away

Shield against light

Kept in the shadows

Out of sight from harm’s way
Comfortable, repeatedly

Same actions, same results

Comfort zone prevents

Discovering what’s unknown

Safety measures; now limitations

Bounded by familiarity
Darkness, into light

Blinded; only momentarily

Differences overpowering

Senses disoriented

Dazed from sudden changes
Further towards unknown

Delving deeper into fears

Consumed by doubts

Urging common sense aside

Courage to the front lines

Ready or not; time to shine
