Midnight (Repost)

Figured I'd go back into the vault and repost one of my oldest poems. There are a lot of good ones from the blog's early months! (New poems are scheduled for posting this weekend, promise!)

It is our responsibility to constantly revisit the dark corners of our minds and accept who we were, who we are. While these thoughts are not mine now, I had serious doubts when I wrote this. This poem is inspired by the classic poem "Do not go gentle into that good night" by Dylan Thomas, which was featured in the Christopher Nolan movie "Interstellar". I hope you enjoy this poem, but remember: don't let the darkness within yourself grab a hold of you.
