The opposite of love
Is not hatred but fear
Hatred is simply
An armour for fear

Darkness is not
The opposite of light
It is simply
An absence of light

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

  2. I love that natural way that opposites highlight each other. It tells a wonderful story to think that one is too scared to love passionately in a broken world and acts out of hatred as a definition of Strength. And yet in relying on Strength to exert control, one fails to see how Fear overPowers (controls) their Mind.

    And isn’t it absolutely amazing how in one moment everything is dark and then light comes and BAM! Darkness be Gone. The shadows still exist of what once was, but a clearer picture and a deeper understanding can no be felt no matter how long the light ends up shining.
