III. Fantasies and Dreams: The Demon and The Angel

The Demon and The Angel

One soul grew up in the lightness of the world
The other soul grew up in the darkness of the world
One that grew in the light fell into darkness
While the other that grew in the dark fell into lightness

The demon
The angel
The demon
The angel

The world shown in the light
A utopia
An ideal setting of everything that's optimistic and good
This world shown in the light
A utopia
An ideal life where everyone is happy, prim and proper, and graceful

This world shown in the light
becomes idle as each day passes
This world shown in the light restricts a
space where the mind is free to be creative
yet constrained to the dullness of wanting to be the same

One child grew into the world shown in the light,
yet she never felt accepted
One child grew into the world shown in the light
but she wasn’t optimistic or good all the time
One child grew into the world shown in the light
yet she found it hard to be happy each day,
she definitely wasn’t prim nor proper,
and she lacked the grace of most girls
One child grew into the world shown in the light
where her creativity spoke a louder volume than most children
and the idleness of this utopia bored her.

As this child aged into a young adult
she grew further away from the utopian society
The world shown in light
treated her as an outcast with no hope of her ever changing
As this child grew up
she built up an alienation towards everyone
The world shown in light
when the time came for transition from teengaer to adulthood
her parents threw her out to the wolves to fend for herself

As she got older,
her ambition to be a conqueror of challenges
pushed her over the edge
As she aged like fine wine into an adult
her spark turned to fire,
her fire drove her to darkness
As she got older
her darkness turned her into a wildling,
a demon full of passion, ingenuity, and independence

Yet she longed for acceptance,
she longed for love and comfort,
and she longed for a closure to the wound that never healed

She yearned for a light that slowly fell as she continued her journey on her own
Her yearning light faded
the same way in which she did

She was born into the lightness
but….
fell into darkness

She became a…..
…..demon

The world shown in the dark
A dystopia
An ideal setting of everything that’s pessimistic and bad
The world shown in the dark
A dystopia
An ideal life where everyone is depressed, ill-mannered and unrefined, and indecent

This world shown in the dark
becomes barren as each day passes
This world shown in the dark inhibits a
habitat where the heart is free to be humane
yet entrapped to the lifelessness of an inhospitable mind

One child grew into the world shown in the dark
yet he never felt accepted
One child grew into the world shown in the dark
but he wasn’t pessimistic or bad all the time
One child grew into the world shown in the dark
yet he found it hard to be depressed each day,
he definitely wasn’t ill-mannered or unrefined,
and he lacked the indecency of most boys
One child grew into the world shown in the dark
where his heart spoke a louder volume than most
children
and the lifelessness of the dystopia brewed a distaste within him.

As this child aged into a young adult
he grew further away from the dystopian society
The world shown in the dark
treated him as an exile with no expectancy of him ever
changing
As this child grew up
he built up an antipathy towards people
The world shown in the dark
when the time came for transition from teenager to adulthood
his parents disowned him and left him for dead

As he got older,
his courage to be a slayer of dragons
drove him mad
As he aged like fine wine into an adult
his ambition turned to change
his change brought him the lightness
As he got older
his lightness turned him into a paragon,
an angel full of commitment, determination, and brilliance

Yet he longed for an approval,
he longed for fondness and tenderness,
and he longed for a closure on a wound that never healed

He yearned for a darkness that gradually faded as he continued on his journey
His yearning darkness disappeared
the same way he did

He was born in the darkeness
but…
fell into lightness

He became an….
….angel

As both continue on their journey,
will they cross paths or forever stay separated ?
Yet they’re not as different from one another as they may think.

Will the demon and the angel cross each paths?
