The first time I wrote this was actually sometime ago. ^^; I kept putting it off because I was never sure of it - if it was good and the likes. But because of myself and many stupid actions on my part, it got deleted with many other files and (to my horror) all of my stories that I wrote in my spare time.

Anyways, I decided to rewrite it because I felt a deep emotion to the subject. I was originally inspired to write the poem because of what people around me seemed to think about the "element" darkness. I honestly wanted an answer to a question that bothered me for a great amount of time; what is so bad about darkness? I began to ponder the question and I came up with a conclusion - which is described in this poem.

The first version was so blunt that I didn't want to repeat it - ever. :XD: This one is a bit more cryptic, but I kept the same underlying idea. Can you figure it out? I will award the winner a :cookie:. :XD:

This concept sounds familiar... :XD:
I like how you showed that each element has the power to take away what it gives.  The contrast of ideas was very eloquent.  The concept (broadly) is one I've been chewing on for a while.  I tennd to just categorize things further until they sit neatly into black or white... but you've done a pretty good job of showing that they are really just gray.  I guess it's the intent and usage that makes them good or bad.

Yeah. :XD:
I agree. ^^ It's not the elements themselves make them good and evil (to be blunt) but more on who is using them. However, there is one more underlying idea in it. Can you figure it out? ^^

Thanks for commenting. :D
