Poem: The festering truth

Laugh away the darkness they say, 
A simple prayer to save the day that 
Only results in wasted words and 
Sacrificial advice,
As if the truth were too tough to utter, 
The truth that there might not be another
Solution because the truth is
The darkness lives inside, 
It feeds on tired eyes 
And lonely souls
And it will continue to grow
Until you know that the darkness
Is not just in you, 
But is you, 
The festering truth of reality.
