The Darkest Parts

We are the light and the darkness

I am a mixture of darkness and gold
Eager to lead without being told
Able to follow but looking away
Begging for peace but refusing to stay
I will always be both foolish and wise
Never one thing, yet remaining a prize
I stare straight into the eyes of my shame
Force it to know me and my name
Accepting my light by denying it no longer…
