''Why are you loved light?'' Darkness wondered.
Light considered, pondered, and answered,
''Because I am the easy way and you are the hard way, why is it that you are hated?''
Darkness pondered for a moment, and responded,
''Because I am the dark reality, and you are the bright truth.''
Light wondered, and thought and finally asked,
''Does that mean we are one in the same?''
''No, I am hard, cold, the greatest teacher and, you Light, are the hope of dreams, the fire inside, the healer of the wounds. What does that tell you?''
''That you cannot have light without dark,'' Light realized.
''Oh?'' Darkness commented curiously.
''And that is the truth of the world. Where I leave happiness joy and ignorance, you leave sadness pain trauma and knowledge, of ages.'' Light answered thoughtfully. ''It's you who bring true rejoicing by giving reason for it.''
''Indeed it is so.'' Darkness concluded. '' I will end someday, until then God has made me as your helper-leading people to your truth which is this-God loves us all.''
''And so it is'' Light thought in wonder, in awe of the way God makes things work, even in broken times . . .even in the midst of darkness. In awe of how even darkness leads to light in the end.
