“I accepted my place in the darkness
and made it a home.
Still lost, but still home.”
It’s been years since I’ve seen the light of day. Years trapped in a place of perpetual darkness. A forever midnight, under a blanket of stars and among a land with violent creatures that lurk in the shadows. It took time, but I’ve adapted. Now, my eyes can see. Now, my instincts are heightened and I’ve learned to listen to them. Now, I have a place to lay my head to rest. I accepted my place in the dark wood and made it a home. Still lost, but still home.

No matter how hopeless your circumstances seem,
there’s a way to adapt, there’s room for hope.
Don’t give up.
