This world is overburdened with stereotypes, and judgements… absolutely.
But darkness does not always have ghost. It just blocks your eyes from seeing, but you know when you close your eyes by yourself… such action does not scare you.
Darkness closes your eyes for you, and it does no harm to you too.
I see things in darkness and have sweet dreams when I lose my consciousness to that dark mystery realm of subconsciousness. My auditory nerve reacts to impressive melodies in the dark area, and my thoughts are formed out of that pitch-dark corner in my brain.
I learn from those dark paths through life too… everybody does I guess. When things are bright nobody struggles. (by mentioning dark and bright here, I do not mean their metaphor.)
Darkness does not always have ghost you see, things are even better in darkness.
