Why Embrace the Darkness?

As you read this you may ask yourself: Why do you embrace something that no one else would touch.

The darkness is who I am. During the day, I must submit to my alter ego to look normal. Once the 5:00 p.m. bell rings, the darkness embraces me once again. I have the ability to hide amongst the shadows. You will see me one minute and not see me the next.

The fact that I am black helps. But for 35 years, I have had to live this life. I tried to run from it. But I finally accepted my destiny.

Every man has a destiny. Mine is enshrouded in darkness.
