We Grow Accustomed to th Darkness
We grow accustomed to the Dark -- When light is put away -- As when the Neighbor holds the Lamp To witness her Goodbye --
A Moment -- We uncertain step For newness of the night -- Then -- fit our Vision to the Dark -- And meet the Road -- erect --
And so of larger -- Darkness -- Those Evenings of the Brain -- When not a Moon disclose a sign -- Or Star -- come out -- within
The Bravest -- grope a little -- And sometimes hit a Tree Directly in the Forehead -- But as they learn to see
Either the Darkness alters -- Or something in the sight Adjusts itself to Midnight -- And Life steps almost straight.
Although the character is afraid and uncertain about leaving, he or she chose to be brave and continue. Although there may be bumps in life, one can make it through with merely a scratch.
