Opting For Darkness (Physical or Mental?)

and refusal to be led by the light
...any of the many...
will only leave one in darkness.
Some folks wish to remain,
knowing at least where they are going
and where they will end up.
But at least they KNOW
for the fear of the unknown
and the possibility of disappointment
are too much for some to face or bear.
I'm much too stubborn
to be kept down for long
And I'd rather follow
a false hope briefly
with misplaced trust
and a foundationless dream,
Than to sit firmly
on the cold cement of hopelessness
in the absence of dreams.
I read a poem today (Travis B's poem found at http://www.prose-n-poetry.com/display_work/14004) and I left a comment that made me think and think and think again. Well, my muse wouldn't let me rest until I'd shared my thoughts with you all. Let me know your take on it!
