The.Banishing::He.who.was.Sent

Light came, and went unnoticed… No, it was felt, but there were those who would not look upon it…

Light came down, that all might share in its splendor, coming out of the dark, and finding rest under the Light’s branches…

     but men found the cloak of darkness reassuring, for they knew its touch, its own comforts, and they knew its face – for it was their own…

          so clinging to the known and familiar, man sheltered in the dark, seeking not the Light, nor wanting to hear its call…

Yet, the Light came regardless, knowing man’s heart was steeped in the dark desires of its own pleasures… the Light came, so that the disguise of comfort, given by dark’s soft touch upon man’s shoulders, might be revealed as the chains it truly is…

Light came down to give Truth, to give Life, and to instill itself in all that would but have faith… that man would be released from its bondage, and walk freely in the Light…
