But why is the darkness waiting?
If it is waiting for the light in order to crush it, to destroy the light and make it darkness, it will find it can never do so. In time, it may extinguish the source, but the light will travel onward, radiating into the darkness, proclaiming its very existence in defiance of all the powers of darkness.
But…if it is waiting for other reasons…if it is waiting for its complement, to find its opposite and learn more of its true self, to not be lonely…for all its speed, it has a long while to wait. And an eternity to experience its completion once the light arrives.
