Inventing Darkness

We invent darkness, trying
like small children
to stop our own light
our energy
from making shadows
from pushing
into places we cannot
we invent darkness
to hide, to pretend
to become less;
as we are afraid to be
more, afraid
of being noticed when
being noticed
we invent darkness, always
looking toward
futures without us,
without those moments
we already gave
thinking, always thinking
our light is too
it is not
we invent darkness but
we are
a billion suns
