I dream of seeing everything

Try riding a jeepney at night. One that whizzes past barren fields or unlit buildings. One that has a glaring lightbulb by your eyes. As you gaze out, no shadows or silhouettes are discernible. It's pitch-black.

You are so close to that harsh, yellowish-white light that nothing else can be seen. Because there is light, you see nothing.

Maybe it's the same with being blind. When you're in love, they say you see nothing else but his perfections. When you're bent on a cause, they say you see nothing else but the kindest of intentions.

Because there is light, you see nothing.

What is it that you see?

In some cases, the light may be detrimental to us, wiping out other objects from our vision. Yet, what if we don't want to see the other objects? Sometimes, darkness is much scarier than one thinks it is, especially when it's not outside but within one. Sometimes, it hurts to recognize the dark truth. That's why we overwork ourselves; we welcome any distractions from the darkness clawing inside. There are certain pains a person can endure but for some, the dark side hurts way too much. I think I'll die an old fool, thriving on bright illusions.
