Friday Poetry: "Light II"

Hello loves! The last instalment of the Dark & Light poetry series is today; you can read “Light II” below, and as usual, please do let me know what you think the comments. I'm not sure if I like this one, so I'd love to hear your opinions on this on its own and compared to the other three poems in the series—and, of course, on the series as a whole.

Hope you enjoy the poem. Have a stunning weekend, everyone!

Light II

when we were children
we would ask our mothers to
check under the beds for monsters
and still, even when
the cobwebby corners of the room
were pronounced monster free
we would curl up tight tight tight
into balls of exhaustion and panic
and force our eyes open
paralysed with the fear of what might lurk
in the darkest pockets of our souls

but no one has ever been afraid
of finding a monster
under their beds
in the bright sun-kissed daylight

because in a world
forever shrouded in darkness
such a precious treasure
such an infinite wonder
to witness the innocence
the release from the chains of fear
the light
