The thing about darkness is that it is but a perception.
We would cling to the shadows to hide, but the truth is we are never truly concealed.
As time passes by the eyes adjust and before long we find ourselves with an all too clear vision of that which we were hiding from,
ourselves.

Some call me a man of shadows, yet through my eyes I live in a place of complete clarity. For it was in the shadows where I ran to hide.
And it is in the shadows that I found my true self.
Thought I would try my hand at a different style of literature than I am normally used too so please let me know what you think.

I'll start with technique first, the italics being the slight corrections, inclusive of the punctuation:

The thing about darkness is that... it is but a perception;
We would cling to the shadows to hide, but the truth is: we are never truly concealed.
As time passes by, the eyes adjust - and before long, we find ourselves with an all too clear vision of that, which we were hiding from
... Ourselves....

Some... call me a man of shadows; yet through my eyes, I live in a place of complete clarity; For it was in the shadows, where I ran to hide.
And it is in the shadows that I found my true self.

This aside, I love this work - the concept is amazing, the delivery approach is brilliant, and the idea itself is so concrete its worth reading and worth thinking about.

I like how you've handled your work. Its good - keep at it, you'll improve with this approach.
What do you think?

There is a clean, sharp swiftness about what is being explained here. People running from their darkness for fear of it, and others possibly running from people into the comfort of their own darkness, where a truth is found about it. I am glad to have found this in the mists of DA.
