Masking the Darkness

Standard

As a mom to a 6-year-old girl, I have become a listener of Radio Disney. Growing up myself, I couldn’t list a single pop artist or one of their songs. Now not only can I name the artist and the song title but can sing along with the lyrics. In fact, I find myself sometimes I find myself listening to “her” station even when she isn’t in the car. The following song is of course very popular on Radio Disney right now. The tune is very catchy but the lyrics ring so true.

“Dark Side”
by Kelly Clarkson

There’s a place that I know
It’s not pretty there and few have ever gone
If I show it to you now
Will it make you run away

Or will you stay
Even if it hurts
Even if I try to push you out
Will you return?
And remind me who I really am
Please remind me who I really am

Everybody’s got a dark side
Do you love me?
Can you love mine?
Nobody’s a picture perfect
But we’re worth it
You know that we’re worth it
Will you love me?
Even with my dark side?

Like a diamond
From black dust
It’s hard to know
What can become
If you give up
So don’t give up on me
Please remind me who I really am

Don’t run away
Don’t run away
Just tell me that you will stay
Promise me you will stay
Don’t run away
Don’t run away
Just promise me you will stay
Promise me you will stay

Will you love me? ohh

Don’t run away
Don’t run away

Don’t run away
Promise you’ll stay

Throughout out our lives we all at sometime or another have a dark side that we try to mask in order to maintain our desire to appear perfect Why do you put such pressure on ourselves and in turn on others. Wouldn’t it be better to be able to throw away the mask knowing that those around will care and shine light on your dark side because they too will need the same done for them at some point along the road of life.
