Darkness

My entry in Stefanie´s Altered Book themed "Darkness" illustrates lyrics by Peter Gabriel:
"The deeper I go, the darker it gets/ I peer through the window/ knock at the door/ and the monster I was/ so afraid of/ lies curled up on the floor./ When I allow it to be/ it has no control over me./ I own my fear/ so it doesn´t own me."
I love that song and believe that there´s much truth in it: what you fear is in your head.
The German words on the left page say: digging deeper, deeper and deeper, in the dark depth. If your mind feels dark you´ll dig deeper and deeper, and maybe that´s necessary to find the way to the light again.
