The repetition of your title in this poem adds the punch to each point your crafted words are making. Great job.
As I read this, I felt as if I were spiraling down a dark, black hole. I was hoping for light at the end of the tunnel and you did not disappoint. Nice job of showing the cloistering emotions of blackness; and ultimately how to overcome it and not be afraid.

I had wanted to do a positive piece on darkness, but I couldn't come up with an idea! I'm glad you did! I was encouraged by the hope in your wonderful writing and would like (with your permission) to share it with a family member who is going through a black time right now. Thank you!

The title and repeated phrase "embrace the blackness" were extremely effective and creative.
