Morning Due

Nighttime falls and I feel afraid.

The darkness that was gone has returned.

Dreading what’s to come,

I hold to the truth that it will pass.

The night is dark and often unbearable.

A time of no light and sometimes pain.

Like an insomniac at night I know it will be long,

But I hold to the hope that it soon will be gone.

This darkness is for a while,

But in the morning I once again can smile.

Saying that I made it and the night was won,

Because it didn’t consume me and day has begun.

I take it all in the sun and sky,

Pretending that one day I’ll grow wings and fly,

And show others how to make it through that thing called night.

I love writing and believe that it's therapeutic to me particularly poetry because I can really play with different techniques. I also love to share inspirational writings including food for thought and just odd ideas in my head but mainly poetry.
