Before the dawn

Before the dawn

A Poem by Thorn

A poem about light giving way to darkness, which in turn yields to the light.


It’s always darkest before the dawn,

Night has a price to pay,

For being on both sides of life and day.


In that single hour, no moon treads the sky,

The stars gaze away from our human eyes.

And though we see, we fear what we can’t

As though shadows can prowl and strike at our hearts.


It’s always darkest before the day,

While the sun is asleep and the moon slides away,

As the shadows deepen and colour turns grey.


Though eventually some light shall come,

And bring with it a sleepy sun,

To dispel all fears of torture and pain,

To cleanse the earth like a gentle rain.
