Night vs Day

it was Night who was worst
Night who exploited me
Night who presented challenges
Night who tore my soul

Day was simple and cooperative
he offered lies to hide behind
he shielded my tattered heart
he provided an escape

yet Night always swooped n again
long and endless and unkind
Day was never within sight
through all of Night's shadow

but the dark brought out the truths
the pain and the sorrow and the mistakes
still i clung to the light
and to the sheltering lies

only now can i truly see
i went from one mask to another
only now have the blindfolds been lifted
i can see the truths i hid from

i now longer cling to the lies of Day
or shy away from the truths of Night
i embrace what i know is right
and push aside all the wrong

The End
