life between the light and the dark


during the day;
the light is so bright
and the dark seems impossible


as the light fades;
we cling to the light
and push the dark as far back as possible


in the midst of night;
the light seems distant
and we wait in the dark hoping for the impossible


just before dawn;
the light never was
and the dark is all that is possible


between the dark and the light
it is always darkest before the light
but in life, there will always be light at the end
