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
