the night is the darkest before dawn




Creed is frivolous while a shot to the heart is concrete,
Mistakes are meant to be made while regrets are meant to be chosen,
I lost words while my throat is dying to yell,
The night is the darkest before dawn.

I stab my own back, He can’t take another rib,
I pour another whiteness, unconsciousness is my savior,
I’m calling out, I’m passing out,
The night is the darkest before dawn.

My sole—
temper stays composed, dignity stays clenched,
heart stays burdened, mind stays questioning,
faith stays unbroken, hope stays unstoppable,
The night is the darkest before dawn.

I kneel the whole night, I pray the hardest before dawn.

The dawn is dark,

And it rains.

Disbelief - Joshua Christian

  4. the dawn is still dark,
    the rains cleansing the faint taint,
    but the sky is empty, and silence.

    disbelief is a hard phase to move on, the answer is vague, yet we have to pursue.
    great writings :)
