Day Is The Shadow of Night


The day is the shadow of night,
life is the shadow of death.
Days and nights pass and ages bloom,
and fade like flowers.
I don’t want to be sheltered from dangers
but to be fearless in facing them.
No, I don’t want to beg,
for the stilling of my pain,
but for the heart to conquer it.
