Fear Of The Night

Amidst the good and evil of the 
night
For the darkly heavens gives 
out stars for sight
Mixed the sun reflections off 
the moon for light
The serpent can see its territory 
from left to right
Slithering past it's victims as to 
give out a phantom strike
Has many clinch their fist and 
barricade their eyes
Brings forth illusions too the 
many unwise
That evil only comes when the 
earth mourns it's skies
But even a serpent can carry a 
disguise
For any truth can be covered 
with transcendent lies
But truth can be found through 
the shadow of their eyes
Where the wicked lay as their 
hatred breeds
As if blood spills brings true 
nature to a seed
For true fear is the driving force 
to this heed
Who's the true creator, the 
anchor for this deed
For it's us that falls to it's every 
wish and need
The true arrogance of the world 
today
That falls victim to this old 
cliche
Fear the night until it turns to 
day
It's a steady diet with an 
unfortunate replay.
