Midnight Brings The Dawn

It seems that all my life I’ve seen some darker times Now and then the times I knew were more than I could stand. But, learn we must, from all hard times and soon we come to know It’s trying times that we go through that makes a boy a man. When we feel weak at heart and think we’ll never make it Our spirit strengthens us to somehow carry on. It’s then we learn that just at midnight things could get no worse And soon we see the darkness fade and midnight brings the dawn. Every midnight has a dawning Every dawning has a day Where daylight shines on things remembered And some things lost along the way. And every passing daylight Brings evening into play Where we’ll face another midnight That brings, yet, one more dawning day. It seems a pattern thus emerges, Monotonous as it may seem, Every midnight brings a dawning, Filled with all our daylight dreams. Dreams are meant to bring survival To those who may have lost their way. Who found the darkness of the midnight Kept the dawning light at bay. So, as near as I can figure, There’s this we can rely on However bleak the darkest midnight, After midnight comes the dawn. Written by John Posey 04/09/13

    John, I'm reading this a few hours before dawn and I can feel it. I wrote a poem called Whispers At Dawn' years ago but it's a long one. Hope is what I mean! Thank you for Hope!

    John -- you wrote my life story. This is a favorite of mine as it hits home for me and has really been me. Midnight to dawning and dreams that kept me going. You had the window to my soul. Great write my friend, Debbie K.

    Debbie, This is based on scripture, which I can't cite at this time. It basically says that the night is darkest just before sunrise.... Thanks... Love ya dearly... Jake

    This is such an important and valid mindset to have. There are too many people that think the total opposite. That this life we live in is the "dawn and sunlight" while afterwards there is only "midnight and darkness". Such an insightful read... loved it!
