"Our history is nothing more than what the losers settle for"

One says the night is darkest before the dawn.
Then why am I still waiting?
Looking out the window
Waiting for some kind of hope
Minutes ticking by
I wait for one thing
The only way to conquer darkness
The despair with rises with the moon
Fades with the sun
Tears falling
I wait
Hopeful to see light in the east
Or a bird’s cry to bring joy to all
I wait for hope
For the sun to end darkness
And cast away all doubts and fear
To see a smile as bright as the sun
Bits of red appear
I am still waiting for dawn.
As I have done many times before.

The author's comments:
When someone is gone, they wait for them to come back. This woman is plagued by nightmares and waits for the sun to rise. So she does not have to see her son being killed or husband drowning at sea, or her own death. When the sun comes the fear is casted away, but when the moon comes up she becomes a completely different person.
