"Success is not final, Failure is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts."
-Winston Churchill-


Shelter from the night lies not always in the light.

Shelter from the night is not courage or defeat;

It lies within the maker

Of this black and soundless beat.

It lies within the hopeless,

The ones who don't look back,

The ones who have a purpose.

Therefore it lies within us all,

Beating on the cage we make for our emotions.

A shelter locked up tight,

Unused, the fixes rusted.

Goodnight.

Goodnight.

Night

It lies in wait.

Goodnight.
