DARKNESS AND LIGHT

Darkness is the shadow of the light,
Day is the revealer of the night,
In both, the same heart beats and lives;
Each to the other the other gives.
Both give homage to the sun,
Where light and shadow both come from,
For without that fiery flaming orb,
The soldier could not wield his sword,
Nor could an eagle spread its wing,
Nor would there be a choir to sing.
Nor people asking why oh why,
We die to live and live to die,
And God would not be there to find,
For there would be no one with a mind.
