Our darkest hour

Contributed by softerware on Tuesday, 26th March 2019 @ 04:55:16 AM in AEST
Topic: HumorPoetry

Theres no defeat in swift retreat,
Ask those who persevere...
Perhaps thats why when evenings nigh,
Your shadow disappears.

I love this but I failed at the humor part. 😕

I like thinking of things about shadows disappearing and the like.

And if friends and mates cower, not backing you in a fight, then they`re worthless.

Hopefully I can turn my F into a D-.

I dont think of it as the shadow disappearing as much
as going into hiding. Because maybe shadows have
the same fear of the night and dark that we do since
they are an extension of ourselves. When the sun is
out shadows mimic us so its only my way of thinking
that believes that shadows would want to mimic us
in sleep as well.
Thats why we need to choose our battles wisely.

Great little piece my friend as always
