Embrace, not Endure
We think, “No, this time I will endure.
Things will be better in the future”.
Indeed, they will.
We think, “No, it can not be so!”
We’ve defeated this demon, dealt with the night and already faced this winter. And yet—
The ice pushes from the earth the stones anew.
And so we fight,
Because before dawn, although we do not see, we hear the songs of birds again. Because before dawn, before we even see the light, we feel it near. Because those same voices to us reclaim, Whom do you seek? And because of the daffodils that silently proclaim among the Dead— He’s Alive!
Oh! To embrace and not to endure, for the promise of the Morning is even sweeter!
