Monday morning vacation was due, woke up very early as i watched the veil of light-over-darkness grew
My mind being conscious of that, the fear for the dark flew
At that moment i wished it would be day all-through
Cherish the day-light like rubies and cookies but many never understood
Saying "bro what's up with you" and i said “it’s in the night that darkness consumes pls let me enjoy the pleasant rhythm of the day-light’s perfume
Don’t you watch horror movies or scary cartoons?” Jide grinned and said ”boy being paranoid is like a shoe wear it and it leads your path too” 
Hearing that he left me confused and i said to myself “maybe i shouldn’t be scared of the dark too"
 
“12.02AM” in the morning my phone rang! using (nokia tune)
Still sleepy i yawned as i answered “hello Matthew” his voice on the phone was skeptical kept panting 
Trying to use the most suitable of words to break the news didn’t hear all he said clearly though but, 
The little i heard was enough to change my mood "Jide is dead" he said in a sad mood.
Pronto i dropped the phone and fell to my kneel grabbed my bible by my bedside and the candle in-between it!
”It’s better to be paranoid!” my thoughts kept echoing inside of me ”Jide is dead due to wrath of the evil that lurks at night” 
Knowing that no man would want to end up like him, i kept praying to the most high until i felt at peace!, 
Slept on the tiled floor until the day-light once again struck the heart of the dark.
Ahhh..”again morning it is..thank you Lord” stretched my arm to the stool beside my bed where my journal was,
Strolling through the pages! my mind triggered this “Lord this is not the way to live; drowning in sorrow at night is not the way to be pleased” 
My thoughts kept saying to me “a new reign must begin, follow the lord in truth and spirit and your sleep shall be sweet”
Heavenly tunes of the lord i heed closed my journal and my mind said “A New Chapter Begins”
