a poem about how we only remember God in times of need...

In the darkness before dawn

The darkest the night will be

Before daylight flows in

and set the spirits free.. 

 

Just when darkness starts to take control,

the sun peeks from behind the ends of earth..

Black and white turns to grey

Then color arises and we forget to pray...

 

Everything's better in daylight, it seems

Now we forget the important things..

Cause while it's light, 

there's no darkness, no fright, no fight..

 

Everything is clearly there

There's hope and peace

Flowers and trees

But we forget about who made these things..

 

So now colors start to fade again

Sun goes down and darkness flows in..

Colors turn to black and grey

It is now that we remember to pray.. .. ..

Man, I'll be honest; as a Christian, (not a perfect one, mind you) I tend to forget what I have to do to stay in the right place, as this poem is a very firm reminder of this. One heck of a poem, van Graaff.
