‘Darkest Before Dawn’ by Jason Larsen The Society August 11, 2015 Beauty, Poetry The sorrows of many pulls upon heart strings To accomp’ny angelic voices that sing Voices so sweet but pain too intense to soothe Roads traveled so rough only time’s sands can smooth No chariot to ride worn feet wear no shoes Seems no choice left to make but still we must choose Don’t succumb to pain always refuse to lose Just as before we walk we learned how to fall Can’t stand any more? then remember to crawl Listen to the angels they’re singing your song “Pain is only temporal it won’t last long You can pass the test it shall help make you strong Don’t feel so alone we are here all along Do the best that you can and nothing is wrong” Let harmonious voices return your feet Hit the ground running from the jaws of defeat Survive the night and a new dawn will arrive In a flash of brilliance you finely realize It always seems darkest before the sunrise Feel the sunshine and wipe the tears from your eyes Watch as dawn’s grandeur reveals a blessed surprise Featured Image: “Angel Musicians” by Hans Memling.
