Before I begin my next semester full of classes
I have one summer test left, and that is today.
I’ve studied and I feel like I’ve worn out my reading glasses
But I went to bed, and laid awake until day
Actually, the sky was still dark, the stars were still out
The house was silent and still
The only one awake, I walked about
Until I heard them, soft yet shrill
The birds were still singing
The night wasn’t over yet
and the birds were still singing
I think this changed my mindset.
I realized I don’t have to wait for the light
I can still sing through the dark
Even birds know everything ends, even the night
they don’t even need a spark.
So I’ll smile through shadow
And I’ll smile through the night
Because eventually the dark will have to go
And then comes the light.
