Dark Night

Posted on Updated on

This week’s feature for Poetry Tuesday is a poem I wrote many years ago. It was during a very hard time in my life, and where I truly was in the middle of a dark time in my life. Since then, God has brought me so far. I was thinking this week of how transparency truly puts an end to darkness. When we are transparent, God’s light shines right through us. His pure light shines the truth into all areas of our lives. If we give it all to Him, then the enemy has no hold on us, and can no longer twist the truth. Hope this poem blesses you and lets you know you are never alone, even in the darkest of nights and times.


Oh! Dark Night!
Shaded moon shadows cast.
Oh! Dark Night!
How long shall you last?
Oh! Dark Night!
In your shadow what lies hidden?
Behind the door is the forbidden.
Oh! Dark Night!
You will not hide from the dawning light,
Oh! Dark Night!
Morning comes and you lose your fight.
Oh! Dark Night!
You come to us all.
Oh! Dark Night!
I choose to refuse your call.
