Even in Darkness

People grow, people change.
Nothing ever stays the same.
Seasons turn, and as they go
every seed will have to grow.

Things begin only to end.
Your foes are sometimes former friends.
What you know may cease to be.
You're never caged, but never free.

With those you love, you one day part.
It tears a hole in mind and heart.
Tears of sorrow, tears of joy,
things are built, things are destroyed.

To every truth there is a lie.
For every hope, another dies.
Drowning in the tides of fate,
learn to breathe; it's not too late.

Know, my friend, that there is still
joy to come, and days of thrill.
So take my hand, escape this night
and follow me into the light.
