Night will always succumb to day

I was going through a hard time a couple weeks ago and needed a way to let out my feelings. So, I put my pen to paper. This was the result. I realized that I can be my own motivation and inspiration.

Though the sky is a dark, whirling mass
I won't wait inside for the storm to pass
'Cause it isn't about hiding from rain
It's about learning to dance through the pain
Embrace those times when the clouds cry
Don't let these moments pass you by
They are rare, they are sweet
When the ground and sky meet
An exotic mixture of joy and fear
You can't tell the difference between rain and tear
But you gotta dance through it anyway
Night will always succumb to day
And soon you will come to realize
All you need is before your eyes
