we are the night

Cut me, bruise me, tear me from my skin.
you will never break me.
yell and scream and curse and hit me.
you will never win.
because i am the dark, the soul-bonded sorrow.
long forgotten tears stain my cheeks.
i am the blood and sweat of the children.
the children born of moonshine.
you cannot defy us.
and if you do, hell, even if you dare to try.

we are the night.
and we will not be forgotten.
