A Poem I Actually Get (by Dave Grossman)

Poetry does not need to be flowery and light. It can be a great way to communicate sober truths and Lt. Col. Dave Grossman does just that with The Angel of the Night. Most poems I read leave me scratching my head and wondering what the author is trying to point at. This one is clear and true.

The Angel of the Night

Fear not the night.
Fear that which walks the night.
And I am that which walks the night.

But only evil need fear me …
and gentle souls sleep safe in their beds…
because I walk the night.
