The Enemy

The silence scares you,
Because it screams the truth.
I'm here to make you shake,
And your backbone break.

Wherever you go,
I'm sure to follow.
Try to get rid of me,
But remember you're stuck with me tomorrow.

I'm not the first you'll ever see,
Nor the last you'll ever meet.
I'm the black before the white.
I'm the tunnel before the light.

There is no name,
That I cannot borrow.
I can cause pain,
And remember you're stuck with me tomorrow.

I'm the mountain you have to climb,
Before you reach the other side.
From me you'll have to learn,
What you have is what you'll yearn.

I'm like the rain,
Which brings about sorrow.
You cannot hide,
'Cause remember you're stuck with me tomorrow.
