A Knock in the Night: Fear, Compassion, and Connection #WriteAPageADay #Day16

A knock in the night can be a truly unnerving experience. It can awaken us from a deep slumber, jolting us into a state of heightened alertness and adrenaline-fueled panic. We wonder who could be knocking at our door at such an hour, and why.

A Knock in the Night: Fear, Compassion, and Connection #WriteAPageADay #Day16

Our minds race as we imagine all sorts of terrifying scenarios. Is it a burglar or intruder seeking to do us harm? Or is it a loved one in need of help? Perhaps it’s just a random stranger lost and seeking directions. The unknown is what makes this situation so nerve-wracking.

But a knock in the night can also be an opportunity for compassion and connection. Sometimes, it’s not a threatening or malicious presence at our doorstep, but rather a person in need of help or shelter. By opening our doors and hearts to them, we can turn this moment of fear into a moment of kindness and generosity.

Regardless of the reason behind the knock in the night, it is a reminder that life is unpredictable and that we should always be ready to face the unexpected. Whether it’s a moment of terror or a moment of compassion, it’s important to stay calm and handle the situation with grace and empathy.

A knock right in the middle of the night,
My heart beats fast, my mind takes flight,
Who could it be at this late hour?
A stranger, a friend, or an evil power?

The darkness hides the visitor's face,
As I approach with a cautious pace,
I reach for the handle, turn it slow,
And find a friend I used to know.

Relieved, I welcome them inside,
And in the warmth, we both confide,
Of times gone by, and dreams we chase,
Of laughter, love, and a warm embrace.

As the night wears on, our stories unfold,
Memories we cherish, stories untold,
And though the night is short, we cherish it well,
A knock in the middle of the night, a tale to tell.
