The purpose of nights


.Be awake during day and asleep at night.
Live consciously during day and retrospect at night.
Search the paths during day and note down potholes at night.
Walk with purpose during day and regret the lapses at night.
The night is given to cleanse your soul as well.

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
