Advance or retreat

Wind whistles, leaves rattle
the sun is bright, the moon is dark
the opposite of do is don't
advance or retreat.

Life forms, death knocks
life is lasting, death is sudden
the opposite of life is death
advance or retreat.

As if a child in the night,
without his nightlight we are in fright
like the child fears the night, we fear the night
so easily we fright, we retreat.

As if a lion stalking it's prey
we stalk our prey, we live for the fight
we crave the fight, like the lion craves the kill
so we fight, we advance.

Advance or retreat, who are we?
