The Dawn of a Day | Poem

The Night has done its best

In quieting my Spirit and body

Re-strengthened my brain and mind

To deliver a unique freshness

Even before the day breaks

My eyes have rested

And is now empowered for daytime

Opening a daylight with promise

A world never seen before

To capture all within it reaches

My hands have become potent

To articulate all that is conceive

Within my thought

As becoming worthy of living

Arresting the world for good

My legs have become empowered

To conquer distance

Propelling my entity for exploit

Giving a raise to my achievement

Placing me before kings

My being will always appreciate

This indescribable gift

That re-fortifies my body

Shielding me from diminishing

And marking me for prominence

The dawn of a day

The first hour of the sunrise

That introduces the weekdays

To cease in weekends

Extending into months and even years
