Break of Dawn


The world sleeps, silent and still
Lost in the memories of the yester-night
With hopes and dreams in a frozen chill

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem is an explicit description of the moments directly before and after sunrise. Related to each detail are the emotions and sentiments that course through me as I witness this daily miracle. I hope to convey the feeling of despair and hopelessness we all go through sometime in our lives. I'd like to encourage and motivate people through these difficult adversities and remember that in the darkest of midnights, yet will countless stars blossom. I hope you can relate in some way!

'It is always darkest just before the day dawneth'

If you enjoyed this poem, you are for sure going to enjoy my other poem 'Reawakening', written in more or less the same style with some similar underlying themes. However, 'Break of Dawn' can be seen as a more realistic parallel to 'Reawakening', in which I've incorporated some fantastical elements.

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
