To The East - Poem by Christopher Thor Britt

I set my gaze to the east each morn’
To the east to meet the sun
I chase the light of day each day
‘til a new day has begun

Awake, indomitable soul within
No fear will grace this brow
But, tears and sweat; unwavering pride
My head held high, unbowed

No caste to tell me who I am
Nor, who I am to be
Fate will never hold me bound
I live because I’m free

Free to try and to succeed
Free to struggle through
To tread all failures under foot
And start each day anew

Patience is my soul mate
Perseverance, my close kin
Tomorrow is ever before my eyes
Just waiting to begin

So, I gaze to the East each morn
To the East to meet the sun
I chase the light of day each day
‘til a new day has begun

A new day has begun
