Somewhere in the world of dreams

A New Dawn

Rating: 4.5
In years of cruelty past
there came a new dawn
the bright light burned
melting frozen hearts.

Come New Dawn...
break forth a bright new day.
Oh sun come...
part the long dark hair of night.

The time has come...
The need for a new justice
Freedom from all these
demi gods of money.

Sun burn away...
Melt these gods
and their ice palaces
Leave nothing behind
But God's judgement.

I was drawn to the title: 'A New Dawn'. The poem is as fresh as a new dawn. The time has come... The need for a new justice Freedom from all these demi gods of money. Sun burn away... Melt these gods and their ice palaces Leave nothing behind But God's judgement. Very strong and impressive words. Good theme, nice message, good write. Enjoyed reading.Thanks for sharing.
