 Light Is Hope - Poem by Paul Matthias

The sun is innocent
The sun is young and knows no evil
Bring not to its awareness
Your hopelessness
Sunrise brings forth surprises
Pre-destination is forbidden
Predict not, make no guesses
What will be will be, not worth the burden
Sunlight brings forth good tidings;

To the believed
It's too young for determination
The yellow smile is alive
There's good on the way
The beam falls to pave way
And let the eyes see
As quanta hangs in the air
To let the birds see
Light is hope

    As Luis said below me, the poem's diction is very faulty and takes away what a beautiful poem this could have been.. Maybe a few edits here and there would make it a better one:

    [
    The sun is innocent
    The sun is young and knows no evil
    Bring not to its awareness
    Your hopelessness
    Sunrise brings forth surprises
    Pre-destination is forbidden
    Predict not, make no guesses
    (What) Will be will be,
    (It is) not worth the burden
    Sunlight brings forth good tidings;
    To the believed
    It's too young for determination
    The yellow smile is alive
    There's good (things/news) on the way
    The beam falls to pave way
    And let THE eyes SEE
    As quanta hangs in the air
    To let THE birds SEE
    Light is hope

    Phrases such as, to it`s awareness are not clear in meaning. Do you mean to say: to it is awareness which read a bit strange in the progress of the poem? or had you in mind to pen to its awareness which reads better but still could be improved? This poem has several of these cases where the diction is a bit faulty.

    If you fix these instances and try to make the diction work more like good poetry you will have a better poem that could earn the name of good.

    Thanks and take care now!
