New Day - Poem by Colm Hayes

Fear not the coming day
You can not run nor hide away
Embrace the breaking of the morn
For in each sunrise we are reborn
Hold out your sins and be absolved
Darkness and light have revolved
What once was black now is bright
Open your heart and let go the night
Awake from sleep for dreams fake
See the new world, it’s yours to take
Cast back your shadows at the dawn,
Be a king, not a pawn.

    how the heck can you rhyme so well.
    i tried the whole rhyming thing, and it is hard.
    but you make it seem remarkably easy

    this is my favoraite
    keep writing -Aryn
