Read Poetry: The Dawn, by Reginalde A. Abia


It’s 5 o’clock in the morning
The dawn is nearly breaking
A start of a new day
Another chance, and challenge it brings

What is its importance?
That may bring in your life
Or just passed it at once
For it is the same last night?

As the sun rises from the horizon
Orbits in its usual direction
Moving morning, noon till dusk
Like a man changing its mask

Did you ask yourself as you wake up in the morning?
Or just leave everything in your bed, whatever
Did you thank God for a new day?
Leading ahead in your way

The dawn is a symbol
That dark nights cover the whole
But in a long run, after all
Bright future welcomes you with ardor

Our life has its own dawn
Until we become mature and full grown
Let’s have faith in ourselves, let it blown
For God above, He will sown
