The Truths Of Dawn

When your youth is gone,

there’s a truth to the dawn.

You see the sunrise though clearer eyes,

it’s a sight to behold.

A sky painted with streaks of gold,

as another day I awaken.

On this journey I have undertaken,

the years seem but an instant.

When only yesterday, I seemed but an infant,

now I look and see a different me.

I am not what I used to be, what I wanted to be.

Looking in the mirror, at the reflection of my face,

time has taken me here, at this instant, to this place.

I recall the laments I have sung,

over regrets, and mistakes that can’t be undone.

Here I stand, creations supposed pinnacle,

it’s hard not to be cynical.

I had my choices and chances,

to make the best of my circumstances.

The day dissolves into purple hues of twilight,

darkness comes, bringing forth the night.

We struggle to fit in, to make sense and keep pace,

but the fear of the darkness keeps me in it’s embrace.

As the sun descends to it’s slumber,

in the shadows, the ghosts return from asunder.

    1. Thanks for the compliments. Everything I have on it now, that is all I have. I wrote all of it within the last year, but I do have several notebooks full of snippets and ideas, and half finished pieces. Thanks again for the compliment. I like your stuff a lot too. I am really critical of my material. I struggle with it. I really do, but I keep writing it. I feel a sense of release when expressing myself this way. I do not talk as much.I find it harder to talk, than write.

    1. Hi, thank you for your comment and compliment. I appreciate it. I had an idea and went with it, but I had problems with this one. I couldn’t seem to tie it all together, but you liked it, so I am happy. I am a harsh critic of myself.


      1. No, I disagree, you are consistent. I am out of finished material, and now have to get back to the process of writing more. Your choice of words, shows you have a much larger vocabulary than I do. I like new words. I like words in general.
