It's so dark 
Why not close my eyes
My spirit whispers
You'll miss the sunrise
Life's so unfair
Why not just despair 
My spirit whispers
You'll miss the one who cares

The world may be grinding down
But my spirit's not giving up
The masses may wear a frown
But I'll always have enough

It's so bleak
Why not throw in the towel
My spirit whispers
Your moment is now
It's so cold
Why not hibernate 
My spirit whispers
That would be a mistake

The world may be filled with rage
But my spirit's won't conform
Mind control a prison cage
But my spirit's free to transform

It is what it is
My spirit will define the word
So I can make sense of it
When the world says it's up-surd 

So while the world is filled with hate
I've never truly loved more
They say the planet's growing late
But I see dawn at my door

Dawn's at my door
Dawn's at my door

Dawn's at my door

    I love the Dawn...I love the word...DAWN. my sister-in-law's middle name. I'd love to have a name like that. Lovely poem, LM. As usual, you draw your reader right along your joyous song. Hoping for a brighter day...
