Awakening

It’s an hour before dawn The world an empty cocoon Your breathe immortality And life contemplates you There are no hidden meanings Only that which hands create Buildings, causes, time You’re standing in one place Civilization is but a dream As you are the only one awake Peering into a virgin horizon That no man can take There’s no earthly demise to fear Disease, famine, or pernicious way The stars will not mislead you The sunset has no reigns You sense a world of creation Amidst the pillars of fame The clouds have many faces Yet you know not their names But the sun will always remind you Before you seize another day You’re late to work again my friend Master of your domain
