Daybreak - Flashlight

You see the glow first. The radience of it.

It lights up the darkness. A star in the sky. 

It happens every day and you bask in its beauty. 

The thing that brightens up people's lives. 

 

It's something natural. Something calm. 

Something that shines along throughout the day.

The best moment of it, is when it first wakes up. 

When blush floods its cheeks. 

Its petals folding down

to reveal all that it is. 

 

It is in that moment when you get to see

Who exactly it is that stands before thee.

The sunlight spreads out to all corners of the night

until no one can hide.

That is when all is revealed. 

The daybreak is a flashlight.

This poem is about: 
Me
My community
My country
Our world
