Why Rush The Dawn?

Fri, 10/04/2013 - 23:57 -- a.lee1


Why rush the dawn?

It will get here with the new day

Enjoy the silent hour before

The dawning of a new day

Why rush the dawn,

If your life is peaceful

And your hopes wholesome?

For with beginnings

Come the consequences of

Unrealistic dreams being burned

Away like the dew by the

Bright dawn of reality

Why rush youth?

You've got the time

Of your lives ahead of you

Don't rush the dawn

Wait for the day to change

On its own

You can never receive

Time back from your wastefulness

Do not give yourself the option

To wish for days past-

Live for the day you're living in

Why rush the dawn?

It will come soon enough
