The Sunrise Ahead



It often occurs to me

Throughout the day

That no matter the failure

Loss or dismay

No doubt in my mind

That the sun will rise

Bringing new opportunity

To claim the prize

And what could that be?

That elusive goal

To turn a riddled heart

Into something whole

Each day you try

And give it your best

You can go to sleep

Cause you passed the test

It’s not about the things

We gain in this life

But rather a strengthening of the soul

Through victory and strife.

– Evan Sanders

    Nice post, some words that stood out: “Each day you try

    And give it your best

    You can go to sleep

    Cause you passed the test” … Keep writing
