Sunrise // Meriem Ahmed.

When the sun chases the clouds
and the dawn breaks the day –
the birds softly sing
flying above the clouds of grey.

All of the world’s horrors
and all our aching pains –
hail and bow to welcome
the light that paves the way.

A new day ahead awaits,
greeting us with open heart –
a chance to heal our hurting
and to mend our broken parts.

I stop to greet the morning wind,
my hair flowing in the gentle breeze –
choosing to not only give to the world
but to chase what the world can give me.
