At Dawn: Two Poems

May 13th, 2014


Now dawn turns to dust
Run as the footsteps get closer
As the cold air suddenly turns brisk
There’s no turning back now
Faster! Faster!
It all happened so fast…
But now you know why
Dawn is when all of humanity comes out
And the things in the night are soulless monsters



They say bad things happen for a reason
But the reason for my pain was unknown
The night held me in its cold embrace
Only sadness penetrated my bubble
My mind longed for an escape
Suddenly the earth stops
All life is still, all time is frozen
The light slowly rose from the edge
The opportunities called me
The green grass and sunshine screamed my name
The heat popped my bubble
Could it be that joy has found me?
Is it possible that I am free?

Chelsea Ramjeawan and Brittney A. Daye are students at Uniondale High School studying under Ms. Sheeba Varkey. Both these poems were submitted this year to a poetry contest at the Uniondale Public Library.


As a morning person myself, I can wholeheartedly embrace both these poets and their celebration of the coming of the day. There is a commonality here that I find myself a part of.

See more from Uniondale High School. And come back for another day of poetry tomorrow. If you want to be part of 30 Days of Poetry, send your poems to until May 30th. I look forward to hearing from you!
