Waiting For The Sunrise

I used to sit

And stay awake all night

Waiting for the dawn

The advent

Of a fresh day

With new beginnings

The rising of the sun

An inspiring metaphor

Of how

I would lift myself

From the dirt

But it never panned out

The way I envisaged

And in time

I realised my mistake

Instead of sitting still

And waiting for sunrise

I should have kept moving

And let the sun never set


Response to the Word of the Day Challenge prompts: uplifting & advent
