I know why the sun rises
Against dark forms and vices

To unveil the day
For work or for play
To transform the time
‘to its fruitful prime

I know why the sun rises
Through peace and in crises

To expose tainted blushes
In ornamental plushes
For a better picture
Of now and the future

I know why the sun rises
In moments of controversies

To point to new directions
With glowing expectations
To guide both mind and sight
Away from impending plight

I know why the sun rises
In defiance to man’s atrocities

As the Lord wills
(demanding no bills
In exchange for duty)
Revealing divine beauty

Oh, yes, I know why the sun rises
Friend, do you know why it sets?

''...If I can stop one heart from breaking,I shall not live in vain; If I can ease one life the aching, Or cool one pain, Or help one fainting robin Into his nest again, I shall not live in vain... ''*Emily Dickinson* ... I will make their Darkness Bright...

    To dry the tears of yesterday,
    As it promises a new dawn of possibilities…
    That’s why the sun rises…
