Live in the Light

Aidan Gscheidle, 18

Swept away by the morning tide,
darkness runs a race as I watch the sunrise
and the beauty of infinite
sweet second chances
is fully realized.
As I consider the dawn,
I see, no matter how many
clouds cursed yesterday’s sky,
the sun’s still on its beat,
the sun’s still making time.
Sunrise reminds me no matter
how messed up yesterday’s life,
I have yet another chance,
another day to live in the light
for the sun never fails to rise
as the Son never fails to rise.
