Morning light

"Morning light" - poetry by Roshan James, Wellesley, Ontario, Canada

Text: In the morning light You’ll see my scars Hidden from last night’s eyes Notes of where I’ve been Who I’ve known And unknown All of what worked Then fell apart And my waking hope is You’ll remember Writing in the dark

Quietly cries the night

  Text: This is one of those days when the words aren’t there To write about the dangers of love Or the bravery of unbound hope It’s a straight-up kind of day that bleeds tired Into a night that cries quietly For a morning that will come too soon
