sunrise-with-man-760278-galleryLike the Morning Sun

Bright and early

Wasting no time, waiting no more

I rise


Like a Phoenix

Avian legend steeped in magic

Rebirth brand new

I rise


Like a Buoy

Anchored to the depth of deep dark seas

Afloat even in swaying billows

I rise high up in the waters

To help strays in ships sinking

Find shore


Like a Slithering Serpent

I shed pain

Holding venom in fangs bared

Ready to spring


Fiercely burning like the Fiery Sun

I will warm the Hearts of those charcoaled in state

Shooting up like Discorea sprouts

Out of the blackened rich Earth

Spreading tendrils gentle to soak the Suns’ never ending warmth


I rise not to hold back

No more to be bound

Shackles on the trail

Falling off my Feet

I rise


Leaps of boundless joys

Springboks in the Seregenti

A pride is born

Now the Lions roar

We’ll Rise.
