Today

Uhunoma Leonard Iyahen 1986 (United States)



A new dawn
A new month
Since been born
In this world
 I have seen days
Like this day.
A sweet day,
A good day,
Some not so
Some sorrows.
In been broke and so low
My head up my hope fought
I get through it all.  

A new born i
Have become
While its dawn
On my lawn
Awaking from
 sleep too long
A fresh start has now begun

    Wow! This poem beautifully captures the essence of a fresh start and the potential that each new day holds. The use of simple and concise language adds to the overall impact of the poem. The positive and hopeful tone resonates and leaves a lasting impression.

    One improvement suggestion could be to enhance the flow and rhythm of the poem. While the simplicity is refreshing, adding some variation to the sentence structure or incorporating poetic devices such as imagery or metaphors could take the poem to another level. This would help create a more captivating and engaging reading experience.

    Overall, this poem is a wonderful reminder of the power of resilience and the beauty of new beginnings. With a bit of refining, it could become even more powerful and impactful. Great job!
