The stillness of the early morning
before even the birds are awake
as the sky slowly changes hues
puts me in a state of awe.
It is as if for one single moment
time has completely stopped
and there is nothing to hold me back.
No restraints on what I can
and what I cannot do.
I am the only person in the entire world
and I have complete control
over my own life.
But as the sky grows brighter
and I hear the noise of cars
and people rushing to and fro
I am jerked back to a reality
where there are deadlines and rules
and with a sigh I part with the daybreak
until the next time we meet.
