This poem is dedicated to my oldest son, Cedric, who has recently completed Junior High School (JHS) and is waiting for admission into Senior High School. Cedric and I both share a passion for reading. He cries with me and laughs with me. He is my numero uno.

A New Dawn
 
A new dawn
Is all I crave
A new path
Is all I want
For you
My son;
 
No more
Idleness,
Wasting,
Wilting
Of dreams,
As the flower
Under the harsh glare
Of the noonday sun,
Shrivels
For lack of nourishment.
 
I give you love,
I nurture you
I guide you,
A beacon
As the light
Blaze
Soar,
The sky
The beginning.
 
The vanguard
Of a new generation,
Bold
Beautiful,
Confident
Fearless
Noble
True.
This is your joy
Your tomorrow
