The Eyelids of The Dawn

The non continua of aluta is defeat aserta*
He who has seen the horrors of slavery will rather lose his head than bend his knees*
The life we are scared to lose for what we love, we will be forced to live for what we loathe*
When a mortal is afraid to die for his desires, he dies a dreamer*
When we lose the fear of death , death gains the fear of us.*

What keeps a slave in slavery is not chains, it is his fear of the unknown*
His numerous rhetoric questions of ‘what if’ is the reason for the extinction of his joy*
He who was a servant of fear is now a slave of the cruel*
For all that man fears that kept him inactive, he will reap as the reward for His inaction*
He who holds on to the known because he dreads the unknown will one day be held a prisoner in the hands of the unknown FOR THE LIFE WE ARE AFRAID TO LOSE IS THE LIFE WE LOSE.*

Take the step or lose the leg*
Speak the word or lose the tongue*
Sweat the sweat or bleed the blood*
The life of the fearful will ever be more horrible than the death of the fearless*
The fate of the brave is a twin _ freedom or death*
But the future of the terrified is without an option a terrible life that ends in disgraceful death .*

When at sunset the sun goes to bed*
And THE EYELIDS OF THE DAWN covers the eyeballs of the sun*
Terror knocks the door of hearts and fairy tales gives way to nightmares*
Man submits to sleep and surrenders to slumber*
For his love for pleasure and his fear of pain*
The works of man is abandoned not for the loss of importance but for the knowledge of darkness*
But even though man bows before the eyelids of the dawn, he rises again at the eyeballs of the sun.*

Just as the eyelids of the dawn covers the eyeballs of the sun*
So does the chances of doom masks the experience of desires*
The life we this day enjoyed was on the death of the fearless dead built*
The ancient drops of blood and sweats of brows mixed to become the refreshing waters of our days*
Unlike the day and night, if the dawn be death or doom and the sun be life or desires*
Those who bow at the eyelids of the dawn never rises to see the eyeballs of the sun….*

It is time to defy death (the worst of all the unknown) in other to define a life that will remain a blessing for all times.*

    Great piece here, i must say. Indeed, fear has held many of us back – even those who claim to have no fear. It’s time to rise up and give expression to the spirit of power in us.

      You are right. We have been asleep for way too long. It is high time we looked the sun in the eyes.
