Sunrise, Sunset

Sunrise and sunset, indistinguishable 
unless you know what direction you face. 
East or west, forward or back, living or 
giving up, giving in, saying goodbye. 

Does this gold signal a new day dawning?
An invitation to work, a promise, 
possibilities, hopes, dreams, a future, 

if we seize the day and work together.

Or does dusk follow, fading into dark? 
Sunset shadows, shutting in, shutting down, 
time to go, moving into that long night.  
I am not ready—I say it is dawn.
