This poem is dedicated to the eternal legacy of President Cesar Chavez

Dawning of a New Day
 ©2008 Syneeda Penland

Up against a mountain I stand tall,
I’ve weathered the storm,
I fought them all.

They gathered their armies
while slandering my name,
forcing me into hiding
to avoid any shame.

I’ve suffered pain and agony
of living in fear,
always running and hiding
the closer they drew near.

Tired of feeling helpless
from not submitting to Da’ Man,
I got down on my knees
and prayed to the LORD
for His plan.

I donned GOD’s armor
preparing for the next battle of war,
while facing adversity
I was determined to settle the score.

My enemies stood before me
their evil words pierced my shield,
yet I never surrendered to the wickedness
while in the sorcerer’s field.

I broke away from my silence
and cried out from the mountain top,
demanding PEACE
for this WAR to stop.

The arrogance of their egos
forbid them to quit,
take responsibility for their actions
they will never admit.

My enemies would rather live in sin
and carry their lies to their grave,
rather than submitting to the LORD
for their souls to be saved.

LORD, this victory is yours
I’m forever blessed to have served
as one of your soldiers
who’ll remain forever committed
to your word!
