The poem "The rising sun" is a sonnet. It is about a woman who is in labor; her fears and tears. This poem uses rhyming words but yet metaphoric to illustrate her thoughts during labor. She desires the rising sun- the baby.

The mourning of prolong time grips me tight.

Oh how I desire the morning's light

where my unflinching pains farewell I bade

but of the rising sun seems far in sight

of which I have prayed for with all my might.

My hopes of the future will soon grow fade

if the time crawls like a snail in the night.


My tears are turned into fears by my plight

yet, the rising sun seem like a decade.

The night is a battle game I must  fight

and my plight has grown to another height.

Then I see the adversary with a blade

proceeding to slit my throat in the night

as I pushed my morning sun rose so bright.
