The Dawn Of The New Beginning

Poem By Alexander Shaumyan

This is the dawn of the new beginning,
Where everything seems in a state of flux
With new opportunities stirring and spinning-
The time for restoring my faith in love.

Where am I going? What am I doing?
Where have I been and what have I done?
I'm just going where the trouble is brewing,
I'm just going to have me some fun.

Time goes by and there are no answers,
As I consider the old and the new,
Falling sometimes, while others are dancing,
Screaming at them: 'What's the matter with you? ! '

Little by little the student turns master,
Little by little the master gives way-
With every blessing comes a disaster,
With every disaster come better days.

Torn from the womb and tossed to and fro
By unpredictable destiny's whims,
Always uncertain as to where I should go,
I dive in the water, learning to swim.

Thinking of everything that I was given-
The gift of the word, the gift of the mind-
All is forgotten and all is forgiven,
And still I love you-this I cannot deny.

Everything changes, nothing's for sure,
Torn between moments of sadness and joy,
Yet there is love of the heart that is pure
In this brief time we are left to enjoy.

This is the dawn of the new beginning,
Where everything seems in a state of flux
With new opportunities stirring and spinning-
The time for restoring my faith in love.
