A Poetic Tribute To Those Early Risers—You Know Who You Are

You are the quiet ones,
the sneak down the stairs ones,
the lace up your shoes in the dark ones.

The dedicated.
The committed.
The persevere when you’re tired ones.

You are the goal seekers,
the high achievers,
the don’t give up ‘till it’s done ones,

the quiet space in the dawn ones,
before the day awakes ones.

You are the run the day ones,
the get it done ones.

You are the Sunrise Chasers: the Sisterhood of the Early Risers.
