For the sun, but also for me.
In so many ways, you are very much like me.
Helping plants and seeds grow.
Shining your light upon the dark places.
When You’re down, you’re actually just working on another part of the world.
You tend to be brighter in the summer. So distinct, more potent.
Everyone’s trying to catch you and your radiance, even if it’s for a few moments.
They will warn others that if they get too close and have too much exposure,
they’ll be in danger and at risk.
But I say that cancer was man made.
You’ll grow taller.
You’ll grow stronger, and darker like your father and his father.
And they’ll despise you for it.
But Sun, we need you.
