Son (poem)

I am the sun.
Awake, all-seeing, ablaze.
I look down on everyone,
and will continue to make days,
after the end of your days.

I am the sun.
You’re creatures that energy plays.
Your story has but just begun,
my children of love, children of rays.
From dawn to dusk: with wisdom I raise.

I am the sun.
And know what your story’s worth.
Your purpose isn’t merely for fun,
or visceral greed capitalizing the earth.
So show respect and kindness to your mother, Earth.

I am the sun.
I will watch your story finish.
Space is nowhere to run,
you’ll slowly, surely, diminish.
Then I’ll be alone, dim, then shh…

Like you, I am mortal, I am the sun.
