Sunshine

I live in an area that’s not particularly sunny, so seeing the sun is always a treat. I usually open up my windows to allow the natural light in. While this poem does talk about the actual weather, it also describes a state of mind many find themselves stuck in […]

Sunshine

A part of mine I take in time

Something I see and long to be

A face in a mirror

Graced with a slower pace

And a tempo more moderate

Than contemporary

I see this sunshine

Find a smile in its sunny rays

Ticking off the days when it will graze

The front of my yard

A place that feels far beyond my current state

Which I hate because I relate more to this mind

Than the one I left behind

I wish it wasn’t hard for me to find

This sunshine

For this sunshine used to light up my skin

It was blood and something I lived in

It was my smile and bright, bright eyes

A world without malicious lies

Constant surprise for the highs

And the joy I brought to others

Treated them like sisters and brothers

Sought solace only in my mother

Yet now there is no sun

My days are done having fun

Even when I had some work to do

I always managed to push through

The end was always near

Yet now it isn’t clear

When and if everything will disappear

And leave me to stand here

Alone

Feeling the sunshine spread its hand

Help me stand

And giving me reason to love my land

I live in an area that’s not particularly sunny, so seeing the sun is always a treat. I usually open up my windows to allow the natural light in. While this poem does talk about the actual weather, it also describes a state of mind many find themselves stuck in, especially during this trying time. Isolation is a difficult and sometimes detrimental process, yet it is a step required to see this entire ordeal through. Stay healthy, stay strong, and we’ll all see the sunshine in the end.
