You are the sun

Didn’t they tell you?

You were the sun. 

But handling the sunlight

Can be tricky business.

Not everyone

Can comfortably bath 

In it.

Some find it scorching;

Full of heat.

I can almost hear

the ‘uff’

When they put their hands

Up to their foreheads.

Then comes across

A mad person

Who stands in the light

With their eyes closed.

Taking in each speck.

They’re smart.

The sun cannot be seen

It can only be felt.
And you are the sun.

Your emotions 

Demand to be felt 

And accepted;

So when they say ‘uff’

Leave them be.

And shine anyway.
