Sunflowers

When sunflowers are young,

they face towards the sun

and follow it throughout the day.

Even on cloudy days,

they move their blooms,

searching for sunshine.

When I was young,

I faced the sun.

and looked to it for happiness.

I had many cloudy days,

where I couldn’t find sunshine,

but I found you instead.

Ray of Sunshine

Sometimes I like to believe

that I am a ray of sunshine,

trying to bring light and joy

to a world that desperately needs it.

Sometimes my shine gets blocked

by a pesky little cloud

or even a dark, earth-shaking storm

but it is important to remember

that through it all,

I am still trying to shine through it.

Sometimes I have to remind myself of that too.

The Sun

 

The sun is shining,

No brighter than usual.

It’s just its normal self,

Doing what it always does,

But it’s efforts are useless.

The sky is covered

By thick grey clouds,

So no light can get through.

But just because

I cannot see it

Does not mean that

It isn’t there.

I just can’t feel it.

It’s just like hope.

It’s trying to

Make it’s way to me.

But it doesn’t matter

How hard it tries.

It won’t break through

My thick barrier.
