Sunflower of Redemption 

You are a ray of sunshine

That’s what they used to say,

Now, I’m tainted.


What used to be a golden shine,

Now is an orange tainted musk,

That flickers like an old flame.


I heard this line in a song once,

“The moon is a lie without the sun.”

Did I only shine because of society’s light?


Do I only project what I receive?

When did I become that person?

So shallow and undeserving.


I’m avoiding mirrors,

Friends and family,



I need my light,

My shining light as bright as child’s smile.

I can find my way back.


I want to feel like

A sunflower in the summer,

With no doubt of who to worship.


My unwavering focus

On a path,

To redemption.
