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,
