  He is the Sun


 

He is the sun, that shines on my despair

Radiating a warmth of love so rare

His strength pushes the clouds of loneliness away

While on his pure brightness my eyes stray

His rays reach my waiting arms

To caress my cool skin with his charms

Sometimes blinding me with a heavy haze

Turning my head with his simple rays

 

He is the sun, that shines on my cold heart

Quickening it with promises to never part

Although the somber rains always seem to appear

His light shines through my darkest fear

Even waiting through the melancholy night

Cherishing the thought of being in my sight

Lulling me to sleep with his reflected glance

Shining his love off the moon like a dance

 

He is my sun, that shines on only me

Burning my life with strength to be

Fueling my needs with love and care

Holding my hand when I just can't bare

He gives me shelter with his fierce heat

With his devotion no other can compete

Night and day he proves his love is strong

But I always feel cold when he's gone too long

Previous Winner 

Congratulations to our poetry winner Speechless, for the poem entitled, "Magic." (June 2010)

  Magic

When life seems the worst

There is always someone living in more fear

Like the victims of hurricane Katrina

Or the disaster in Haiti this past year

We stress about a bad hair cut or the size of our legs

While people struggle without limbs, or hair on their heads

There are diseases and sickness, incurable cancer

To all these monstrosities there is yet to be an answer

People die every day from hunger or heat

There are kids who have never sat down to dinner, or had shoes on their feet

So how are we so ungrateful, we can’t begin to understand?

We freak if we chip a nail, or lose our summer tan

What about the families who have no place to call home

Or our elders who have seen everyone pass and are left alone

We don’t take into account the lives of passerby’s

You can’t tell what someone’s been through by just looking in their eyes

So before we judge a person based on their stature or stance

Be unlike the rest of society and give them a chance

We could donate some dollars or give up some time

But you might say your days are more valuable than mine

So what puts us on a pedal stool higher than the rest?

Nothing, at all. We’ve just been blessed

In this glorified world, people steal, people lie, people stoop so low and cheat

Cause the one thing were scared of, is facing defeat

We always want to be the best floating at the top

But what when all the superficial things come to a stop

When the smiles are cleared and we face something tragic

Think of the rest of the world, make a change, perform magic.
