From Sunrise to Sunset
From sunrise to sunset, I am constantly reminded of who I am.
I raise my head high to the sky above me,
And there it is,
My daily perpetual reminder.
Giving me the strength to start a new day,
Giving me hope for the future.
It rises every morning without fail,
It shines on the world, giving light to everything it touches,
It creates a beauty far more incredible than you can ever imagine,
It is like nothing else that exists on this planet,
It is continuously moving and growing,
It is ceaselessly changing and learning,
And every day, it begins the same way.
First, there is complete darkness.
The darkness that blanketed the night, giving us rest,
Then each color emerges, breaking through the twilight.
The blues are consistent and flood the sky as far as the eye can see.
The pinks are precious and delicate as they merge into the blues
Creating the purples bringing dreams and hopeful expectations.
As the golden sun pushes through the horizon,
The reds appear,
Breaking through the surface with fierce passion,
Surrounded by the oranges of thoughtful creativity.
Throughout the day, nature can try and steer you off course,
The rain might fall, and the winds might blow,
But your light can dazzle through it all.
Even when we know the shadows are just around the corner
Marking the end of another day
And giving us the aspiration of rising again!
