She often liked to play with fire, Always chasing after what her heart desired. That day she stood in front of the blazing sun, Trying to catch the morning light, to make a run. Through the gloomy clouds the sun quietly whispered to her, Fear not my darling, even though things seem a little blur; These clouds of doubt and fear will drift away, Only if you hold onto a little, just wait for the sun’s first ray. For you are born from the fire that you often seek, The light that radiates from you is just a tiny peek. So just shine through the haze from wherever you are, Just as I continue to radiate light and warmth, long and far.
Epilogue: Too often, we go chasing after things and people that we are attracted to, that we feel will add meaning to our lives. However, during this journey, we often forget to think about ourselves. If we begin to recognize our own power, the potential that lies within, we begin to discover ourselves. You don’t need to chase after all these external variables, when you realize that you are enough. That you, yourself, are all the light you will ever need!
PS: I woke up to this sunrise after only 2 hours of sleep in one of the most remote AirBnbs I’ve been to. Felt like the perfect place to be during this pandemic, a perfect countryside beauty. I could see the sun rising through my window and I HAD TO run outside to see it! 🤩
