You can find me outside somewhere. I'm a proud environmentalist from 5 years old.

I primarily write poetry, but sometimes other things too.

Be kind

Complicated Like the Sun

November 1, 2020


The sun is a lot of things
Both good and bad
It allows for all life
But is destructive if gone mad

Its blasts cause chaos on earth
Its light sunburns your skin
It can cause cancer
And eye damage too

At the same time it is beautiful
It literally lights up the sky
Letting colors fill the earth
As it flies by

It even allows for the moonlight
Even in the night
We can feel confidence in the sun
To bring us light

It keeps us in orbit
And lucky for us
We are close enough to the sun to not freeze
But not too close that we burn

Although some people die of heat stroke
Others freeze from a lack of sun
Playing in the sun can be fun
But can also make you run

Without an atmosphere, we would die from the sun
Yet without the sun we wouldn't exist
After all the sun is complicated
And it can both help and hurt someone 
Even at the same time

So the sun lets us live
Even if it is one of a billion stars
It is the reason for our existence
And can very well be a way of demise

So like humans the sun is not perfect
Mistakes and flaws keep us grounded on earth
In this universe
They allow us to live

Because the sun both helps and hurts
It both gives and it destroys
It lets us live
But would be fine if we died

So we are all suns
We should know that very well
So let us try to be nice
Because the universe will always come and bite

That's right.
