Farther apart we go and stay
No direction and nothing to say
A trail? We don't need to follow it
I've got my map and you've got your wit
Until the sun comes down for a sit
Sun says "I'm tired of shining, it's too hard to glow"
"People see the light but not the burning below"
"They take advantage of my warmth and glory"
"Don't even care to hear my story"

The author's comments:
We have such an unbelievable power to shine. Let it out.

I love the rhymes and the meaning of this poem. :)))
