Light by Amber Reid

The sun is so powerful

Bright with extra radiant 

Extraordinary light illuminates the sky

The light kisses my face

Oh how I feel the warmth of its embrace

I open my eyes 

I see kids laughing and playing 

In the sun

Couples holding eachother close

Life blooming in front of my eyes

I wave at people smiling passing by

I greet the day with a grin

I know that today is the day 

Lives are being Lived

Love is being shared

Laughter is contagious and being spread everywhere

Plans are being set to celebrate and make memories

Vibrant people sharing in the radiance of the sun

The sun is so powerful and bright 

No one can ignore its beautiful illuminating light

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
Our world
