Be Like the Sun

A story I’ve meant to tell you,

but lost on a tip of tongue,

perhaps a tale from the old days—

days when both of us were young.

Or then a story of lover, maybe,

or the one who got away,

or regrets that turned to poison,

with each and every day.

I swear I thought I told you,

my memory, it’s fading fast,

but unlike the sun and moon,

it was never meant to last.



Moral of the story: humans like to live and think in the past. It’s only when we near our end on planet earth that we come to realize what a waste of energy and power that is. Be more like the sun and moon and rise new everyday.
