Setting Sun


Looking at the Sun setting in the horizon

I watch it suddenly go down

Instinctively my hands go up to hold it

As if beholding it within my heart


I can’t allow it to fade away

To take away the light and warmth that soothed me inside

I must stop it from disappearing

Or casting a dark shadow in my life


Striving to keep the fire burning

Keeping my fighting spirit alive

I let it rest in my hands

Feeling highly energised


It may burn my hands

But its energy keeps me going

Just like the daily struggles burn me out

But holding on to relentless courage and hope of the ever burning Sun

I keep moving forward to find my victorious path.
