I feel an urge to tell you

Of the boy who once loved everything

From people to places to food to things

There wasn’t one he valued less than another

Because then the world was made of magic

And it powered everything in existence

But mostly because he didn’t know how not to

So he loved his parents even though they got angry

And he loved himself even though he got sad

And he radiated the world and reflected back the love he consumed

He never lost this love

It was so strong in him it energized him for lifetimes

Until he found a way to communicate with everyone on earth

So he took the light inside himself

And engulfed his whole body

As he rose to the heavens to greet the world

The boy we now call sun
