rise

what do you know
about bathing
in sunlight
have you felt it’s
warmth embrace
your skin?
let the gaze
of blazing
beauty
illuminate
even the
darkest parts
of yourself?
this is how
you know
you’re alive
this is how
you know
you rise
day after day
you rise
you rise
you rise

but even when you set
you are just as radiant

what do you know about
strolling in moonlight
have you felt
betrayed
by its changing faces?
they are only cycles,
crescent means
you have more to grow
and there is still light
soft-
teaching you the brilliance
of the glow carried within
dripping
from your skin
this is how
you know
you’re alive
and night after night
you still rise
you rise
you rise
you rise
