Sunlight

Sunlight trickles from your hands

And into the causes that give you

Life. You hold onto the people

Who need you, to the ones who

Have watched their dreams shatter

Who the world has neglected as they

Try, in spite of everything, to build

A home and a future. You work to

Heal the hurting because you deal

With your own pain. And you’ve been

There, you know what it’s like to be

All alone with the thing that makes

You different. And you won’t let other

People be alone. It gives you purpose

It keeps you going. And every once in

A while, when your own days are hard,

Someone pays attention. Someone

Sees you need help, too. And they reach

Into their pocket to give some of that

Beautiful, needed sunlight back to you.
