    The sun-
    is the most oppressive of all-
    because he knows-
    without him-
    your worthless.

    The son-
    is the most oppressed of all-
    because he is unaware-
    that the sins of the father-
    echo in the mouth's of his acquaintances.

    The older burns the skin-
    leaves the face charred-
    just to let you know he was there-
    so they can remark-
    "Spent too much time in the sun?"

    Of course-
    His presence is not only felt-
    it's seen-
    visible, not only to the son-
    but the daughter.

    I hope I never radiate-
    never illuminate-
    I wish never to scorch the fair hair of the moon.

    Heaven make me a star-
    so I will not burn out,
    and lay claim to every living thing.

    Unlike the sun-
    when the son as a star burns out-
    No one will ever know-
    that he was missing.

      I love how you relate things to the moon, the star, and the sun. It is a spectacular poem, great read. I enjoyed it very much. I get parts of it, but it is 7 AM and I have barely slept, so I'll probably reread it and find the deeper meaning soon, I'm sure.

      This is poignant and effective from the first line. It draws you right in. The poem has an interesting perspective, that's for certain... well done.

    Keep Writing,
