       Inspired by Tarot Card XIX: The Sun
    The Sun challenges us to find the light in our soul, the part that strives to keep dreams and hopes alive no matter how hard things get. The light will help us to make decisions to take us beyond our problems allowing us to connect with life.

    Sun Shine

    I've been hiding in shadows
    While tending these wounds
    Winding past memories
    and sorting through ruins

    The story's a mystery
    Not fully unveiled
    At dawn, I'm child
    By sundown, I've failed

    My dreams turned to nightmares
    My hopes chilled in fear
    I keep plodding forward
    While swallowing tears

    Short selling prospects
    Trying my best
    I give all I have
    Then I settle for less

    Where is the justice?
    What peace can this bring?
    Will this ever stop hurting?
    When will I get to sing?

    My worth is my question
    The answers unclear
    If I'm someone to someone
    Will that help me to heal?

    My way: Disconnection
    Disjointed, I split
    I remember forever
    When I'm too full
    I quit.

    The card spells the challenge
    Wounded child never sleeps
    She alone holds the answer
    Still the dream keeper weeps

    The dream weaves through moments
    Shines its way through the years
    Lies in wait in the sunlight
    Finds a voice through my tears

    The light filters golden
    Shows the way to somewhere
    I drag myself forward
    As I learn how to share

    Some days I'll feel sunshine
    Wiping tears from my eyes
    Aware of life's blessing
    I smile- fully sigh

    Some days fill with darkness
    I turn numb from the turmoil
    Lose my place and
    I hide

    Place my hope in the Present
    Seeking light on the way
    Hug the ground during hard times
    Find a way through the day

    As I heal, I'll wear purple
    Ever true, never done
    I'll raise my face skyward
    and sing to the sun.

      Happy day!

    I have felt like this recently and applaud you for putting the artist insecurities out there - or the insecurities we all feel. I like the rawness of it!

    Great job!

    Smiles to Share ;-)
