    When I rise to greet the world each day, I shine.

    I have no choice.

    Even in the midst of heavy clouds, I am there.

    You may not see my radiance everyday, yet I am still present.

    When I rise, I touch the world with my very existence.

    I am omnipresent, even in the dark of night,

    releasing you from the shroud of blackness and

    wrapping you in an embrace of resplendence.

    When I rise, souls take notice, mankind gets on its feet

    delivering to me a standing ovation as I light its path.

    When I rise, birds begin to chirp.

    The world starts anew, each time I rise.

    When I rise, the majesty of creation is revealed.

    I am center, When I rise.

    You shine like the queen that you are. As I read this, I felt such a rush of positivity. Eloquently written.
