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.
