shining

you say it is the sunshine you crave
it is shining
you just can’t see it from your dark cave
you say you need the warmth, the light
it is shining
you just don’t give yourself the right
you’re not willing to go outside,
outside yourself, outside the “comfort”
of what you already know is no good for you
you say it is the sunshine you crave
and it is shining
as brightly for you as it ever was
if only you’d open your eyes,
your heart,
your mind
