Poem: I’m Not Sunshine

image

I’m not sunshine
Never been perfect
I’m only amazing
When the light is right

I can’t help from being
Who I am
Scars
Inside and out
It might not kill my kindness
Makes me suspicious, sinister
It’s only a defense
From the perceived evils outside

There’s still a light inside me
But in my own fortress
It doesn’t shine as bright
I’m no beacon in a storm
I only give enough light to see as much as I need
