Fire within 

Even if the sky should fall 
And the Earth should open up
Threatening to 
Swallow you through its cracks 
Even if the Ocean should roar
With so much fury 
That it drowns the sandy beaches 
With its rough tsunami waves 
And soft foamy edges 
Even if there was no tomorrow 
Would you choose to stay down 
Cowered in the corner 
Afraid 
Always
Afraid
Or would you choose to
Rise
To trust
Just as the Sun does not know
what it will meet 
Each dawn 
Still
It rises 
With fire
And unimaginable beauty
It does not matter
How stormy the day has been 
Still it sets 
With 
Grace 
And gratitude
So too will you 
Rise 
With a 
Fierce radiance
So too will you
Set
Quietly
But
Boldly
Knowing that today
You lit up 
The whole damn sky.
