About the Poem
I am a 14 year old girl from England and I am new to poetry writing. This is my first poem. It is about how someone portrays themselves, but is feeling very different on the inside. Then they realize they are making other people happy by acting this way!

You Are The Sun
Watching the world through a blacked-out window
You see no sun,
Yet people see light shining in your eyes,
You are the sun for others
Watching children play, wishing you were them,
You start to cry,
People see your child- like tears,
Yet nobody seems to care
Giving light to others,
You realize you’re alone
Your flame is burning brightly
Yet you still feel blind
But if you look deep into your heart, and open the window,
You are the sun,
Your stars need your brightness,
And one day you will find the special star,
Which will add to your flame,
And you will burn brighter then ever,
Spreading joy and happiness for miles around.
