Uncover the Sun

Remember

 

After you’re born

remember

to polish that trusty gold heart of yours,

keep it shiny enough

to see your own reflection

in love, but not hate

 

After you’ve grown

remember

to polish that warm copper heart of yours,

make sure the patina

of the cold hard world

doesn’t tarnish your luster

 

After you’re older

remember

to polish that bright diamond heart of yours

keen enough to cut through any glass

half empty or half full

of wisdom
