I'm like the sun 

Beautiful with a bright personality

You can't look at me long 

You'll see my past that contains pain

And you won't look at me the same 

That's why I burn

So your eyes shy away quick

Because intentions are no good

I hurt in silence as I do best 

Fulfill the needs of others before

my own 

Now you see why I'm like the sun

And shine alone 

This poem is about: 
My family
My community
My country
Our world
