Oh Sun

The sun is bright and hard,
Glass sterilizing it,
Belying the chilling cold just outside,
Piercing homeless garments,

Its overbearingness causing headaches,
Like micro-managers,
Or parents unsatisfied with their lives,
Pushing their offspring to become doctors,

But only resulting in slain passions,
Unrealized potential,
We do not need so much light upon us,
The heat's detrimental,
It's distracting,
You have to turn your head,
Missing the half of the world that might lead,
To the place you were meant have excelled.
