False suns

Like the flowers,
We humans crave the light 
And lift our faces to whatever sun we find, 
Which, like the sun, might offer grace or harm. 
Might be the spotlight that we crave, 
That need to be the center of attention, 
Or simply being in the presence of celebrity; 
Might be the thrill of belonging to a group, 
Or the furied drive to make it on our own; 
Might be the ecstasy that comes with addiction, 
Or the pride we take in flaunting our abstinence- 
So many temptations to follow lesser suns, 
But only one will ever truly make us bloom…
